For tour groups who have not much days to spare, you may skip this entirely. But if you love gardens then go. As for the residence itself, you may only see it from the gates, as no one is allowed to enter.

Not much interested as expected. A bit boring unless you are really interested in the Taiwan history. The garden is not well organized well planted enough.

If you love good entertainment & great food, this is the place to visit. For a few more laughs, don't forget to visit the animals. Bert the cow, has a hidden talent, but she doesn't mind showing people. Clover; the Pot bellied pig is cute...More
