Little known by citizens of the West, the Last Emperor of China was taken by the Japanese after his overthrow in 1911 and the Japanese made him their puppet leader during their occupation of Manchuria. This palace was built by the Japanese to house the emperor in the capital of the Japanese-run state, Manchukuo. The scale may not be nearly... More

I traveled here with a few friends during my bachelor party in Changchun. Although I had been before, this trip was a particularly wonderful experience. Cons: The signage is not well translated into English, and is often hard to read. In addition, knowledge of the history of Manchuria is assumed, and as a result, I would recommend English-speaking tourists to... More

Puyi, the last emperor of China, had his story told by Bertolucci in his impressive, award-winning movie. The Qing Dinasty was originally from Manchuria, so it is interesting to see this reminder of Chanchun as the capital of China for some years. The Imperial Palace is a curious twist in the Forbidden City paradigm - while the Ming palace in... More

Feb 4 Changchun on the Songhua Plain is only 200 years old, yet it has a population of over 8M residents and is the capital of Jilin province. In the NE part of the city are the many separate buildings and houses of the puppet emperor, Puyi. The museum was a home built by the Japanese for Puyi, his wives,... More

This where the last emperor,,Puyi, lived before he was captured by Russian red army and became a normal citizen after many years of life in Jail. In comparison of the first palace, Forbidden Palace, Forbidden City Palace, this is of course much smaller but this place is full of dramatic story. A good place to visit to immerse yourself into...

Yes this event is free for the stroll in the historical museum. This is put together very well. I think this is one spectacular place to visit. Plenty of walking space. It's not exactly easy for the wheelchair activity. People can get areal taste and capture the times of Chinese Japanese struggles to free their captives. This was very intense.... More
