Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Climbing up the slope of a hill and surrounded by a dense forest of pine and cypress trees, Nanjing Botanical Garden Memorial Sun Yat-Sen houses the final remains of the founding father of modern China. Sun Yat-Sen lead the 1911 revolution that ended the monarchy and initiated the republic. Enter his mausoleum through the marble memorial archway and follow a shaded passage, which leads to the triple arcade with three pairs of copper gates. The inscription over the gates, featuring four Chinese characters, reads “the world is a commonwealth.” Walk up the long, wide stairway, which leads up from a pavilion to a sacrificial hall housing a 4.6 m (13 ft) tall statue of a seated Sun Yat-Sen holding an open book.

  • The 392 steps of the staircase leading to the mausoleum are worth only if the weather is nice because the more that deserves the top view of Nanjing.

  • A bit of a stair climb to visit the tomb itself but well worth it for the views alone. Very worthwhile to read some of the family history before you go to understand the Chinese political mindset.  more »
  • Located in the mausoleum and the highest finish against Prada had to climb a long/f staircase high Gao 風guang beautiful, but this little Sun Yat-Sen century reading Museum and cannot be photographed, walked out in about 5 minutes you can, have a little class like the Chinese Sheng Macedonia century monument.

Where to stay in Nanjing

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Nanjing, a modern metropolis long on the radars of domestic and international tourists. Look south of the main railway station, following Central Road, to find the primary districts where visitors stay, with clusters of high-rise hotels--some luxurious and others standard, but all comfortable. A number of smaller boutiques set in formerly residential buildings provide atmospheric, well-maintained, and budget-friendly options. Take a look at the side streets around Central Road for a wealth of hostels and guesthouses.
