Yu Hua Tai, Nanjing

3.9
#5 of 29 in Parks in Nanjing
Densely covered with trees, Yu Hua Tai features many monuments commemorating Chinese revolutionaries and opponents of the Chiang Kai-shek regime. This popular hiking location became the site of execution of nearly 100,000 communists in 1927. Nowadays, an obelisk inscribed with words of communist leader Mao Zedong--praising the heroes of the revolution--stands out from the highest hill of the park. You'll see nine human figures carved in stone, representing all social layers, including peasants, workers, intellectuals, and politicians fighting for decent life. A museum near the memorial displays exhibits relating to people who died fighting for their higher cause.

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.
