Taipei (Part 1)

If one has visited Soong Ching Ling’s residence in Shanghai (and admired its intimate back garden), the official residence of Chiang Kai Shek and Soong Mei Ling in Taipei, Taiwan is equally worth a visit.

It is set inside a park; a mere 5 min walk from my hotel Renaissance @ Shilin.

One can see the living room, dining room, bedroom, and official quarters of the couple.

Renaissance Shilin is also a 15 min walk to the famous Shilin night market and a 20 drive to the Palace Museum. It is thus the hotel to stay in if one is keen to visit these 3 places.
