Very nice and large square mixing old chinese buildings, modern ones and trees and very well maintained lawns, all in the middle of a very nice and dynamic capital city. The change of guard is interesting and the museum describes a piece of history that is not well known in detail by Europeans. Worth spending a couple of hours.

Personally, visiting this memorial has always been on my list of "must sees." I'm not political, nor am I Taiwanese, but I always admired the spirit behind Chian Kai-Shek's ideology. You do feel the reverence that the Taiwan people have for the man. It's a bit of a magical feeling. This memorial is massive. The 89 (for how many years... More

Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is one of the most iconic places of Taiwan! After the death of Chiang Kai-Shek in 1975 the state decided to build a Memorial to commemorate his memory. It is on the east side of Liberty Square, easily accesible by metro or bus. Don't let anyone to convince you that this Memorial is an architectural masterpiece,... More

Despite your political opinions about the status or history of Taiwan you have to admit that this area, to immortalise the Chinese president who took the Republic government into exile in 1949 is pretty impressive. I had no preconception when I got there and was quite overwhelmed with the scale of it all. The memorial to CKS is very similar... More

Impressive building with beautiful surrounding gardens and gates. The other buildings nearby, The National Theatre and National Concert Hall are also beautiful buildings to admire. Nice respite from the busy city outside the walled area.

This was one of the first places we went to on our recent trip to Taiwan, and it was an impressive introduction to this beautiful city. Exited MRT at Chang Kai Shek and entered the plaza in an area where people were practising Tai Chi. We entered the main hall area and it was impressive. Flanked by the beautiful white... More

Go to see the changing of the guards. It's really cool. They use real Springfield Armory M-1s and chrome bayonets.

Imagine the Lincoln Memorial placed atop a Chinese pyramid with Chiang Kai-Shek sitting in Lincoln's seat and a museum on the first floor which conveniently misses all of the General's many atrocities. That should tell you all you need to know.

An interesting place to visit and you can spend quite a bit of time walking around the grounds let alone the hall. Some excellent gift shops in there as well
