February through March is the best time to see the flowers of Yangmingshan National Park in full bloom. This mesmerising sea of flowers brings large numbers of visitors to the park for its iconic natural scenes. At this time sakura (cherry blossoms), azalea, camellia, wild peony, peach blossoms, and many more cover Yangmingshan National Park with picturesque beauty. A day trip to the local park or mountain areas for “cherry blossom viewing” is a favourite pastime for many Taiwanese people during springtime. A number of events are usually held in the park during this season. Of particular interest is the Paper Windmill Theatre troupe's performance spotlighting Yangmingshan flowers and local history. A makeshift post office at the venue offers a unique flower season-themed commemorative stamp for stamp collectors. Picnics and tours are organised for visitors to show and tell the history of the area and enjoy its beauty today.
