Look about chiang kaisek or Chinese history in internet before the visit, there is very few information in english. Visit took 1h30 (3 to 5 different buildings) and cost 120 yan. The location around is touristic ( chinese tourists) with different bars and shops. You can walk along the river for some kilometers. Ticket office is not on the building... More

All in all not too much to see unless you like reproduced blured photos of the family members of Chiang Kai Shek. Many of the buildings were poorly maintained and the museum lacked interesting items, those i did have lacked descriptions either in Chinese or in English. The room where they claim Chiang was born ( bed included ) was... More

I have been a fan of Chiang Kai-shek for many years and really enjoyed visiting his ancestral home. Evidently this is the home that his family lived in for quite some time in the past. The many buildings in the compound give you an idea of what his young years were like and the relative prominence of his family in... More

Tried to review this site last September but Trip Advisor could not locate it, happy to see it is now located. I like museum/houses this one is well set out and full of lots of great items, from pictures of Chiang's childhood through to his association with mao and more, many military artefacts and historical items. Much of it is... More

In authentic to period of Chiang Kai-shek's birth. Idealized 1930s and 40s recreations by Chiang when he was in power and post-1995 PRC recreations to support the outreach to Taiwan. But -- and see my other review of Xuedou Mountain Resort -- some of that is spectacular and the Miaogaoshan Villa there is worth seeing, especially if your know Chinese... More

It is a special place in this small village to visit with an impressive history, many Chinese people come here to pay a visit, the mountain area around the village is fantastic, and Chiang Kai-shek build a temple in the mountains in the years before he escaped to Taiwan.

The most interesting thing about the place is the positive treatment given General Chiang. I expected them to treat him harshly but it was not at all negative. The village was picturesque but you do not need to buy the Chiang ticket to see it.
