Times have changed and San yatt sen now seems to get more credit than Mao Zedong for changing china. This is the site of the military academy set up by the Chinese nationalist party in the 1920's. it included all the revolutionary groups trying to bring democracy and freedom and overcome the old feudal system. After the failure of the 1911 revolution they regrouped in the south and this was the site of the attempt to build an army to defeat the warlords of the north. There is quite a lot to see, ranging from the museum of more recent tanks an weapons to the academy itself and thenthe former customs house or the San Yat Sen memorial building. Ironically he was backed by a Japanese friend. It is very interesting and most of the exhibits have English translations. We got a taxi there but took the ferry back across the river and then bus to tube station. Very easy and very cheap.
