Interesting palace museum of the last emperor of China. It even had a garden and a swimming pool. The posh car used by the last emperor is parked in the compound.

About 3-4km or 40-50mins walk from Changchun's train station lies one of the best preserved historical sites I've come across during my year studying abroad in China: the palace/prison of the Manchurian regime's figurehead Pu Yi. Simply a 'must-visit' for anyone visiting Changchun.

This place will somewhat polarize people depending on how interested one is in life of the Last Emperor. Nevertheless, thought the attraction was great exposure to a piece of Chinese history I knew little about beforehand. Be forewarned that the exhibits are not always in...More
