Description - What to expect

Drive past the Presidential Office, a baroque-style building, built in the 1910s. Your first stop is the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, an impressive monument in memory of 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.



Next to your Taipei City Tour, visit Marty's Shrine, an excellent example of classical Ming dynasty architecture, dedicated to the fallen heroes of China's wars. There is an hourly changing of the guard ceremony at the entrance which attracts the interest of many people.



Continue your Taipei city tour with a 1-hour visit to the National Palace Museum, one of the most-visited museums in the world. This museum houses nearly 700,000 pieces of ancient Chinese artworks over multiple dynasties. Besides the permanent exhibits, there are temporary exhibits from time to time. Among the most popular artifacts are the Jadeite Cabbage and Meat-Shaped Stone, both always attracting large crowds.



Stop by Grand Hotel Taipei, another historical landmark, built in the 1950s, to cater to foreign guests and host state banquets. This 5-star hotel contains numerous art decor, including wall panels, paintings, and carvings.



The last stop is Xingtian Temple, a popular Taoist temple established in the 1960s. This temple is devoted to Guan Yu – God of Justice and the locals come here to pray for jobs and do Siu-Kiann (a traditional religious rite) to get rid of bad luck or seek peace of mind.
