interesting and well maintained place. Nice gardens during the summer, a bit bleak in the winter, but overall worth a visit.

It used to have a driveway with some interesting shops on it but these are all gone. The grounds are kept up but for some reason they hav opened a horseback riding circle on the site where you can pay to ride horses. How does this have to do with the palace? They also opened up another anti Japanese museum... More

This place is, for sure, unbelievable. All rooms from the "Puppet" emperor are conserved, the whole place has several historic references... A must see to anyone interested in History. Was there in 2009.

This is a important part of Chinese history cross over Qing Dynasty, Republic and then Communist China. This puppet emperor was controlled by Japanese government when they invaded China. Really not much real historical stuff left except a well maintained small palace, yet the story and history still bring me back to image what it like in those days. Even... More

This building is a sad reminder and remnant of the last Qing emperor's life and how he was manipulated by the invading Japanese. Puyi's life is laid out in photos, and you can walk around the rooms in his "palace." The rooms are sadly falling into some disrepair. We took a guided audio tour through the buildings. Sometimes it was... More

The subway is also an option from the Railway Station. The entry fee is 80 yuan, and we had difficulty finding the ticket office, which... More

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.
