TAIPEI, Taiwan – Shanfurong Coffee Shop (山芙蓉咖啡) is NOT just an ordinary coffee shop.
First, it is located in a far away place that is not easily accessible to transportation. It is located in Nanzhuang, Miaoli, Taiwan.
Second, it is a garden-themed coffee shop with a beautiful flowering garden. It is famous for its Hydrangea flowers (繡球花) that are shaped like a ball and have different colors like blue, red, pink, light purple, or dark purple.
Though there was an entrance fee of NT$ 100 on the day (2017.05.26) I went there, it was worth it after seeing all the beautiful flowers in its garden. One can just imagine the amount of time and effort devoted to maintaining this beautiful garden.
It is a sight to behold once you enter the place. You can feel the very relaxing ambient and it will let you forget all the worries of this world.
Here is a video of the numerous flowers in Shanfurong Coffee Shop:
