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.😎…

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.

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.

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.
