It is a short walking distance from the hubu valley walking street. The residence provides glimpses into the living of Chairman Mao when he stayed in Wuhan. A must see for all history lovers.

Although the setting was not really stunning in any way, it was amazing to experience the setting in which Mao lived and to sit on furniture where he once sat. Given the impact that he had on China and on the entire world, it is...More

You can sit in a chair that Mao probably sat in, view his living quarters, and enjoy the unique Chinese architecture of the period. Down the same street in a separate museum are interesting photos from this same era, which enhance the historic significance of...More

With time to spare before our evening flight to Guangzhou (Canton), we were now given a choice of visiting either the Yellow Crane Pavilion or Chairman Mao's Villa. Because the former involved an entrance fee and much climbing, our weary group opted for the villa....More
