Known for its rose garden there are other areas to visit. There is a chinese and japanese garden, a large pond and a conservatory that has lovely plants but also bright, very fake animals hidden among the foliage.

This a big park with different attractions from the actual residence(with a separate entrance fee), flower gardens, temples and some fountains. A lot of locals goes to this place so it tends to be crowded most of the time.

Nice, pretty, well maintained park/garden from former residence of late Republic of China President Chiang Kai-shek. But not a must to see. I just passed from Shilin metro station on my way walking to National palace museum (normally it would be advised to take the bus to museum).

Not much interested as expected. A bit boring unless you are really interested in the Taiwan history. The garden is not well organized well planted enough.

If you love good entertainment & great food, this is the place to visit. For a few more laughs, don't forget to visit the animals. Bert the cow, has a hidden talent, but she doesn't mind showing people. Clover; the Pot bellied pig is cute as a button. Have fun ladies!!

The home was interesting, and surely a contrast with the Pres. Palace in Saigon (now Reunification Palace). Saigon was modern architecture; CKS a more traditional home. Saigon had a lawn; CKS a park with neatly trimmed bushes, numerous flowers and a pleasure for the eye.

There's nothing much to see there. Flowers are pretty sparse and just a few pavilions. If you are in the area and just want a walk through it's ok to go, but I would not make a special trip there.
