Travel in Taiwan 171112: Blooming Autumn - Zhongli District



The centennial celebration of Yuan Kuang Ch'an Monastery highlighted the 2017 Taoyuan Flower Festival in Zhongli District.

The Weather
Temperature: 21°C
Apparent temperature: 22 °C
Wind (Scale): 2

Event duration: Nov. 4 to Nov. 12 only

After visiting the event in Luzhu District, I continued my journey by boarding again the Taoyuan Airport MRT to A19 Taoyuan Sports Park Station.  From there, I followed the signs that lead me to the event venue in Zhongli District.

Aside from flowers, there were also food stalls making the place a night market in broad daylight.


I'm not sure if these are lavender flowers.

A large musical box structure stands behind this field of cosmos flowers.  The concept in Zhongli District this year was a mixture of cute creatures and artistic representations of things using flowers.

Visitors enjoy taking photos of zinia flowers.

I could not get a good photo of this flower because of the wind so I have to hold it just to take its picture. Haha!
