  • Historical with great art exhibition. Great place to learn history very educational. Nice souvenir shop with very helpful staff.
  • National Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is, as its name suggests, here to commemorate the national founding father Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Except for its history-rich story, it is a nice park for city dwellers. Flying Kates are often spotted during the day. People enjoy jogging around the park as well as dog-walking. In the evening, it is also a great spot to take photos of Taipei 101, the most iconic building in Taipei Taiwan, and other buildings around Taipei 101. A lot of tourists like to take pictures here at National Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall.
  • Easy to access, free audio tour guide..favorable to know more about Dr. Sun Yat Sen. There is also guard switching ceremony every one hour for your experience.
  • Not as majestic as the Chiang Lai shek memorial but great area to take a picture with Taipei 101 in the background.
  • A grand memorial building and, at the time of my visit, has Chinese paintings exhibition. The changing of guards was quite an interesting sight. Free entry.
