First we will pass by the Presidential Office Building. This beautiful building houses the office of the president and was build during the period of the Japanese in Taiwan. After the bombing during World War II it has undergone a reconstruction.
Our second stop will be made at the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. This large building was built in memory of the former president of the ROC, Mr. Chiang Kai-shek.
