Chien Tan Overseas Youth Activity Center 劍潭海外青年活動中心
The Conference was held at the Chien Tan Overseas Youth Activity Center in Taipei, which is opposite to the landmark Grand Hotel. There are two blocks of buildings with classrooms and lecture rooms for seminars and workshops, and a block for hostel services. K and I shared a two-bed room for Taiwan $2700 per evening. Contrary to our expectation, there are no facilities for sports but buffet breakfast is good with Chinese and western food.
There are two dining halls and one restaurant for special guests. On the evening of 11 Nov, we saw heavy presence of police guarding the entrance of the restaurant- 月桂㕔. And two bodyguards with their suits hiding something like guns at the back. We were told that President Ma Yin Jiao came to dinner at this particular restaurant.
This is a simple and modest hostel but accommodating important people and great events.
