The Grand Hotel opened in May 1952. Madam Chiang Song Mei-Ling, the former President's wife planned and built this place. This was Taipei's first international hotel. Over 2,000 ambassadors from all over the world have stayed at the Grand Hotel.
In 1973, international tourism started to thrive, and this building was reconstructed into a palace-style architecture.
I really enjoyed seeing this beautiful building, and I loved learning about the history. There is so much detail in the ceilings! I made a short dtube video, so you could also explore the insides of the Grand Hotel! Enjoy!
