Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (中正纪念堂), Taipei, Taiwan

I am in so much trouble, there are still so many backlog posts for my Taiwan trip and I am traveling to Hanoi on 26 July and Hokkaido in 31 July! We are also planning a Tioman trip in September! Haha. Our friends are teasing us and asking if we are changing our job to full time traveler and how I wished that’s true.

Back to sharing on our Taiwan trip! We decided to wake up early one morning to visit Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall since our hotel  (Hotel 73) in Taipei is only 5 minutes walk away!

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (中正纪念堂) is a famous monument, landmark and tourist attraction erected in memory of Chiang Kai-shek, former President of the Republic of China. It is open and free entrance to public between 9am to 6pm.

We decided to head there before 9am to witness the grand opening of the bronze door and the entrance of the guard and guard changing performance. The usual guard changing happens every hour but the opening is a performance not to be missed!

After watching the opening performance and taking the obligatory picture with Mr Chiang, we headed down to their art and history exhibition hall which is also free and open to public!
