While some people are thinking to go to Japan to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom, Taiwan’s own species have already started blooming earlier this week.

According to the Geotechnical Engineering Office under Taipei City Government’s Public Works Department, the two sides of Pingjing Road and Jingshan Road on Yangmingshan are awash in Formosan cherry flowers in full bloom, way ahead of the start of the Yangmingshan Flower Season next month.

In the past few days, the mesmerizing sea of flowers in hot pink along the two roads and nearby areas have already attracted a number of sakura (cherry blossom) lovers to visit Yangmingshan, known as the back garden of Taipei.

The office said when the rest of the 50% of the budding flowers of the Formosan cherry trees turn into full bloom, the sight of the sea of deep pink flowers will be even more breathtaking.

The office said the city government has also set up two popular trail stations for bikers to ride along Pingjing and Jingshan roads during the flower season. Visitors are encouraged to ride their bicycles along the trails, which are certain to be a memorable experience.

Other species of cherry blossoms, including the Japanese, are expected to bloom between the end of January and end of February on Yangmingshan, especially at the Yangmingshan National Park just kilometers away.

The easiest way to get to the flower trails is to take No 303 bus from Jiantan MRT station in Shihlin to Jingshan Recreation Area on Jingshan Road. For the National Park, one can take No 260 bus from the Zhengzhou Road bus stop outside of Taipei Main Station. The bus stops off at Yangmingshan’s bus terminal.
