This place is under construction when I visited last November and that time it was raining. Good place to go when you are first time here. You can take photos and sit and relax. Nice place to meet friends to hang around in Taipei.

The memorial is breathtaking and is very special. It made me appreciate Taiwan's history more and it wanted me to find out more about Chiang Kai-Shek. This is a must-see when visiting Taipei.
