  • The building of the Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum is extremely beautiful, the Gu Pu and the end, the height and all can climb. At the top of the platform, the scenery is pleasant, with a reverence for the heart, to worship, one by two.

  • Easy to get to by metro (red line), is worth 100 kuai to spend a beautiful day in a great place. Matches from linggu pagoda and then head towards the mausoleum sun yet San and Ming tomb with the secret path. Are you planning to be there by 9 so you have enough time to see everything without hassle. At 17 closes everything! The only drawback, the shuttle costs 10 kuai each time you take it.
