If you can only spend a day in Nanjing, you must visit here. It has great shopping areas for tourist, everywhere is well maintained, the services are good, there is alot to see and there is ample variety of local and international food. The clean air is also great especially since it is so near the city. Even though i... More

This my first trip to Nanjing and I was so glad to have included this attraction. I loved the scenic walk from the bottom of the mountain to the top. At the top was the mausoleum and the views were amazing, even on a rainy day! Had the weather been nice and dry, I could have spent another hour or... More

The places is very well organized (signa, etc). Very impressive park and monument. We encountered heavy rain so were unable to fullt appreciate the place, but it was still very impressive. Albeit the rain, the place was very crowded.

The place is fairly clean and interesting if you are into the modern history of China. It was nice to walk around the area and learn about how Nanjing was the capital before retreat of the Nationalists. Since Nanjing is very hot and humid in the summer, so try not to visit during the dead summer months, it can be... More

I visited this during the Dragon Boat Festival and it was very crowded but still enjoyable. Lots of walking but most of it was a slight incline. Get an audio tour to get a deeper understanding of the place.

A very interesting place in the middle of purple mountains for Sun Yatsen, the great person for Chinese populations. I do not know much about the history but I know that he was a great leader who developed China.

To me this was a very special experience. It was my first time in China, and I didn't know much about Chinese history. This place feels very special. The views are amazing, the architecture is so smart - from the bottom you can only see the stairs, but from the top you can only see the platforms. The view gets... More

Quite fun, we went to his tomb......but we couldn't go and see the body. That part was fun but took a lot of effort to complete. We visited with a group of friends but it was very adventurous because it was raining.
