Yangmingshan National Park is located in northern Taipei City, and easily accessible from downtown. It is the only park in Taiwan that has volcanic geography and hot springs. It is next to Shamao Mountain and Qixing Mountain with Datun Mountain on the right and Guanyin Mountain in front. The magnificent mountainous scenery and comfortable weather have made Yangmingshan National Park a perfect summer resort that attracts so many people to enjoy some time here. The total area of the park is 125 hectares and is designed in traditional Chinese style. The natural beauty of the part has won it the reputation as urban forest and the Taipei garden. The key highlight is the large clock made of flowers with a diameter of 22 feet and the water runs around the flower clock and music is played every hour. There is a statue of late president Chiang Kai-Shek opposite the clock and on both sides of the statue are the cypresses planted by president Chiang himself. In addition, there is also a statue of Wang Yang Ming, the famous Chinese scholar in the 17th century.
