I spent 4 hours in the hall and it is extremely worthwhile. They screened documentary about Chiang Kai Shek and you should really spend your time watching it (last for 50 minutes) if you fancy TW history (since Qing dynasty). Don't miss out the hourly shift rotation at 4th floor (where the bronze statue is located at). It was really... More

Take no.5 exit from 中正纪念堂 mrt station. You may spend 2-5 hours here as there is a exhibition area at the Chiang-kai-sek building. It's like a Musuem. Surprise to find unique species of birds near the small lake next to the building. It's a MUST GO place for first timer tourist.

This immense tribute to the maker of modern Taipei is overwhelming in its craftsmanship and size. Predominantly marble, the ceiling in which the bronze statue of Cheng is housed is made of timber in complex carpentery. The changing of the guards occurs on the hour, and is I must see. Their precision is a joy.

Chiang Kai-shek is controversial these days but his Memorial Hall is sure to interest foreign visitors. Chiang was the leader of the Republic of China for many years. He led the retreat of the ROC government from mainland China to Taiwan. The giant sized statue is interesting in itself and there is always something going on in the park surrounding... More

I love this place! I reached here at evening time, not so many tourist but a lot of local residents were doing their jogging or running here, some students were practicing their dancing here and make this place become so lively and lovely! I will come again next time with my jogging shoes, and jog like the local!

A really wonderful example of Chinese architecture. I went in the middle of the day and crowds weren't overwhelming. Easy to get to by mrt

The place is huge. The grounds are imaculate keep. I arrive a little late than i wanted, but caught the last few seconds of retiring the national flag for the day. The guards ceremony is precision at it's best. The area is large but a great place to troll. I would suggest a twilight visit to capture day and nite... More

The changing of the guard takes place on the hour every hour in the main memorial hall. This to honour the great Taiwanese hero Chiang Kai Shek whose seated statue dominates the hall. About ten minutes before the ceremony the crowd was asked to step behind a roped off area to allow space for the incoming guardsman. Tip: Choose your... More
