  • A symbol of Shenyang. Traditional place and easy to reach from any 5 star hotel by taxi. Recommendable place.  more »
  • The money what you pay for entrance doesn't deserve that (60 rmb) . Quite boring as for me.The most of palace rooms looking the same  more »
  • We visited on a tourist tour of Shenyang. I think it is worth to visit compared to Taipei's National Palace Museum exhibits can also be rude but.

  • If you are around then worth a visit, otherwise no need to come from a long way to here.
  • We liked 11 pictures we loved it. The thing we liked most was the building that has golden dragons because the golden dragons made the building look beautiful
  • palace of first qing emperor. it is much smaller than Beijing forbidden city or taiwan forbidden city. It is situated in thw most busy area, you can easily get to other points of interests such as DaShuaiFu,and zhong jie (middle steet shopping malls)
  • Amazing historical place. You will need more than 2h to take a walk around this palace.
  • 不一样的风格!
