One of those areas you visit and just look. As I lived there it was not a photo op, but just to walk around taking in the sites. If you don't like being outside your comfort zone for a while, then don't go there. If you just want to soak up the atmosphere, figuratively, it's your place.😎

Visit in the evening for the best experience
Jun 2019 • Business
Having read some of the other reviews of Bayi Square, I can understand why some visitors left underwhelmed. If you visit during the day, all you will find is a large monument in a large square. The best time to visit is in the evening along with the rest of Nanchang.

Get there before eight o’clock and spend a while people watching - kids playing with neon light up toys and hundreds of kites being flown. Take a look at the memorial plaque lit up and sunken beneath the square commemorating those who lost their lives during the revolution.

Then at 8, head over towards the monument where you’ll be treated to a thirty minutes sound, light and water display- it’s a bit kitsch but great fun never-the-less.

As with many things in Nanchang though, it’s the people who make it special, always welcoming and keen to practice their English on you. If you go expect to be asked to pose for photos, as westerners are still not a common site.

Offers historical insights to the 1st Aug 1927 revolution. A monument not to be missed, to appreciate the local culture and history.

Took the MRT to do some shopping in the area. Nice Square especially when it is lit at night.

Locals were enjoying themselves and some were flying kites.

Not much to see here

A large square with a monument in the middle. You take 1 photo and you are on your way to the next place. Simple as that. Still worth stopping by just for the importance of this place, though.

A revolutionary historic city
Aug 2018 • Solo
This is the first attraction I visited in Nanchang. My hostel was a 10 minute walk from this attraction. The airport shuttle bus alighted here when I arrived Nanchang at 8 pm and it was visibly illuminating and attractive. I had a quick glance of her that night when the bus alighted me and the following morning, I strolled my way here at 6 am to explore her in details.

Nanchang is the revolutionary city of Chinese communism. It is here that the communists staged their first unsuccessful armed coup to capture power from the Kuomintang. Many lives were sacrificed and the Square with the monument were built and erected to remember this indelible part of history. The aftermath effect of this coup was the eventual bloody split between the revolutionary communists and the kuomintang Nationwide, thousands of communists were sieved out, assassinated and gunned down. The revolutionary coup or uprising also laid down the foundation for the eventual formation of the Red Army led by Mao.

The Square looks like a miniature version of the Tian An Men Square. Visiting the Square and paying respect to the monument has become an essential part of the revolutionary education for communist cadres and the youth.

From the monument erected at the central part of the Square, we can see the Municipal government building, the Wanda Plaza and from here, I took a 30-min walk to visit the Tengwang Pavilion, the Jiangxi Museum and the August 1st Nanchang Uprising Memorial Museum which are not far from this square.

I came here thrice, one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one at night. The weather in August was terribly hot at noon but it was much cooler at night with crowds of residents gathered at the square for a stroll, dance and relax. I did not see any water work display probably it was only at weekend.

I was in Nanchang for only one day before heading to Lushan the following morning. In one day, I was able to cover the Tengwang Pavilion, the Bayi Uprising Memorial Museum, the Jiangxi Museum, the Nanchang Library, the Bayi Park, Wanda Plaza and few of the shopping street.

It was a wonderful day and I think you can't miss out this Square during the exploration.

Nice place to stroll

Bayi Square is a nice place to stroll. It's also educational in terms of some Chinese history. Stop by, take pictures, cross the road to Wanda Plaza. When I was there, they were building parts of the metro system.

Parts of the square are still ok, but they are working on installing permanent bridges to cross the street and metal walls block the edges.

The memorial monument is still accessible at the south end.

Temporarily not accessible
Apr 2017 • Solo
At the time of my writing (April 2017) this square is not accessible to people as there are works in progress. Make sure it is open to the public before going there. Therefore it is difficult for me to rate it. However I heard this is the second biggest square in China after Tian an men. I believe once it will be completely renovated, it will look gorgeous.
