22 Dec 2014 - Taiwan Trip Day 9: Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (国父纪念馆)

As our flight today is in the late afternoon, we still got sometimes to visit nearby attraction.  We decided to check out of our hotel first so that we do not have to rush back later.  We left our luggage at the hotel reception.

We took MRT from Ximen station to Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall station.  That's right, we were going to visit Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall.
There is a public-use library that houses 1.4 millions books in the well maintained ground.
At the big open ground outside the Memorial Hall, we can see Taipei 101 very clearly.
The Memorial Hall is dedicated to Dr Sun Yat-Sen, father of modern China.
 Inside the Memorial Hall contains a 19-foot bronze statue made in the image of Sun Yat-Sen.
Every hour, there is a change of guard ceremony, in which tourists are welcomed to gather around to watch the entire process.
There is also a small museum within the complex with items related to the founding of The Republic of China and Sun Yat-Sen himself.
Across the road of the Memorial Hall seems to be a major construction.  There is a board saying Taipei Dome (台北大巨蛋).  After doing some research on the internet, this will be a Sports Hub that will go into operation by 2016.
We then took the MRT back to Ximending to have our lunch.  I wanted to try out the Master Hong (洪师傅) beef noodle today.  We have passed by the shop multiple times but did not have the chance to eat.
It's one of the best beef noodle that I've eaten so far.
After lunch, we went back to the hotel to collect our luggage.  潘先生 was already there waiting for us.  He will be sending us to Taoyuan Airport to catch our flight.

Farewell Taiwan!  We will be back SOON!
