[ 台北 ] 總統府與台北賓館

[ 台北歷史與政治地帶 ]  The Political Centres of Taipei

The Taiwan Presidential Office and the Taipei Guest House only have open house once in a month. These are two historical places that still have their political significance. The President’s Office is like the White House in terms of function. The Taipei Guest House is… (continue reading…)

年初和最近和朋友去了總統府和台北賓館, 這些地方是國家元首辦公及接待外賓的地方, 所以一般時間都是沒開放給外面參觀的, 像總統府, 每個月只有一天是開放最多空間給大眾參觀, 而台北賓館也是類似那樣, 不過今年慶建國百年, 所以在年初時, 台北賓館有一陣子有個百年外交的特展, 開放…


… 的時間也比較長, 所以那時我們就去看看囉.

… where some foreign heads and guests are greeted. Some parts of it may be open on other days as well but if you want to see the most of it, the Open House day is the day to go.

台北賓館建於 1901 年 (日治時期) , 最早是台灣總督的官邸.
The Taipei Guest House was built by the Japanese government during the Japanese occupation era. It was built in 1901 as the House of the Governor-General of Taiwan under Japanese rule.

現在的台北賓館則是個接待貴賓和辦特別慶祝活動的地方.
It is now used as a venue for state celebrations and reception for important guests.

裡面的許多設計其實很歐式, 有點像在奧地利看到的那些皇宮.
The interior design is pretty European. This kinda reminds me of some palaces I saw in Austria.

一個廳裡配合花博的大宣傳.
The last room before we exited the building.

台北賓館的後花園很漂亮,  除了有歐式的露台及階梯, 還有個日式的茶室和外面的小池塘.
The back garden of the Taipei Guest House is quite pretty (if you cut out all the people on the photo). Other than the European style staircase and exterior of the building, there’s also a Japanese teahouse and a small lake/pond.

後花園景色.
More photos of the back garden.

這間茶室的設計與格調感覺就滿像金瓜石那邊的太子賓館.
The style of this Japanese teahouse is quite similar to the Japanese Prince’s Guest House in Kinkaseiki (Jinguashi).

後面很悠閒的花園, 很棒的下午茶地方. :p
It’d be nice to have afternoon here eh?! :p

一月初的外交展有展出的一些護照和護照章相關的物品.
There was a special exhibit in January that showcased a lot of the old immigration stamps and passports used in the earlier days.

IMG_0098

以前不同人員所使用的護照也有點不同.
In the past, people with different job function (eg. working in the government) have a different kind of passport.

IMG_0097

台灣護照的演化.
The evolution of the Taiwan passport. You see “Taiwan" printed with “Republic of China" on the passport since 2003. I guess some people are still confused with the name. The China we know now and refer to is the “People’s Republic of China". The “Republic of China" is Taiwan.

慶祝建國百年啦!
It’s the 100th year for Taiwan (R.O.C) so there were lots of celebration in the beginning of the year and probably around the end of the year as well.

一月底拜訪的台北賓館.

Taipei, Taiwan.

偶爾會在新聞上看到的地標, 但一直沒機會去, 這次終於剛好和來臺灣玩的友人去看看.
The President’s Office is often seen on the news but I never got around to seeing it. So this time we were lucky that the place was opened to the public on the day so we got to see what it’s like inside.

IMG_0008

一進大門的內部空間, 感覺也很歐式, 有點像博物館.  但這棟建築最早是由日治政府所建. 原為台灣總督府辦公用.
The interior of the “lobby" area near the main entrance. The style is quite similar to some European museums. The Presidential Office was built under Japanese rule. It was the office of the Governor-General of Taiwan. It became the presidential office of the Republic of China in 1950 when the Japanese retreated to Japan and the China KMT government retreated to Taiwan.

總統府裡的接待廳, 這裡面有許多間不同的接待廳.
The President’s Hall – the President receives visiting heads as well as local and foreign guests.

另外一個廳. 有些應該在新聞上也有看到過吧.
Another hall for greeting guests. Probably have seen this one on the news.

IMG_0021

處處都可以和總統副總統拍照.
You can t
ake pics with the president and the vice president here.

IMG_0019

我覺得這扇門看起來很雅.
I think this door looks kinda classy.

IMG_0027

另外在總統府裡的展示廳之一有台灣世界品牌的特展. 像是 ACER, ASUS, D-Link, Giant, 等都有在這邊展出.
There’s another exhibit space in the President’s Office is showcasing Taiwan brands that are known internationally. That includes brands such as Acer, ASUS, D-Link, Giant and many more.

IMG_0024

我們公司的產品也有受邀在這展出喔!
A product from the company I work is also featured here under the medical category.

其他台灣知名的國際品牌產品.

關於外交邦交國..
A map showing the countries that have are the official relationship with Taiwan’s government. You don’t see many of any western or large countries that’s because of the China & Taiwan complication.

一間展示間裡所展出的碗, 裡面是地圖喔!
An exhibit with Japanese style of bowls that have very detailed drawings of cities.

IMG_0035

其實總統府裡可參觀的地方滿多的, 而且還有一些類似博物館的展出, 只不過我們這次比較沒有仔細去看那些展示. 下次再仔細去瞧瞧吧.
If you visit the Presidential Office on the Open House day, you’d see quite a bit of the interior of the building. There were also lots of small exhibit rooms with focus on Taiwan history and the building’s history. If you have time, you can also check those out.
