A City Landmark not to be Missed: Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall
Standing as the symbol of Kuomintang and Taiwan’s first President Chiang Kai Shek, the massive commemorative monument mirrors the “Clear blue sky, white sun, and a wholly red earth”(青天、白日、滿地紅), which is described in the national anthem, in its architecture. Not only can you enjoy the changing of guards on the hour in the main hall but also visit the National Theater and Concert Hall located nearby.
