2. Past editions of the Xinshe Sea of Flowers and the Taichung World Flora Exposition

The Xinshe Sea of Flowers usually starts on November and I had been visiting the festival since 2015. Although I still see the same flowers, each year was different as I travel with a different Travel Buddy and wander on a different physical arrangement of the flower fields.

2.1 2015 Xinshe Sea of Flowers - Taiwan Day 813: Great Expectations Part 3 “Help! I'm Drowning in a Sea of Flowers"

Flower festivals had always been part of my Taiwan Day Adventures. From my first flower festival experience in Taiwan Day 127 (As the New Year Blossoms) to the beautiful roses of Madame Chiang in Taiwan Day 581 (Roses are...) they are sure winners for my followers whether the accompanying travelogue was good or not. Add all the flower festivals in Taiwan including the different cherry blossom festivals during spring and they would not even match the flower festival in Taichung. They would just drown in the middle of a sea of flowers in a place in Taichung called Xinshe.

Xinshe District lies within the mountainous areas of Taichung. Its location is perfect for growing flowers under the warm weather of Central Taiwan during autumn. The flower festival is called the “Xinshe Sea of Flowers Festival” due to the vast fields of flowers that bloom across the Xinshe plateau. Imagine rice fields being planted with flowers instead of rice and you would get the idea of a 'Xinshe Sea of Flowers'. It's an annual event that is visited by millions of visitors and I was one of them together with Travel Buddy Kiran. The festival started on November 7 and would last for one month.

Xinshe Sea of Flowers


How to get to Xinshe? I asked the Visitor Information Center and we were advised to board a train going to Fengyuan Station. We then transferred to Bus 91 which was made as a special bus during the whole period of the flower festival. After 40 minutes, the driver asked all the passengers to alight and transfer to another bus which took us to the Xinshe plateau. We just followed our fellow Taiwanese passengers and we never got lost. As the bus goes in a zigzag road, I have noticed that we were going higher and higher until the land became flat again with different vegetables planted in fields.


Private cars, public buses, and tourist buses head towards the location of the festival making the roads a traffic hell. Nevertheless, we reached the place with the amusement of our fellow passengers as we saw flowers swaying gracefully against the wind. Everybody was so excited while still inside the bus and as the bus came to full stop everyone stood up wanting to get out immediately. I just didn't expect that there would be too many people for this flower festival. Taiwanese and foreigners like Thai and fellow Filipinos were there to take photos.

The field of pink cosmos flowers were the winners for me. I walked along its field and Kiran took a photo of me from a distance. It was an unforgettable experience to “swim” in a sea of flowers and I have never experienced this in the Philippines. After I have taken Kiran's photo in the middle of the pink cosmos flowers, a Taiwanese lady suddenly came and shouted at all the visitors walking in the fields. Blah! Blah! Blah! She was telling that all the visitors to stop walking in the middle of the flower fields and that the act was prohibited. Haha! We were already done and we successfully accomplished our mission.

Xinshe Sea of Flowers

The whole Xinshe Sea of Flowers Festival covers an area of more than 50 hectares and it's impossible to see all the flowers for a half-day. Aside from that, you get easily tired if it's a sunny day. Actually I was already tired walking for 4 hours but my Travel Buddy Kiran wants to see more of the flower festival. I had a terrible experience before during the 2015 Taiwan Lantern Festival and I don't want that to happen again. I'm afraid of the mass exodus of the visitors to take the public buses back to the train station at the closing time of the event so I left the flower festival around 4pm. I was also in a hurry to leave because I have to see Fengjia and she was waiting for me. (To be continued...)

2.2 2016 Xinshe Sea of Flowers - Travel in Taiwan 161105: Wonderland Part 2 "Swimming in a Sea of Flowers"

How do you swim in sea of flowers? Do you just jump in a pool of petals and let yourself be washed away by its strong current? Travel Buddy Teklu and I wanted to know how so we went to Taichung to learn at least the basic stroke and become a champion swimmer in the annual Xinshe Sea of Flowers.



Xinshe Sea of Flowers

First and foremost, let’s start with the basic equipment. Your camera! Bring a tripod or a selfie stick to help yourself take photos. But a good digicam is not enough to capture all the colorful memories in Xinshe. Take note on where is the location of the sun at the time of your visit because the natural lighting would definitely affect the brightness of your photos. Don’t also forget to bring extra batteries.

We boarded bus 1827 at Taipei Bus Station.

Xinshe Sea of Flowers
Regular tickets costs NTD 260 but we were lucky to have it for only NTD 220.

Next, if you are already complete with your “swimming” paraphernalia. Go to the nearest bus or train station and go to Taichung. The biggest flower festival in Taiwan is held every year in Xinshe and the Taichung train station is a good place to start looking for that mystic pool of petals. I live in Taipei so my Travel Buddy and I boarded Bus 1827 from Taipei Bus Station to reach Central Taiwan. It was hard to book a train ticket so riding a bus became our last resort. It took us three hours to reach Taichung Station and we slept along the way dreaming of how a splash in a sea of flowers would look like.

I asked the woman at the Visitor Information Center in Taichung Station to write for me the Chinese name of the Taiyuan Parking Lot.  I showed this to the taxi driver at Taiyuan Station and we reach our destination in a few minutes.

Reaching Taichung Station is just the first part of the training on how to become a good swimmer in Xinshe. Amateur swimmers must hurdle the changes had been made in reaching the event location. The classic way of boarding a train from Taichung to Fengyuan Station is no longer valid and visitors must now board a train going to Taiyuan Station to transfer to a taxi that would take them to Taiyuan Parking Lot. The taxi fare costs NTD 135 to NTD 150 and it was relatively cheap because I travelled with a friend. A shuttle bus will be waiting there in Taiyuan Parking Lot and it will take you directly to the festival area.

Once you’re in Xinshe, prepare yourselves to jump into the sea of flowers. Thousands or maybe millions of tourist visit this festival every year. They are like fishes that will compete with your chosen spot so learning to float freely is a big plus. Be courteous enough to wait for a few seconds if you’re going to walk in front of someone who is supposed to have his/her photos taken. Be also patient enough if there is someone on the spot that you want.

Just like any body of water, there are lifeguards that keep an eye on the sea of flowers. If you are an expert “swimmer”, then you might find some areas where you can get so close to the field of petals. Some places don’t have ropes to restrict the visitors to get near to the blossoms so if you’re lucky then you might get the photo that you want. But if you’re not fortunate, then a whistle will be blown and you have to get out or else you will be in big trouble.

Aside from the flowers, there were also exhibits in the festival grounds.

Greater things are about to come in Taichung because of the county's hosting of the 2018 World Flora Exposition.


Another reminder is to explore the pavilions in the festival grounds. They are like islands that provide shelter to those who got tired of floating in a blooming field of cosmos blossoms. This year, there was an exhibit about the different agriculture products of Taichung and rice hay decorations from the Soil and Water Conservation Bureau. The Taichung government was also promoting its hosting of the World Flora Exposition that will happen in 2018 and I bet that its preparation is very big.

Before you leave Xinshe, make sure you have a photo with the giant peacock. It was adorned with beautiful flowers and it was the most eye-catching structure this year. Don’t also forget to explore the whole field. You might discover a panoramic view that you will not find if you just stay in places full of people. Lastly, watch also the cosmos flowers sway gracefully in the wind and imagine diving into its oasis of petals. Take a deep plunge and find yourself swimming in a sea of flowers.

2.3 2017 Xinshe Sea of Flowers - Travel in Taiwan 171119: Blooming Autumn - Taichung

Xinshe Sea of Flowers.  The most beautiful place in Taiwan during the autumn season.  Have you been here before? I have written two travelogues about this flower festival in the last two years and I think I did my best in marketing Taichung to my blog readers.   Haha!  The festival this year was still full of flowers but I noticed that something was missing and I was wondering why.

The field of cosmos was still there but the large tall structures adorned with various flowers were nowhere to be seen.   As far as I know, the Xinshe Sea of Flowers has a theme every year which makes the festivity different each year.  If you check the photos on the internet, you might find a castle.  In 2015, the central figure was a heart-shaped structure wherein entering inside you will be taken inside a kaleidoscope world.  I remember entering that dome with Travel Buddy Kiran and we had lots of fun while looking at ourselves in the mirror.  Last year when I went with Travel Buddy Teklu, there were also pavilions to explore.

It was a good thing that Travel Buddy Adcel and Travel Buddy Graciella enjoyed taking photos with the pink and white blossoms.  It was their first time to visit Taiwan and they might be thinking that this is the best that Xinshe can offer to them.   The whole place was still beautiful only that the flowers had become less compared to last year.

One notable difference this year is the vast field of kaoliang or sorghum which is made into wine.  In my past visits, the area near the shuttle bus parking area was a big field of flowers.  This year, the kaoliang replaced the beautiful orange flowers there. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!  The carpet of marigold was no longer a carpet. Sigh! But despite the disappointing changes in Xinshe, the sight of cherry blossoms made my visit interesting.  Sakuras in Taiwan usually blossom in February.  Their early appearance meant that the trees had mistaken the cold weather in Taichung as already in springtime.

Taichung City would be busy preparing for the 2018 World Flora Exposition and the budget for the festival here in Xinshe had been allotted for that bigger event.  I might be wrong.  Let’s just cross our fingers that the real grandeur of the Xinshe Sea of Flowers would come back in the years to come.

2.4 Taichung World Flora Exposition

Approved by the Association Internationale des Producteurs de l’Horticulture (AIPH) or the International Association of Horticultural Producers, Taichung City bid and won the hosting of this year's World Flora Exposition.  Expo sites were built in Houli and Waipu to showcase Taiwan's horticulture industry.  Outdoor installations like the giant sphere with red triangles that were opening and closing together will be a sight not to miss.  At night on the festival venues in Houli and Waipu, tourists will enjoy a romantic scene as the parks become illuminated by colorful lights.  Expect the scenery to be different when you visit during the day and night until the exhibition ends on April 24, 2019.

Entrance tickets for the expo are shown below.  Regular tickets cost NTD 350, but students enrolled in schools and universities in Taiwan only need to pay NTD 250.  Those who want to visit the festival venues on a regular basis should avail of the NTD 2,500 pass.  This ticket allows the holder for an unlimited access to the venues of the expo.  The exposition will run for many months and there could be surprises and new attractions to keep visitors from coming back.  So buying the all pass ticket can be a good idea.

2.4.1 How to go to the Taichung World Flora Exposition

If you are from Taipei, the most convenient way to get to the exposition is to ride any of the trains of the TRA going to Fengyuan Station or THSR going to Taichung Station.   A Taipei to TRA Fengyuan or TRA Taichung Station express train ride is 2 hours while in the High Speed Rail it will only take 1 hour to reach Taichung City.  In any case, visitors will have to transfer to local trains  going to any of these stations to reach the festival venues:  Houli Station, Fengyuan Station, and Dajia Station.

Taichung flower festival
2.4.1.1 by HSR
Board the HSR train and get off at Taichung Station. Walk to TRA Xinwuri Station and transfer to a local train and alight at Houli, Dajia or Fengyuan Station. Visitors wishing to see the Waipu Expo Site must transfer to the Bus 92, 212, 213, 215 or 811 from Dajia Station.

Suggested itinerary:

HSR Taichung Station -> walk to TRA Xinwuri Station -> ride a local train going to Fengyuan Station to see Huludun Park -> ride train to Houli Station to see the other expo sites -> board train going to Dajia Station and then transfer to Bus 92, 212, 213, 215 or 811.
2.4.1.2 by TRA
Board any train of the TRA and get off at Houli, Dajia or Fengyuan Station. Local trains will stop at these stations ,but passengers who boarded the express trains can alight at Fengyuan Station. Visitors wishing to see the Waipu Expo Site must transfer to the Bus 92, 212, 213, 215 or 811 from Dajia Station.

Suggested itinerary:

1.  Taipei Main Station -> Fengyuan Station (by express train) -> ride local trains going to Houli and Dajia Station

2.  Taipei Main Station -> Houli Station (by local train, easiest to visit) -> ride local trains going to Dajia Station or Fengyuan Station after checking the exhibitions in Houli.

3.  TRA Taoyuan Station/Hsinchu Station -> Houli Station (by local train, easiest to visit) -> ride local trains going to Dajia Station or Fengyuan Station after checking the exhibitions in Houli.

4.  TRA Taichung Station -> ride local train to Fengyuan Station to see Huludun Park -> ride a local train to going to Houli Station to see the Houli Forest Park and Houli Horse Ranch -> board a train going to Dajia Station and then transfer to the Bus 92, 212, 213, 215 or 811 to visit Waipu.
2.4.1.3 by tripool taxi
From Gaomei Wetlands, Chungshe Tourism Flower Market, Xinshe Castle, Lavender Cottage or in any other place in Taiwan, tripool taxi will take you to the nearest train station to be able to visit the Taichung World Flora Exposition.  Since the parking for private cars will be far away from the festival venues,  I suggest putting Houli Stations, Fengyuan Station, or Dajia Station as your destination in the web app.  Get off at these train stations and transfer to the shuttle bus to see the festival.

web app: https://www.tripool.app/?utm_source=luomuji
2.4.1.4 Public transportation at the Taichung World Flora Exposition
The event is expected to be visited by thousands of visitors on a single day, so the TRA arranged extra trains to easily transport people in the three nearest train stations from the expo site.  The Houli Horse Farm and Houli Forest Expo Site will be the easiest to visit as tourists only need to walk from Houli Station.  The Waipu Expo Site will be the farthest and visitors are advised to board Bus 92,212,213,215 or 811 from Dajia Station. 
There will be also E-buses to move people directly from Waipu to Houli and this will be more efficient, rather than waiting for the public bus and then transfer to a train going to Fengyuan Station or Houli Station.  Spectators are encouraged to visit the parks using public transportation because the parking areas for private cars and buses are far away from the venues.  Shuttle buses from these official parking areas will be provided to take group tourists to the expo sites.

  1. Hi! Is it worth it going to the Taichung World Flora Expo? I understand that at least a day is needed to cover at least two of the three sites. Considering time constraints, would visiting Chung-She Flower Garden be enough as a substitute? Thanks!

    1. Chung-She Flower Garden would be enough. The World Flora Expo is more of gardening.
