Taiwan Treat: Where the Masses Go

If there is going to be a mass gathering in Taipei,  it ought to be at the Memorial Hall Square. Here is where you'll find the National Concert Hall, the National Theatre and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (中正紀念堂). Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall of course, has been erected in memory of Taiwan's former President, Chiang Kai-shek, the  Chinese political and military leader whose army retreated from Mainland China to Taiwan, where he later became notorious with a period in Taiwan called the White Terror. The place which is located in Zhongzheng District is both a landmark and a tourist attraction and easily accessible using public transport. While there, you'd be lucky like us to bump into a visiting president, Ma Ying-jeou (inset) during which time there would be much pomp and fanfare......
