According to the Lonely Planet this should be a terrible place, but I liked it. Yes it is very big, but the room of the 'square', and the beautifull music and concert hall on the same square makes it a very interesting spot in our view. But tastes differ of course!

It is a Memorial Hall For Chiang Chung-Ching, a great leader and the former president for Republic of China. The hall can see the solider performance every hour and the history information, materials inside the Hall

The memorial area is composed of a plaza with a number of buildings surrounding the plaza including a hall commemorating the great man himself. You can either walk up the stairs to the great hall or go around to the side and take an elevator up. The hall has a very large statue of Chiang Kai-Shek and the museum is... More

We loved walking the grounds of Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. They are beautiful and very well manicured. Nice to find a bit of shade during the blazing hot summer! The Memorial Hall itself is very informative. All the sinage is in both Chinese and English. It's a very big complex; so prepare to spend some time walking through everything or... More

Try to come at the top of the hour during the day for the changing of the guards ceremony. Its a bit of a hike up the stairs but worthwhile.

The monuments and site is ok. At every hour there is the change of guard parade, worth watching, now at level 1 there is a art gallery and photo display of the historical event in Chiang Kai Shek's life. This is worth visiting. You can take a lift down to level 1 after watch the guard change parade. Quite easy... More

自由広場, literally "Freedom Plaza" or some such, is a marvelous place. Flanked on two sides by a museum and opera house in traditional Chinese style, the plaza is a huge expanse that resembles similar sites on the mainland. This one is dedicated to Chiang Kai-Shek. If you are native Taiwanese, he is probably not the first thing that comes to... More
