The stunning red brick-white composition of this 5-floor edifice is a real standout that is just off the southwestern end of a park where the most important government ministries are located. It fronts an enormous plaza that is the site of colorful celebrations on October...More

Advice: Do not take photos near the Presidential palace from the pedestrian walk. If you take photos, the security guards will ask you to stop immediately. There is no "no photo" sign displayed anywhere. Nevertheless, it seems that taking photos is prohibited in that area....More

It is a nice building, with different architecture from the surrounding. Apart from seeing and taking photo, there is nothing much to do.

It was great to have a chance to visit Presidential Office Building during its opening for celebrating its 100th years. If you are going to Taipei in these days, make sure you reserve few hours (or more) for the visit.

Well guarded by what appeared a myriad of uniformed volunteer, it did not appear possible to visit on a Sunday afternoon. The building is quite impressive from the outside and with a large square toward the peace memorial park
