Went down to the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (Wan Qing Yuan) on 15/05/16. Beautiful grounds, and a very immersive experience about the trials and tribulations the revolutionaries had to go through, to found Modern China. I was pleasantly surprised to see that explanations were provided in English, and Chinese. Guided tours are also available. The Memorial Hall houses... More

I always make a point to visit this memorable place whenever I visit Singapore. It is not terribly well known . But, it was the meeting place where Dr. Sun , Father of the Republic of China and his great advisors met to plan for the uprisings that overthrown the Ching kingship. There were many remarks made by previous visitors,... More

Were there on 22 Nov after their reopening day. The bungalow had been renovated. There's a lift serving the 2 storey building making it very disable friendly. The display and information on the history of Sun Yat Sen and his contemporary were very interesting. Found the architect plan dd 1900 and still well preserved . Would need about at least... More

The Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall is located in the Balestier district of Singapore, which is just outside (but still nearby) the city centre (Orchard-Marina Bay area), and where you can still find some architecture that is representative of the good ol’ 60s-80s Singapore. Consequently, when I visited it today, I half expected to find an old, decrepit place... More

So this place is extremely well-done. When I came there was such a friendly guy who asked me to join the free guided tour. His name was Raymond and a bought a potentially dry topic very interesting. It started with the people of the era, so I was starting to yawn but he brought in anecdotal stories and that made... More

If you are interested in Chinese History this is a must. We delayed our visit by several hours to attend the guided tour . Australian lady named Merry did a great job of interpreting exhibits so that we got the most from our visit.

I have always admired Dr Sun Yat Sen, the person who dared to initialise and carry out a revolution to overthrow the Qing Dynasty ruling China for more than 100 years. Not a small feat. For SG 50, a friend informed there was a launch bringing in more personal items belonging to Dr Sun's family members and entry was free,... More

As we were staying at the nearby Ramada I downloaded the Heritage Trail app for the Balestier Road area and discovered this beautifully restored building and museum. The bronze sculpture wall is lovely with some many memories portrayed. Inside is the story of Sun Yat Sen and his involvement in the Chinese revolution. Really interesting and I just loved the...

The caretakers took great efforts to restore this building and made it air-conditioned, as compared to the past when it wasnt. Although admission charges are required these days, this shall deter one to learn this significant part of China's history.
