If you're in the Xinyi District and have time to spare after soaking in all the views of Taipei 101, a 15min walk will take you to National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial. This grand museum complex opened its doors in 1972, and to this day regularly hosts many architecture and art exhibitions. Here you can learn about the life of Sun Yat-Sen, the "𝘍𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘕𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯" featured on the 100元 bill. But let's not fool ourselves, we all know the main attraction here is 📸 the changing of guards ceremony (every o'clock from 9am to 5pm), an impressive display of synchronized movements and rifle techniques. The adjoining Zhongshan Park is also a great place to enjoy seasonal flowerbeds and stroll through a Chinese-scaped pond with pagoda. 📸 The wide vistas offered by the park make it easy to snap great pictures of Taipei 101 Tower. A favourite choice is capturing the reflection of the tower in the pond. 𝗙𝘂𝗻 𝗙𝗮𝗰𝘁. While exiled in Japan, Sun Yat-Sen went by the pseudonym Nakayama (中山). These kanji read in Chinese as 𝘡𝘩𝘰𝘯𝘨𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘯. Streets, parks and schools are dedicated to him all over the world by this name. 🎫: Free
