the entrance of this palace is located some distance away from the subway station... actually they can set up the entrance along the road when you exit the subway but you need to walk for 15mins to reach... priced at 80rmb for the entrance fee but is worth to understand how the last emperor puyi was manipulated by the japanese,...

If you have watched the movie "Thd Last Emperor", you will appreciate this attraction better. From an emperor to an ordinary citizen, Puyi life is more than the movie.

I'm glad I visited the puppet palace, but there are nothing special about it. It's not even old compare the forbidden city etc. and it cost almost as much as the forbidden city in Beijing, and it's more expensive then the summer palace in Beijing. A must see, but don't hold your breath....if you watch the movie.....the last emperor then... More

Really interesting to see something I have learned about, and taught about for years... from a different perspective. The interactive guide was good, as I do not speak Chinese... though, it did require standing still and listening carefully. Some areas were run down, and some were too busy, but really interesting nonetheless.

Changchun doesn't have a lot of attractions but this is the best. It's kind of difficult to get here by yourself (I tried the bus -nº 247 in case it could be useful to someone- and I had to cross a huge a crowdy street market). Even though there are some signs in English most of it is in Chinese... More

Very interesting! It's a steep price per person for 80 RB per head. It could use some reviews on the price but still and excellent viewing.

Take a guide with you to learn more about the reign of Emperor Puyi. Very interesting to learn about this era in China.

An interesting place to visit. I have seen the 'Last Emperor' movie quite some time ago and forgot about the story. It is interesting to see the place where the puppet emperor was installed by the japanese imperial forces, but the great thing about visiting here is that it makes the extreme unhappiness of the emperor, his wife and his...

Built by the Japanese to house the Emperor Pu Yi, it resembles more of a military barracks from the 1940's. Although some of the gardens around the main house are beautifully kept, it still feels institutional and just made me feel uncomfortable. The main house with the waxwork figures were quite well done. I did like the trek down into... More
