Exploring Daxi District: Lee Teng-Fang Ancient Mansion, Lake Cihu and the Garden of Generalissimos

Daxi was once an important hub for trading indigo and tea, but is now best known for several very fine old streets and as the final resting place of former ROC President Chiang Kai-shek. Our first stop on this bus tour is Lee Teng-Fang Ancient Mansion, built between 1860-1864. It is one of Daxi's most important historic relics and one of the best examples of an ancient Hakka residence in Taiwan. From there we will go to Cihu, where Kai-shek and his son Chiang Ching-kuo lay in state in a pair of impressive mausoleums connected by a 1.8 km walkway. Next we will visit the Cihu Memorial Statue Park. Nicknamed the Garden of Generalissimos, this grassy park is studded with several hundred busts and statues of the late CKS. We will finish with a stroll around the quaint and historic Daxi old town. Bring water, a packed lunch and sun/rain protection.
