Taoyuan County: Daxi Old Street, Lake Cihu and the Garden of Generalissimos

 Registration is closed for this event

REGISTRATION FOR THIS TOUR IS CLOSED.

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO VANDALISM WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VISIT THE CKS MAUSOLEUM. WE ARE STILL GOING ON THE TOUR. WILL STILL BE A GREAT DAY OUT! 

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. We start this tour at Lake 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 unusual Garden of Generalissimos, a grassy park studded with several hundred busts and statues of the late CKS. (This is a photo op not to be missed!) We will finish with a stroll around historic Daxi town. Time permitting there are little shops and small cafes where we can take a short break before returning back to Taipei. Wear comfortable shoes; bring a packed lunch, and sun/rain protection as required.
