  • Closer to center of town and smaller than Chiang Kai-shek Memorial, but has changing of the guard and helps fill in the history of the founding of the ROC.  more »
  • This is a great place to experience the history of Taiwan and see the changing of the guard (hourly, I think). It is worth the trip.  more »

  • Place that look like similar with chiang kai sek memorial hall. There is also have statue of sun yat sen. And you will see the view of 101 building from the front side of this building.
  • This is a nice oasis in the middle of Taipei. It's very close to the new XinYi district and offers some open space. However, the interior is getting dated. The exhibits are good. The sky line around it used to be empty but now it is crowded, especially with the new stadium going up just on the north side of the hall. It feels like the development around it are closing in. The Chiang Kai-Shek memorial hall (recently renamed Taiwan Democracy Memorial Park) is a better oasis with more open space feel.
  • In the middle of the city, this place is very reachable by the MTR. Love to learn more about the founding father of Taiwan, didn't realize he was a medical doctor by education. I found the young kids doing line dancing in front of the memorial very entraining. It's also very funny the memorial staffs have signs in Chinese asking mainland tourist to be respectful and quite inside the memorial, but some didn't and they have to rush up to them and put the sign in front of their faces.
  • One of tourists destination in Taipei. It has a lot of restaurants and café nearby. A walking distance to the shopping district. Many bus stop and MRT station nearby. Really accessible.
  • You can see the Taipei tower from here and during the sunset hours the view is probably better from here than on top of the tower. the main building is just majestic and has shapes that are just so beautiful.
