Presidential palace of Nanjing, Nanjing

(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Explore the impressive collections of the modern history museum in Presidential palace of Nanjing, a sprawling 600-year-old imperial residence and former seat of political power. Tour the complex, climbing the five-story tower, admiring life-size wax figures of important historical personalities, and exploring the office of the provisional president. A contrast of traditional Chinese and Western-style architecture gives a sense of the tumultuousness of China's road to modernization. Stroll past numerous gardens and carp ponds as you ponder the country's momentous history, ranging from the early Christianity-inspired Taipei Rebellion and the establishment of the Heavenly Kingdom, to the abolition of the empire. Plan to see Presidential palace of Nanjing and other attractions that appeal to you using our Nanjing trip builder.
