Head south to adore the iconic Taipei 101 Building – one of the highest skyscrapers in the world! Get your camera ready to snap a lot of good shots of its majestic exterior façade. This 106-floor building, incorporating elements of both modern and traditional Chinese styles, will leave you in awe.
Go through the presidential building on your way to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, which has become a symbol of Taiwan due to its enormous white main hall and octagonal blue pagoda-style roof. Stroll through exhibits on Chiang’s life and political career to understand why Taiwanese have so much respect for their first President. If time allows, watch the change of the guard ceremony in front of the memorial.
