Tengwang Pavilion, Nanchang

3.2
See an impressive and storied structure at Tengwang Pavilion, a tall and ornate building that stands as a landmark of the city. The history of the nine-floor pavilion goes all the way back to 653 CE, when it served as the townhouse of the local governor, Li Yuanying. Destroyed and rebuilt 29 times over the years, and serving many different functions, the pavilion displays attractively decorated interiors and includes a central theater area that stages performances of traditional music. The current building stays true to the Song dynasty style, and was built in 1989 under the instruction of esteemed Chinese architect Liang Sicheng.

    Super beautiful Pagoda with a piece of Chinese history. View over the river and skyline to opposite side is phenomenal!

    A unique experience in Nanchang. Typical Chinese constructions with a fantastic Museum! Worth visiting!

    Very good place, magnificent, at least in appearance and scenic environment is worthy of praise. Inside you can see a lot, artifacts, historical documents, wax, personally engraved bricks very much impressed. Ointment is too modern building decoration, marble ground steel and concrete sense, although there is air conditioning in the tourism environment had improved, but lack a sense of the vicissitudes of history, of course, for a renewal of buildings, so that is good.

Where to stay in Nanchang

Expect well-maintained business hotels in Nanchang, but if you're looking for affordable accommodations, don't set your expectations too high. While this destination has hundreds of hotels and hostels to choose from, the inexpensive options tend to lack modern comforts. If possible, spend a little bit more on a mid-range hotel to secure adequate amenities. If you have the money to spend on a more upscale international hotel, plenty of these options lie distributed throughout the city.
