A large square that has character and if you need to get out from your hotel in the old sector of town it is a pleasant relief. Flew a kite here and it made me feel like we had gone back in time! The new area and square is by far nicer but if you are looking for a taste... More

This is also the same as the August 1st Nanchang Uprising Monument. It is the second largest square in China, after Tiananmen.

This was one of the first places i visited when I first got to Nanchang. I was actually at the walmart opposite when I noticed all the kites in the sky. Crossing the road and spending time with the locals at the square was very heart warming to see kids with their parents flying kites and playing. The Bayi square... More

Head to BaYi square and you'll see the heart of Nanchang. The monument is a good place to see lots of people, fly a kite, and go shopping. Also, it's the second largest square in China behind TianAn'Men, so check it out!

Good place to visit as it is located near the city lake and the main shopping area. You can also go there to fly your kite :)

81square is where u can get a Starbucks. I think it might be the only Starbucks around this area. Sightseeing is quite boring although it's a histrial landmark of Chinese revolution. It's actually just a big square with many shopping mall around it.

If you haven't studied this by yourself it will be nothing but a huge open space. That in itself is impressive so I can't say this is unimportant. Indeed it is important to the PLA and the Long March and that is just the thing that is strange. There's nothing to make you feel like this is a big deal... More
