  • 2016-12-24 in front sight "benevolence"of the square (stop towards "charity band", on the left side) and then took a white 8 seater open electric car. In sight of electric car 10 Yuan and the Ming Xiaoling mausoleum entrance 70 original pay together. Takes about 5 minutes to Akira Takashi mausoleum scenic area, no. 7 gate. Ling official. A. After touring the building, Weng 仲路 Shinto, Shinto stone elephant road and went through about an hour. I would get around a vast site anyway, so "landscape zone of transportation" to good use. Out of the No. 4 gate back to the Metro No.2 line 苜蓿 Taoyuan station.

  • Went to the entrance of Ming Xiaoling mausoleum in Nanjing city by taxi in less than 30 minutes arrived at the entrance of the Nanjing Zhong mountain scenery zone, from facility to and from bus. From there walk to explore further. Atmosphere don't play somehow, I had walked quietly around the noisy Chinese. Grows in size, but the building itself does not know very well, we walk through and around took about 2 hours. This is a great man worthy of a Grand mausoleum.

  • 国家5A级旅游景点,世界文化遗产。建议购买套票,景区前有小火车来往各个景点,是明太祖朱元璋的陵寝,占地达170余万平方米。陵前的神道石刻一直都是南京秋天的象征。梅花山的孙权墓和南京最美的湖—紫霞湖都在明孝陵景区内。
