The 2018 CKS Shilin Residence Tulip Show will take place at Chiang Kai-shek’s former western-style garden home from February 13 to March 28, and will be open during the Chinese New Year holiday.

The Parks and Street Lights Office (PSLO) has installed a preview of the flowers for the public at the outdoor area next to the north entrance of City Hall for the next two weeks.

The CKS Shilin Residence Tulip Show will feature nearly 20 varieties of tulips and hyacinths, as well as countryside elements inspired by Dutch culture.

The Shilin Official Residence, which is housed on a 9.28-hectare park, opened to the public in 1996 and was originally the Shilin Horticultural Experimental Station during Japanese occupation. It became Chiang’s residence in 1950.

The residence is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm, and until 7 pm on weekends. Admission is NT$100.  (map)
