Map of Grand Hotel ( Conference Venue )
 

The Grand Hotel, high atop Taipei's Yuan Shan (Round Hill), has long enjoyed an international reputation as one of the world's finest hotels. It combines the modern techniques of Western construction with the grace and elegance of the Orient. The international airport is only 45 minutes away.

Taipei's majestic Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall is one of Taipei's most popular gathering places. The memorial hall's enormous marble edifice towers over landscaped gardens, graceful pavilions, and placid ponds. It contains a bronze statue of the late President, and the rooms underneath hold an exhibition of the President's life. Soldiers on guard at the Memorial are changed every hour, which is a favorite sight for tourists. The memorial hall is also home to the National Theater and Concert Hall.

The National Palace Museum houses the world's largest assemblage of Chinese art treasures, one which spans China's nearly 5,000-year history. Most of the museum's 620,000 art objects were part of the Chinese imperial collection, which began over 1,000 years ago in the early Sung dynasty.
