If you have seen other lavender gardens overseas like the ones in Hokkaido, Japan or Xinshe, Taiwan:
You’ll probably not be impressed.
The fields don’t quite stretch as far as the eye can see. Nor can you fulfill your fantasies of walking in between rows of deep purple lavender!
But it is a lot cheaper to visit Lavender Garden than to fly all the way to Japan and Taiwan!
