  • The installation in the President's house is very simple, but the available materials are high, and even if they are, they are expensive data. Brick is my favorite, the color is very old. With the special roof design, the special flowers and plants in the backyard make people feel a sense of light passing through.

  • Lots of post 1911 history in this museum. Very big and busy, set aside at least 2 to 3 hours for in depth understanding. Everything in Chinese so unless you understand Mandarin or Chinese, di some res...  more »
  • The city is located in the center of Nanjing, Central Axis route, adjacent to the Nanjing Library, the traffic is very convenient and many tourists. The ticket is 40 yuan and you can buy the tickets ahead of time on the Internet. The president's design is very neat and design-designed. There are a lot of homes in the garden, there are military protection settings, and each room is very detailed. I can really feel the time of the Government of Nanking.

  • This could be the one and only presidential palace of the Republic of China that is open to public. Admission is ¥40 (free for City Park Annual Pass holder), discounted ticket of ¥20 available for adolescents, students, elders, soldiers and disabled.
  • A huge place... In Beijing, they have Forbidden City(Gu Gong), in Nanjing, they have Presidential Palace. This place witness the birth of modern China. A must visit for those who is interested in what happen during that period.
  • Roc 's formal presidential office but held with prc 's flag now
  • Nice place to visit
  • Very significant place to understand the evolution of modern China; has many layers of history and stories so a whole day visiting might not do justice.
