    Educational and air conditioned


    I think most people think of the Chiang Kai Shek memorial when they think of Taipei. And compared to the CKS it is must less grandeous and far less assuming. But it does have a nice small garden on the grounds that also provides lovely views of the Taipei 101. Also does have an exhibition hall that provides a bit of background (and if you really are interested in history then you can do further research) in to Taiwan and some of its 'founding fathers'. It really helped my husband who is not Taiwanese and knew really very little of Taiwans history and even for me (being from Taiwan) filled in some tidbit facts. I believe you can also see the changing of the guards at the it here especially if you are coming in the summer, you'll be happy for the air conditioning. This memorial is right on the blue line MRT and what is great is that right afterwards you can just walk towards the Taipei 101 or towards the shopping/SOGO area. So fulfill your history and shopping in one afternoon.

    Memorial to founder of Chinese democracy and first president. Worth to visit if you are interested in modern history.

    Propaganda style museum


    Not knowing a lot about the great man Sun Yat Sen beforehand, it was not very easy to get a good picture of him and his legacy from visiting the small museum located within the memorial hall as the exhibition assumes a lot more background knowledge and does a good job presenting propaganda. Without knowing anything about Sun Yat Sen it was very clear that the image presented was a very unnuanced one (see text in photos below for some examples). Personally, I find these types of museum very entertaining :) The changing of the guards was quite something.

    Changing of the Guard


    This is an interesting site to contemplate Taiwan's recent history. If possible, try to catch the changing of the guard. It was not too crowded when we were there mid-day.

    Went here for the Taipei 101 background


    I just went here for the photo with the Taipei 101 in the background. There is park for people to rest. The soon to be completed Taipei Stadium is on the opposite side of this building.
