Small and rundown garden

As compared to few years ago, the garden looks more deserted and no longer offers fresh flowers. Flowers in garden are artificial and the whole place looks rundown. Would not... read more

If you are planning to pay for entrance, don't bother. this place is rundown, water fountain is filled with layer of oil and algae which seems like no one maintained it for awhile. mosquito breeding area with the ducks looking pathetic gathering at only one corner. A tip: go and eat at carton king and u will get entry free.... More

Got free tickets from our hotel (also Carton King) but I wouldn't pay to enter. There was nothing Swiss about it. There was not a single real flower in the garden. Everything was plastic. Musical fountain show at night was nothing special. There may be real flowers in spring / summer but given how small the garden is I still... More

Garden is small, most flowers are fake. Can finished walking in the garden within 15 mins. I do not find anything particularly nice about it all with the entrance ticket cost 120NT. Luckily I went in solo and i didn't purchase the tickets for my other family members.

Fake flowers. Looks run down. But hey they have interesting paper craft shop just outside. And Starbucks and Mos Burger across the road. Yay.

As compared to few years ago, the garden looks more deserted and no longer offers fresh flowers. Flowers in garden are artificial and the whole place looks rundown. Would not recommend to visit as it is a waste of time. If you really want to visit, you can finish walking and taking photos in less than an hour's time.

Small Swiss Garden is mainly decorated with non-real flowers. The place is not that big and you can complete it within 15-20mins (not counting the time to take photos). Be sure to check for any entry ticket promotion. During our visit, if you spend more than a certain amount in Carton King, you can enter Small Swiss Garden for free.... More

The garden is quite small and was surprised to find certain part of the garden was 'planted' with artificial flowers. Maybe it's winter time and flowers do not bloom during this period of time. Can easily finish the place in 30 mins. We bought the entrance ticket at NT90 from Mone garden resort, the hotel that we were in. If... More

Cost us 120NTD per person to enter. Mantou Bus goes straight to its entrance but make sure you check the timing of the bus. Had fun taking pictures with the miniature figurines of cute cartoon characters and flowers planted around. Finished the walk around 1 hour plus. Good to go around 4pm so u can enjoy both the day time... More

We were surprised that we had to pay an entrance fee to get into the small garden. However, while having lunch at Carton King, we found out that for every NT300 spent, they would give one free ticket to the garden. The garden is small, with a small pond in the middle, some goose and mandarin ducks and lots of... More

No need to stop here. This is a highly commercial venue and has no importance to the surrounding area. Garden needs a ticket purchase. Spend your time elsewhere in Cingjing.
