Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall was built to commemorate late 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. On two sides of the large plaza in front of the memorial hall are the National Theater and the National Concert Hall, two great venues for the performing arts regularly featuring famous artists from Taiwan and abroad.

Marty's Shrine

This is 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 many people find interesting.

National Palace Museum

Often named as one of the four greatest museums in the world, the National Palace Museum not only preserves century-old art and culture but also engages in cultural exchange with foreign museums to become a modern and "fashionable" museum. The museum collection consists of more than 600,000 court treasures from the Song, Yuan, Ming, and Qing Dynasties. Among the most popular artifacts are the Jadeite Cabbage and Meat-Shaped Stone, both always drawing large crowds.

Hsing Tian Kong (Xingtian Temple)

There are a lot of traditional Taiwanese temples in Taipei City. Those places represented the centers of people's religious activities. Meticulously designed and built, the faithful believers showed their respects to the Holy Gods, and lots of smoke from incense suffused within those temples.

For our small group of six (three with mobility issues), it was pleasant and enjoyable half-day tour of Taipei. The points of interests presented gave a unique overview of Taipei’s history. The experience was made all the more special by our quite knowledgeable & helpful guide, Felix. His wry sense of humor was nice touch.

This half day tour was the perfect length to visit a lot of the main sights in Taipei. I was amazed at how many spots we saw in such a short period and I learned a lot about Taiwan’s history. The timing was good because we got to see the changing of the guards in two of the locations. I felt that we spent enough time at each place though one could spend hours in the National museum. (The tour included entry to the National Museum as well, which makes it a good deal..) Note that The tour eliminated the visit to the handicraft place, which a few of the older reviews complained about. Highly recommended introduction to Taipei.

Nice quick tour to start the trip to Taipei.

Good way to get an idea of the city and what's in the area. You don't get to spend too much time in any one place but at least have more knowledge of the city so you can go back to places if you have more time during your stay. Tour guide is knowledgeable. They were on time and made it all very easy and enjoyable.
