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

Enjoyed the changing of the guards; pretty architecture. Needed a tour guide to help focus on key items - lots of rooms.

The CKS Museum has a lot of memorabilia of Chiang Kai Shek. The museum is open from 0900H - 1800H and is free. A lot of historical things to see for both adults and kids alike. The museum is spread across a few rooms. There is no clear signs as to which room to go to first, which creates a... More

Worth to stop by, at least take a pic or something :) 10 minutes visit is enough though :) Unique thing is, the roof was blue, when you mostly see the roof is red

Very impressive space and buildings when you get out of the MRT. Great air conditioning and dual language signage and information boards. Clean public toilets like everywhere in Taiwan, I mean in buildings. Poor guards had to be wiped with a tissue it was so hot when I went. The changing of the guard was an impressive affair with some... More

The park and square is huge and the buildings around it is magnificent and we took lots of pictures. Lots of space for kids to run around. The CKS memorial hall looks solemn and impressive and the change of guard ceremony is great too.
