Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos.

飛行機のトラブルで国慶節当日のイベントには間に合わず、翌日、雰囲気だけでも味わいたくて寄りました。 周辺の観光地は何度か行っていたものの、こちらは初めて。 前日のイベントの片付けが盛んに行われていましたが、国旗の飾り付けが残っていて撮影出来ました。 あとから、ここの撮影はとても厳しく制限されていることを知りました。 訪問なさる方はご注意ください。 more »Due to the trouble of the airplane, I couldn't make it to the event on the day of the National Day, and the next day, I wanted to taste the atmosphere alone. I've been to some tourist spots in the area, but this is my first time here. The previous day's event was well cleaned up, but the decoration of the national flag remained and I was able to take a picture. Later, I learned that the shooting here is very strictly restricted. Please be careful if you visit.
