Meteor Garden Filming Location in Taiwan is one of the main reason why I am so excited to visit the country. For me, this is highlight of our Taiwan Trip. Reminiscing my childhood fan-girling moment. Probably the very first time I ever fan-girl over something or someone.

Myyygaaaad! I can still remember the song! The feels!… OMG… Ok let’s start. This 3rd day of our trip, we went to “Ying De University” of Meteor Garden or “National Chung Cheng University” in real life. According to my research they also film in “National Taiwan University” in Taipei, but most of the noticeable scenes and 80% of the school scenes was shot in “National Chung Cheng University”.
Meteor Garden was aired in the Philippines way back in 2003.
Meteor Garden Filming Location – National Chung Cheng Univesity:
How to go there:
From Taipei Main Station, we took the THSR (TRA is also an option if your in a budget – but takes a longer time) going to Chiayi THSR Station. Then, since we are a group of 3, we decided to take a cab (30 mins) for TWD 500 and split the fare into 3. But cheaper way is to ride a bus #106 which will take 1 hour and a half to get there.
Then going back to Chiayi THSR Station, we tried the cheaper way. We rode a bus # 106.
When we get there, with so much excitement – we immediately explore the area. Let me take you to my trip down to memory lane. Here are the filming spots that we were able to visit.

1. The rooftop where Huā Zé Lèi always sits.
These scenes were taken from the top of the school’s admin building.
We wanted to go inside but since we went on a weekend, the school admin is close for outsiders.
2. The area where F4 graduated.
Remember when F4 graduated? It’s filming location is just beside the Admn building. This is on the school’s open area.
3. The canteen where F4 always stays.
It is located inside the School’s library. At the basement beside their locker area. We weren’t stay that long because it was so quite and there are students inside.
4. The pathway where Sanchai walks going to her class.
This is actually the hardest part to locate because there are a lot of similar area. Also, the school already changed from what it was before so we asked the security guard. 🙂
5. How can I forget the scene, where Dao Min Si or Jerry Yan in real life kissed Sanchai.
It’s located inside the schools gymnasium. From my number six location, before you head down the stairs – turn right.
6. When Sanchai and her friend Shing He was trying to get away with the bullies. And of course, F4. ?
This is located inside the school’s gymnasium. It’s not hard to find because it’s the building beside the bus stop where you will arrive.
7. Just in front of it, is the Tranquility Lake.
This location is very visible through-out the first season when Sanchai and the F4 are still studying in Ying De University.
It is also just in front of the gymnasium.
8. And lastly, Sanchai’s famous locker. A true fan knows Sanchai’s locker number….. Yes! It’s locker #150.
It is located inside the Schools Library. When you go inside. Turn right, you will see a stair going down that will lead you to the famous locker area of Sanchai and the Canteen where F4 is always at.
This is so overwhelming. I can’t believe I’m actually at the place where my childhood favorite drama series was filmed. F4 and Sanchai were here before. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! Myyygaaaddddd!!!!!! The place was actually far from Taipei but going all the way here was so worth it.
You also have an option to purchase Klook, just search for Meteor Garden Tour.
Simple things that can make this fan-girl heart happy. Thank You Lord.
