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.
The Tallest Skyscraper in Taiwan: Taipei 101
When you overlook the low-rise city landscape of Taipei, you’ll realize that it’s worth waiting in line to get a God’s-eye-view of the city. The elevator in 101 rockets you up to the 89th floor in only 37 seconds, where you can sit atop the pride and joy of architecture in Taiwan.
This temple honors one of the greatest philosophers and teachers of all time, Confucius, as well as other philosophers. Confucius’ teachings and philosophy have deeply influenced the Chinese thought and life in almost every way.
