  • A big area to chill with your friends, family or pets. The memorial hall is beautiful and good for photos. If you are interested in their history, it's free entry so you can go in and have a look.
  • One of the must-see tourist attractions in Taipei, this memorial to the founding father of the Republic of China occupies a large square with a nice view of Taipei 101. The whole place will only take about 15 minutes to go through - there's a hall with a large statue of Sun Yat-sen, and then a small 'museum' offering details into his life. During the day the place seems to be full of mainland tourists, but in the late afternoon and early evening, young locals come out to practice dance moves - some are very impressive!
  • Great place to know modern China's history and fully understand how it came to be. During New Year's eve, it also provides a great place for people to enjoy the fireworks display from Taipei 101.
  • Watched a theatre show here. Not bad, but not impressive either. Facility is decent.
  • This park was absolutely beautiful and we'll maintained. There are people dancing outside and playing sports. In the centre, there is a wide display of art and history,. I highly recommend coming here, especially if you like nature. It is a very respectful place.
