The photos don't do the place any justice. If you plan to visit Taipei, this is probably a place I would recommend you to go as Sun Yat Sun Memorial Hall is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Taiwan. It's built to dedicate to the "Father of China"- Dr. Sun Yat Sen, lot of historical stories and memories about it.
The massive building 29,464 square metres (7.3 acres) in an open space of 115,000 square metres (28.4 acres) has a performance hall, an exhibition center of about 10,000 square feet, a multimedia theatre, an audio-visual center, lecture halls, and a library with over 300,000 books. Outside the hall, you'll find people gathering for sports and recreations related activities i.e Kite Flying, Roller Skating, Tai Chi, Dancing etc...Life seems to be so simple and happy there.
Beautiful view from the outside
and view from inside the hall.
The heat in Taiwan was killing me, I barely stood outside for more than 15 minutes. After Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall, we joined the locals on their public transport to travel around the city underground. I haven't been taking public transport in Singapore for years but when I'm in other countries, I'm all up for it. It was fun and exciting indeed.
