Taiwan opens Chiang Kai-shek residence for tourists
Published on Jan 4, 2011
The main part of Shilin, the official residence of Taiwan’s former leader Chiang Kai-shek, opened to visitors in Taipei on Sunday. The residence, a western-style townhouse, had undergone a two-year renovation renovated before opening to the public. Part of the building has been opened as an attraction since 1996, but this is the first time tourists have been able to view the main living areas. It will be open free-of-charge to visitors from Tuesday to Sunday each week.
