Taoyuan in Chinese means peach blossom garden and Taoyuan County used to be the main source of all peach blossoms in Taiwan, even though the plant is no longer grown in the county today. This location has received international attention because of the Shihmen Reservoir, the largest reservoir in the far east, and many visitors come to visit the reservoir on their trip to Taiyuan. The Taoyuan International Airport is one of the most important locations in the county because over 20 million visitors arrive and depart Taiwan through the airport every year. For Taiyuan County, the airport is the gateway to Taiwan. Taoyuan City is the “door to the country”.
Taoyuan is commonly known as a commercial county with Taiwan’s international airport. Yet, the multiple cultures formed by different ethnic groups in the county, the local natural landscape, and its other names such as the kingdom of flowers and plants and the country of a thousand ponds are different aspects of the county that qualify Taoyuan as a 100% scenic county. The CKS Mausoleum in Cihu, the CCK Mausoleum in Touliao, the Window of China Theme Park, the Mt. Jiao-ban, and the Magic Tree Area in the Mt. Daguan Natural Preservation are the most famous attractions in the county.
