HD tour of the National Palace Museum

Regarded as the best collection of Chinese art and antiques in the world, the exhibits of the National Palace Museum in Taipei were brought to Taiwan by the Koumintang forces in 1949, when other ancient treasures in mainland China were suffering the ravages of the Cultural Revolution. The collection in Taipei remained intact, and any visit to Taipei should make time to explore the museum halls and the nearly 700,000 pieces in the collection, which covers the entire 5,000 year history of China. Highlights include some exquisite paintings from the Sung dynasty, jade carvings, painted ceramics, bronze ornaments, rare books and samples of calligraphy.
