In this place, you can find many fireflies in TaipeiIn this place, you can find many fireflies in Taipei - Mid-April to mid-May is firefly mating season and the best time of year to catch a glimpse of fireflies. Thanks to a recent conservation program spearheaded by Taipei City Government's Parks and Street Lights Office, urbanites of Taipei no longer have to venture out to the hills to see them.

This is the place that you can find them.


1. Daan Forest Park

Located in the heart of Taipei City, Daan Forest Park's main area for firefly viewing is located at an ecological pond near the amphitheater in the center of the park.

People looking for a convenient place to view fireflies at night can consider Daan Forest Park, where it is accessible by Taipei Metro's Daan Forest Park Station.


2. Rongxing Garden Park

Another transportation-convenient location is Rongxing Garden Park, which is accessible by taking the Taipei MRT to Zhongshan Junior High School Station, Zhongshan Elementary School Station or Xingtian Temple Station.


3. Fuyang Eco Park

Fuyang Eco Park is far-flung compared to Rongxing and Fuyang, but still a short trip compared to making it out to Alishan. Get there by taking the Brown Line of Taipei Metro and stopping at Linguang Station Exit 1.

Once a restricted area managed by the military, Fuyang Eco Park today is freely accessible, teeming with plants and wildlife including abundant fireflies at night. Tours are offered during the day and night.

4. Muzha Park

Of all four firefly conservation zones, Muzha Park is the most accessible by bus. Government officials say it has the highest population of fireflies of all four due to the proximity of the mountainous area in Taipei.
