Taiwan 2015: National Theatre & Concert Hall and Chiang Kai-ShekMemorial HallSunday, August 02, 2015
This is the final installment of my Taiwan 2015 adventures. *tears* My mother joined me during my last 3 days in the Heart of Asia. I toured her around Taipei, mostly to the places I’ve already been to. At that time, the only place left on my checklist was Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall.
How to Get to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall:
From Taipei Main Station > Choose Tamsui-Xinyi line (Red line) to Xiangshan
From Ximen Station > Choose Songshan-Xindian Line (Green line) to Xindian > Go down at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall Station > Take Exit 5
Sitting in the middle is the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. Chiang Kai-Shek was the head of the Nationalist government of China and upon exile, became the head of the Chinese Nationalist government in Taiwan.
Inside, there is a statue of Chiang Kai-Shek, which is guarded by two immobile persons. You may watch the guard turnover ceremony which happens every hour and takes about 15 minutes.
If you’re interested in learning more about the history of Chiang Kai-Shek, there are different exhibitions located on the lower floors, dedicated to that – including his wax figure.
