Quite an interesting place to visit. There isn't actually that much to see at the tomb itself, but the site of the main building in beautiful forest scenery is very nice. The tomb building itself is impressive, too.

A good place to spend a whole day. Be prepared for lots of walking. To get up there you need to board bus #2 which cost RMB2. But is jammed pack and getting back is also another headache. We ended walking down the hill as the wait for the bus is almost eternal. Very disorganised.... typical of things in China...

A huge complex in the nice park, not far from Mausoleum. There are several ways, one with the beasts, the other with generals, still other with mandarins; you better go through all of them on the way to the tomb, as it is very beautiful.

Entered via gate 5 after visiting Meiling Palace. There was a tomb museum near to the gate and the ticket entrance (which was quite hard to find) was just behind it. In sum, you would have to walk further in front and then turn right to make a U turn . the route towards the tomb was actually opposite gate... More

This park which contains the Ming Tomb as well as the Sacred Pathway is stunning. The gardens are maintained to a higher level than any other I've seen in China and are magnificent, with many different garden areas and pavilions to discover. If you walk off the main tracks even in crowded times you can usually find peaceful places to... More

I went to this tomb with a colleague on his first visit to China. Even though it was my third visit, I still find the sight of the final wall and building to be breath-taking. Sadly it was pouring when we visited which detracted slightly from our enjoyment. However, it was a memorable visit and a must-see for anybody visiting... More

This is simply a beautiful area to visit. The walk up the mountain is lovely, and not too bad. The steps seem never-ending, but the view from the top toward Nanjing is worth it. So many things to see- I can't remember how many there were. Walking back down from the top is so pleasant on a warm day- lots... More

Xiaoling Tomb Mausoleum is a historical site. The garden that surrounds the Xiaoling Tomb is large, calm and provides some informations about Ming dynasty (statues, informative stones...). The museum is very rich of relics. There are some restaurants near to the museum and a Jade Shop for accessories and souvenirs. There is also an Art Gallery.

A beautiful place ful of cultural treasures, the stone animal walk and teh tombs are beautiful. A must go destination if you are in Nanjing. Cheap to catch a taxi up there or take the local bus.

The tomb is set in a beautiful park that inspires calm and an appreciation of nature- both at a premium in a bustling city like Nanjing.
