  • Historic place. Great to bring the kids and introduce them to one of the great historical figures in Chinese culture. There are also many events taking place here. Check the website to find out. When we were there, they had a painting exhibit of a local painter. Very nice and unexpected.
  • For those interested in Taiwanese history this is a must see. In fact even if you are not interested in history the architecture is a great place to spend some time. Come for the changing of the guard hourly but stay for the vistas and the gardens.
  • Historical with great art exhibition. Great place to learn history very educational. Nice souvenir shop with very helpful staff.
  • National Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is, as its name suggests, here to commemorate the national founding father Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Except for its history-rich story, it is a nice park for city dwellers. Flying Kates are often spotted during the day. People enjoy jogging around the park as well as dog-walking. In the evening, it is also a great spot to take photos of Taipei 101, the most iconic building in Taipei Taiwan, and other buildings around Taipei 101. A lot of tourists like to take pictures here at National Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall.
  • Easy to access, free audio tour guide..favorable to know more about Dr. Sun Yat Sen. There is also guard switching ceremony every one hour for your experience.
