The gate of the Presidential Palace is western style with meters-long guard stations in two sides. While the second gate is typical Chinese style. Through the gate there is a long corridor, along which are hall, foreign guests reception room, lobby of president and some offices. At the end of the Palace is a 5-store building called “Zichao Building” which got the name by another name of Hushen, the chairman of National Government at that time. There are altogether 1189 rooms, halls, towers, pavilions and attics in the palace, but they can be a whole because the corridors connect these buildings. So you can pass through every building without umbrella in the rainy day.
