Welcome to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park

Pride of Taipei, the magnificent Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park is a walled complex built in memory of the former Taiwanese President. It contains an impressive pyramid-shaped majestic white monument to Chiang Kai-shek, capped with a blue-tiled roof, as well as the National Concert Hall and National Theatre. All stand inside a lovely park, fronted by a vast plaza where there are often folk performances or other events being held. The Memorial is also the main venue for Taipei's famed Lantern Festival, Shang Yuan, which draws thousands of lantern-carrying revellers to mark the Chinese New Year.

Mandarin is the official language of Taiwan, but Taiwanese is often spoken and English is generally understood.

Taiwan's currency is the New Taiwan Dollar (TWD), which is divided into 100 cents. Foreign currencies and travellers cheques (American Express, Citibank or Thomas Cook) can be exchanged at government-designated banks and hotels. Receipts are given when currency is exchanged, and must be presented in order to exchange unused NT dollars before departure. Major credit cards such as American Express, Master Card, Visa, and Diners Club are accepted. Banks are open Monday to Friday. US dollars are the preferred currency. ATMs are plentiful but not all accept international bank cards.
