Description

See the best of Taipei on a 4-hour city tour where you will get to see all the important sites of Taiwan's capital. ● Presidential Office (pass by) ● Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall (National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall) ● Martyrs' Shrine ● National Palace Museum ● Grand Hotel Taipei (photo stop)  Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall was built to commemorate late president Chiang Kai-shek. Surrounded by a large Chinese-style park and a huge plaza, the iconic hall has white marble walls and a roof with blue glazed tiles. On the three floors inside, visitors can see a large bronze statue of a sitting Chiang Kai-shek and check out the exhibition area with historic documents, photographs, and films. On two sides of the large plaza in front of the memorial hall are the National Theater and the National Concert Hall, two great venues for the performing arts regularly featuring famous artists from Taiwan and abroad. Marty's Shrine The shrine was built in the 1969, dedicated to the fallen soldiers in civil wars and armed conflicts, to honor their brave spirit. Every year on Youth Day and Armed Forces Day, the president of Taiwan leads the civil and military officials to pay floral tribute to the martyrs. The changing of the guard ceremony is performed hourly from 09:00 to 17:00 every day, which attracts large numbers of tourists from overseas. National Palace Museum Often named as one of the four greatest museums in the world, the National Palace Museum not only preserves century-old art and culture but also engages in cultural exchange with foreign museums to become a modern and 'fashionable' museum. The museum collection consists of more than 600,000 court treasures from the Song, Yuan, Ming, and Qing Dynasties. Among the most popular artifacts are the Jadeite Cabbage and Meat-Shaped Stone, both always drawing large crowds. Grand Hotel Taipei (photo stop) This 5-star hotel is another historical landmark built in the 1950s to cater foreign dignitaries who visited Taipei, and it contains numerous art and decors, including wall panels, paintings and carvings. Presidential Office (pass by) The neo-Renaissance building was built in the 1910s during Japanese colonization, previously served as the office of the Governor-General of Taiwan. Nowadays, the building operates as the seat of political power in Taiwan. With a long history and an iconic facade, it is also a symbolic landmark in Taipei City.
