The Taiwanese people's reverence for the first President of the Republic of China and the icon of Chinese Nationalism is very much in evidence in the monumental Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall.
Chiang died in 1975, the hall opened five years later and since then the huge white structure, with its octagonal blue pagoda-style roof, has become a symbol of Taiwan.
You approach through a white ceremonial gateway on a similarly overwhelming scale. Once inside you'll find yourself immersed in Chiang’s life, with relics to bring alive his military and political career, including a slightly eerie dummy of the late president sitting in a recreation of his office.
Very nice half day tour. the guide, Mr. Dan was very good, with a lot of sense of humor.
We enjoyed it very much.
A good short tour of Taipei . Very friendly and helpful guide if you don't know much about Taipei. The change of Guard and Museum very impressive. The guides also able to let us know at what time we would be picked up for other tours we had booked.
Very worthwhile, interesting sights, easy transfers round trip.
The Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is in central Taipei and has its own station on the city’s Mass Rapid Transit system (MRT). The Hall is surrounded by graceful gardens which are a favorite gathering spot for locals.
