Chiang Kai-Shek Photo Shoot with Kids

Found this cute post card of Doraemon at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial while browsing in the Ximen shopping district in Taipei. 

My little ones love Doraemon and this was a perfect enticement for them to visit the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial. They thought it was cool Doraemon had been there and wondered if they would see him on their visit to the same building.

It was a day that was not too hot, so we had time to take photos, walk around, admire the architecture, see the changing of the guard, check out the museum, eat snacks and search for Doraemon (who, by the way, was strangely nowhere in sight). 

Heading to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial with children is a great opportunity to talk history, enjoy the outdoors and to have quality family time. 

For those with strollers or wheel chairs there is an elevator, so you can journey to the top of the monument (where the enormous statue is and the changing of the guard occurs, apparently every hour). Otherwise, you can choose to climb the stairs to the top.
