  • When we were there there was a dance competition happening so it was interesting so so all the hoopla and people gathered. The building and ground are nice to see too. I wouldn't spend too much time here, but it's close to other sites so it's worth a quick drop in.
  • This is the 'Lincoln Memorial' of Taipei, with an imposing statue of the ROC's founding father, also seated, taking center stage. You can also find smaller statues at the park east of the hall. This is a popular and heavily promoted tourist attraction so expect crowds, especially during the guard changing ceremony.
  • This place is huge! Walking from one end to the another end takes a lot of energy, but the view here is gorgeous. If you're lucky, you'll be able to catch the guard shift ceremony as well, which usually draws a lot of tourists. Be sure to bring umbrella, sunglasses and lots of water if you're visiting this place.
  • Place is very huge. You get to see how Dr Sun came up with his ideology and how it corresponds to Taiwan today. If you're lucky you get to see the change of guards ceremony as well. Think that takes place once every hour.
  • Grand building dedicated to the founding father Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Spacious park for hanging out, people watching, kite flying and more. Bring lots of water, especially in the summer. The actual.building is extremely cool and has historical exhibits. On the hour at certain times there is the unmissable changing of the guards.
