The journey in Taipei city continues with Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall tour. Located in the heart of Taipei, the memorial hall has 250,000 square meters and attracts lots of foreign tourists like me.
Before the tour kick off let’s look back on the course of history, shall we. In 2007, Ah Bian (阿扁) change the name into National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall and the new naming lead to disputes for years.
The name of Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall was restored soon after President Ma Ying-jeou took over on 2008.
It’s real easy to go to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall via public transportation. Take MRT and stop in Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall station and the tourist spot was just 5 minutes walk away.

Some people said the architecture of the memorial hall is kind of resemble the pyramid-like top of Tian Tan in Beijing.
What is the meaning behind the color of Taiwan flag?
The blue, white and red color of the National Flag express the spirit of freedom, equality and brotherhood.
Besides Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, there’s also National Concert Hall and National Theater around this area for international art and music performances.
These three building was considered as one of the important landmark of Taipei City aside from Long Shan Temple.
Visit them when you going to Taiwan for vacation 🙂
