It's where the government of china ran the country prior to chairmen Mao. I lived across the street from the presidential palace for 5 years and only visited it before I moved back to Canada. I'm glad I did!

When Sen Yet Sen agreed to lead the fledgling Chinese Republic in 1912, they need something worthy of the leader of a country steeped in history and tradition. This is what they came up with and it is stunning given its relative simplicity. Worth a...More

It was very busy because of the China holidays but regular days should be much more bearable. My understanding was that prices were 39RMB to get in and there were options to purchase English guide ear-pieces for non-Chinese speakers. The area is big and can...More

I was surprised to discover that this place is reminiscent of the Forbidden City in Beijing as well as having historical buildings from the 20th century. I was also surprised at how crowded it was, even on a very rainy day in March. We spent...More
