You might want to read up on the history of this extensive park so you get a feel of it's importance in Nanjing's (and China's) history. Once you're actually there, there's virtually nothing in English to help you understand what it's all about, although there...More

I visited the palace with my friend on a stifling hot summer day. We got the audio guides as well, and is started off fine. Despite the burning heat, we enjoyed the first stops on the guided tours. But after a while we got off...More

Detailed history of Nanjing. From dynasty to present. Lots of exhibits. If you read and walk through the whole place, may even take you 3-4hrs to look thru

Nanjing was the capital city of China before the establishment of the Communist state in 1949. The presidential palace is a gem of an attraction with very interesting displays of historical significance. Expect to spend half a day on your visit.
