Touch of Chinese history

Immense park, which can probably best be visited in spring or fall. Lots of things to see and interesting for people interested in some of Chinese history

Nothing much to look at. 3 degrees cold and nice cloudy view from the top , not much of a challenge climbing up. Hardly broke a sweat .

I was there with a friend before a business visit. It is a very intersting place, since you experience both, the Chinese landscape in this area plus an impression about Chinese history.

Beautiful and historical place to visit. You can walk up to the site but we opt and were glad to pay more for the shuttle. After you arrive at the site, there is more climbing to reach the mausoleum. When you arrive at the top, pay your respect to Sun Yatsen and then walk around and take pictures. It is... More

Spent several hours at this site and a full day would be possible as there is much to see. There are several historical sites to visit and not just the Sun Mausoleum and all are worthy of a hour or two. It is a large site so try and take the transport services offered they are not expensive and save... More

Accessed this monument via the overpriced shuttle buses that you need to get around the whole park area. The walk has a wonderful view, both up and down the steps. Unfortunately, you cannot take photos inside. Note that food near the monument is mostly overpriced snacks (that sell out). There may be some little eateries around, but for a better... More

Sun Yates Mausoleum is a trademark for Nanjing as Nanjing being capital for Republic of China and Sun Yates being a president in the past. The view is beautiful on top of a long ramp. There is not a lot of exercise and it has significant meaning to a Nanjing citizen as me. I have been going to Sun Yates... More

It is a big place. And a very good day trip from the city. By weekend there are usually lots of people and I think it is one of the must see places in Nanjing.
