Get the best out of your trip to Taiwan on this 3-hour tour that will take you to the highlights of Taipei. You’ll start with a quick drive by the Presidential Building, before stopping at the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, an impressive monument that was built in memory of the former Chinese leader. The majestic hall towers over 25 hectares of landscaped gardens, graceful pavilions, and ponds and the square between the buildings is a popular gathering place for festive occasions. Next, you’ll head to the National Revolutionary Martyrs’ Shrine which is dedicated to the fallen soldiers of China. While you’re there, you might want to catch the hourly changing of the guards at the entrance which is done almost like a performance. You’ll also visit the National Palace Museum which houses a vast collection of Chinese art treasure. Most of the art pieces were part of the Chinese imperial collection that was brought to Taiwan for safe-keeping. The collection is too large to be displayed at one time, so while many popular pieces remain on permanent display, other items are rotated regularly, making each visit unique! You’ll also visit some of the many traditional temples in Taipei. Finally, you’ll stop at the Handicraft Center to do some shopping for a gift or souvenir. There are a number of shops selling jewelry, art, furniture, and many other inexpensive mementos.
