A must visit in Nanjing, get the audio guide otherwise you’ll be a bit lost. Bring your passport to get the audio guide. At least 60mins.

It was an old residence in the Ming area than lately used by president Chang Kai Shek. But historically maybe interesting for those who are not familiar with this time. But a wire nice garden.

This palace is a series of buildings and gardens that will take your breath away. Learn about Sun Yat Sen and the Republic of China here, and also the long history of this site, dating back to the Ming Dynasty. Go!

It is one of the most interesting places to visit in Nanjing. This is the resident of the first President of China Dr. Sun Yat Sen. The new republic was declared in 1912 Nanjing being the new capital of China.

The palace is full of historical significance and the curator had included lots of information (in Chinese) on the historical background of the palace. The gardens and small lakes are beautiful and well-kept and are probably one of the highlights of the place. One of...More
