C.K.S. Shilin Residence Park, Taipei

3.8
#8 of 94 in Parks in Taipei
Wander the green surroundings of C.K.S. Shilin Residence Park, one of the former homes of Chiang Kai-shek. The rose, herb and orchid gardens are free to appreciate, but if you are interested in seeing the interior of the house, prepare to pay an entrance fee. The estate also includes a small private chapel now used for wedding ceremonies. Plan my trip to Taipei with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • This is the former residence and the surrounding gardens of Chiang Kai-Shek and his wife. The rose garden is his wife's favorite. There are over 100 species of 1000 roses in the garden. Beside the ros...  more »
  • I mean, whether you're a team or not, the visibility of this view is also not in the palace, but this political color has not been so concentrated, as the passage of time, this is a close comfortable garden. It is now open to the public, but the mystique of the mansion is very curious, but no matter what time you can come in and see, in addition to the official residence, if you are a free friend, then I will not particularly recommend to visit the residence, the park is surrounded by the garden is a splendid place, There are different landscapes for a particular season. The whole mansion is a part of the norm, the real Vaseline Mansion is a part of the mansion and garden, which is generally free to open the garden part, the official residence is in addition to the charge, the average person's ticket is 100 yuan, to the benefit of the community, most of the choice of friends in this, not many people choose to visit the mansion, It can take a long time to get around the mansion, whether it's a rose or a western garden or a small Chinese garden. If there is still a little time to go to the "Tzu-Yun Pavilion", where you can ascend only a few people, the entrance of the stairs on the left side of the park, it has a sign that you will get to the left and right path by the ladder, but these two can walk to the "Tsz Cloud Pavilion" simply by walking around in a circle. Just the left side will be better to go and slightly closer, the right side is only a little more to walk, so you can also choose from left into the circle and down. The "Tsz Yun Pavilion" is simply a two-layer white pavilion, and since it is in disrepair, as much as there is a flower tree in the maintenance mansion, but this pavilion has been built for many times, so to come here, there is only one sense of existence in the pavilion. Where you can rest and appreciate the flowers, in addition to a quiet and less city disturb, if there is a rain, there is no suggestion, in addition to the unsuitable, there is a stage of the problem of slippery, the age of the major need to be careful of their own pace, because some places are really steep slope. If you think about walking around here, there's time to schedule 2 hours, because this park area is not small, the focus is the garden, and if you are interested, then consider spending a ticket to the mansion, not much time to come this is probably the first flower. Since this is a very early time, if you want to have fewer people and want to take pictures, you might as well choose an early you'll meet a lot of people at this time, because a lot of groups will choose to be in the park soon, so it's basically a guest, though it's a lot of people, but it's not too long to stay. If there are more free visitors in the afternoon, take a chance to take pictures. On the itinerary, it is recommended that you come here before the palace, and it is on the way to the palace, if you are going to the palace in the Czech Republic, it is possible to travel by public transport, but you will be there on the way, you can walk from the railroad station to the Vaseline mansion, and then take a bus from there to the palace, This line is the way, the return journey can take you directly from the palace to the Vaseline station to the cart to the sword pond or to the West Gate by car, because you can meet friends with the same purpose as you or you in this way. A lot of people will have a myth, the Vaseline Night Market in Vaseline, it is not but Sword Pond, these two stations are not far from walking, and in the walk on the way to see the city's Jingjing, is also a fun.
