This place is a great place to go to if you are interested in Taiwan’s history, want to enjoy a peaceful stroll through an Asian garden, hoping to buy great souvenirs, want some great photos, or simply wanting to get out and do something. Inside the memorial building there is a wonderful museum. If you want to buy some souvenirs, there are a variety of stores inside. Be sure not to miss the changing of the guard in front of the statue of Chiang Kai-shek; this happens on the hour, every hour. When you are finished here, be sure to take a stroll through the gardens. If you are here at sunset, do not miss the taking down of the flag in the center courtyard. This is truly a beautiful and cultural experience.
