“Great Pictures of Wartime China”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

This mansion contains great pictures depicting the wartime life of Chiang Kai Shek and his wife. As the wartime President of China you see the kind of relative luxury in which he lived.

“Orchid garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

If your ever in Taiwan plan a trip to Chiang Kai shek residents just for the gardens the orchid pavilion is just beautiful I think it was mainly the work of his wife but if you like roses palms and exotics do your self a favour

“Beautiful, peaceful and historically interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

It doesn't take long to escape from the city, 40 minutes on the bus (No. 384 from Nanping, only 12 stops from the start) gets you to this rather beautiful country residence. Set in acres of parkland that is full of wildlife, the residences contain a photographic record of the period when Chiang Kai-shek governed the ROC from Chongqing and masterminded the defeat of the Japanese invaders. On a good day take your time to explore, unwind and enjoy the gardens and indigenous wildlife.

“Chiang Kai Shek's House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

Love the old house. Could be a bit better maintained, but really worth the trip up the mountain from a history perspective.
