Caught the subway there. Had a nice couple of hours wandering around. An interesting photo display on China's history with English captions. Couple of pretty ponds. Our young kids enjoyed playing amongst the rock gardens otherwise they were mostly bored. Entry cost is 40rmb or free with the park card and for children. Can have lunch at 1920 area or... More

Really enjoyed this landmark - the rooms are as they were at the foundation of the Republic of China and also the older emperor's throne rooms and gardens. We had so much fun at the shops and the photo studio too.

This isn't really a luxurious palace (as in it's not plated with gold or platinum or whatever) but it still holds great historical value. And I emphasize 'historical' because history is the main part of this attraction (in other words, if you don't at least have a general idea of the history, you will not really understand much of anything)...

Long walk and can spend all day there - some food can be bought - but bring your own. This is great for pictures, but can not use the camera inside some of the buildings. There is no short-cut out of the park - lots of walking. Nice place. (I do not remember dates - I think it was in... More

Terrific gardens, spectacular when the plum blossoms are in bloom. Otherwise just mysterious nooks and crannies, and photos of puh bah of the past. Easy to access, on Metro Line 2, Daqinggong stop. Just a block from the Nanjing Library and a major expat supermarket, Carrefour.

Although it was difficult to make much progress through the grounds and buildings of the Palace, due to Spring Festival crowds, this was an interesting place for me as the Palace contained so much historical material from the early days of the changes that took place in China from the 1920s. It's best to visit on a less crowded day... More

Huge place that you may need spend half a day. Entry fee is cny40 per person. The ticket is a postcard with 80cent stamp. Nice place to visit but lack of English wording.

This is where the Nationalist government of China held office before they were forced to flee to Taiwan after losing the Chinese Civil War. It's a nice, big place where you can see the office of Chiang Kai Shek and others. Also, you can see where government officials greeting foreign visitors and held state dinners. It's a nice walking tour... More

I didn't imagine that such place could be so nice. The gardens are amazing, calmed and very good to spend an afternoon there. The high number of rooms to visit, the architechture and the buildings in general are excellent... it worths the 40 RMB of entrance!
