Must to see. Within a walk distance from San Yon Hotel. You can take pictures across the opposite side of the road. Good shots in the early morning after a walk.

It is too bad that the public is not allowed entry into the building and you are only allowed to take photos outside the building itself. The best my husband and myself can get is to take photos just opposite the Presidential Office Building itself.

Every city seems to have its own pomp and grandeur. The Presidential Palace is the place in Taipei. Designed and built by Japanese, it has more of an European majestic look, so you will not see Asian archetecture. If you take the MRT red line...More

As a building it is large but doesn't seem overly architecturaly significant What we found fascinating was the provision in the surrounding streets for anti riot fencing, razor wire dispersion and other preventative measures. Not sure what they were specifically there for
