Go deep inside the history to find charming blossom

Former Residence of Soong Ching Ling is available from 9:00 to 17:30, I came here when it was 9:00 and finished my visit at 10:30, so visitors usually have ample time to visit. It's really convenient to get here since Beijing's subway covered nearly everywhere in Beijing, and we only needs to walk a few steps towards this attraction.

The point which attracts me most is Soong's exhibition that shown in this residence, it talked about her whole life through that dangerous era.

At early age, she went to American to study abroad. Although she was always trying to contribute in Chinese Renaissance, she got very less chance. However, she soon went to Tokyo and became Sun Yat-sen’s assistant. In my opinion, to a great extent, the love between Soong and Sun depends on their firm belief in revolution. When she was still in middle age, her husband died, so she needed to burden all the responsibility.

It’s really tough for a young woman without husband or family’s help to do it, but she never complain and escape. Finally, she witness the born of new China!

I think all of us can learn something from this respectable woman, when our country is in danger, what can we do and what should we do, Soong had her own answer. Though the weather was bad, though that period of time was full of darkness, she could still let her heart bloom.

So in this warm season, go to the former residence of Soong Ching Ling to see flowers plant in the land and blossom inside Soong’s heart.

What’s more, Soong’s residence is really near to the South Luogu Lane, foreign visitors always willing to buy special Chinese staffs and souvenir in it!

Beautiful grounds
Oct 2017 • Solo
The gardens of this former residence is beautiful, very tranquil and good for photo shots. She used to keep doves and you can see them at the back of the residence. A very peaceful place for a stroll which you can make a stop as you visit the houhai area.

A Great Insight
Oct 2016 • Couples
Knowing little of Soong Ching Ling before this visit I found the information on her available here was plentiful, interesting and very educational. The actual house reflects how she lived very well and the grounds are wonderful. Not only did I learn about her here but there was plenty of details about Chinese history as well.

Lakeside residence
Mar 2017 • Family
Located in the Shichaihai area , this lakeside residence includes a museum, lovely gardens and a courtyard. The museum details the life of Soong Ching Ling until her death in 1981. There are many paintings, momentos and exhibits on display here. There are not many visitors and it was a nice peaceful visit and we gained some insight of the Soong family. The entrance fee is RMB20.

Quaint residence
Oct 2016 • Solo
It was not a planned visit, but I came across this place while wandering in the hutong area. This residence has a garden, courtyard and a 2-storey museum. It was peaceful here as it wasn’t a major tourist attraction. There are many paintings and exhibits inside the museum to give a glimpse of the life of Soong Ching Ling, wife of San Yat-Sen. One hour is sufficient to explore the various rooms and halls in this residence.

under renovation - Mar 21 - May 21
May 2016 • Solo
In the Houhai lake area. The East side of the residence is under renovation from Mar 21 to May 21, and you must enter on the western gate. Only access to the museum and the former residence is available. No access to garden. The museum has detailed the life Soong Ching Ling from childhood to her final days. The English descriptions are very good. Very interesting to read the strength and spirit of this woman. She and her sisters had great influence in China. In the former residence, I was greeted by a young female docent who offered a tour of the home. She spoke English not confidently, but well enough. Of the sites I have been too, I have never been offered a free docent tour. It was appreciated. I give a lower rating because the garden and eastern side of the residence was unavailable due to renovation.

Gate fee is 20 RMB

A historic mansion in a peaceful garden.
Mar 2016
This mansion is situated in the hutong district, by the lake and combines historic buildings, rooms and furniture, as well as a charming garden and a small but very interesting memorial museum. A must if you are interested in the Revolution.
