  • While mourning the Chiang Kai-shek Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall where the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall is mourning the Yat building. Wen a huge statue, guarding the guards, you can visit the guard changing ceremony also. Like Wen who personally, but in buildings like the gymnasium of China Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, in vast grounds are fewer tourists than the flashy Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. Consequently, peacefully, quietly you can visit. The Museum of Sun Yat. Relics of Wen and Shek fled the Mainland in 1949, and moved the capital in Taipei, Republic of China, in 1925, was not in Beijing Taiwan rather less interesting, because it is not the only text and photo exhibitions in.

  • 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.
  • Sun Yet-Sen Memorial Hall is a fantastic Tourist spot at Taipei City, take a Panlan blue line Metro and exit 4 at Sun Yat Sen station, you can get the best view of Taipei 101 building at the memorial hall, changing guards in every 2 hours is also spectacular to watch.
  • 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.
  • 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.
