In addition to the luxuriant trees and flowers in the Qilan Forest Recreation Area, along the pathway there are Japanese apricots, plums, apricots, peaches and Taiwan cherries planted, which bloom in different seasons; they paint the area in diverse colors, adding a romantic atmosphere. The cherry blossoms in the spring are especially a tourist magnet. 

The Giant Tree Park in the Qilan Forest Recreation Area is the largest giant tree cluster in Taiwan, which is really worth a visit. Each tree in the Park is more than 400 years old, and named after ancient Chinese celebrities according to their respective age.
