Presidential palace of Nanjing Reviews
The presidential palace of Nanjing is very different from that of Taibei. This one is very spacious and worth staying a couple of hours. It seems that the palace is more popular among Chinese people..... more »
It is more of an office building with a big garden surrounding it which is well kept. Not a big area and one can complete the tour within two hours or so but you have to pay (RMB 40 or 20 for senior..... more »
Entrance fee is RMB40 for me, a non local. Unfortunately 85% is in Chinese. Very little English translation. Would have enjoyed immensely if they had put the translation in context for this historically famous place. All meaning is lost for me as I go from room to room. It's just about scanning at old pictures & artifacts for few secs then move on. Enjoyed the grounds & lakes though.
Not many artifacts; mainly photos.
