Everything in this house is left just as it was in the days of Chiang Kai-Shek, there is even a cut-out of the couple in the living room to make it more real. I enjoy these locations that give you the impression you just stepped...More

This building began as an agricultural research center during Taiwan’s Japanese colonial period, but was later converted to the private residence of former President Chiang kai Shek. It is a lovely building, rather understated by presidential standards, but that’s probably what makes it so appealing....More

This somehow austere house was the official residence of Chiang Kai-shek. Admission only costs 100 NTD and is fully worth it. The place is quite small but offers a glimpse of the life of the former Chinese leader. Beware of the opening hours.

Chiang kai shek's residence - you can spend 1 hour there if you're a history buff. Helps if you can read mandarin

Everything was being recorded and kept nicely. They even provide you an audio machine (looked like walkie-talkie) so you could understand the building better. Nice rose garden and small little church. Walked slowly and feel the old time era! Ticket needed to visit the mansion.

This is purely for adults and those who are interested in history. It gives us a glimpse into the everyday live of the man who serve in the military and politics throughout his life. No photographs can be taken inside.
