I visited this Presidential compound on a hot day. This place carries great historical significance in modern Chinese history, as this is where the KMT government was defeated by Mao's army during the Civil war. As one would expect, there were lots of local students...More

We had a nice time strolling through the gardens, but learned very little as there were few signs in English. It would have been better if we'd read about the history there ahead of time.

It's where the government of china ran the country prior to chairmen Mao. I lived across the street from the presidential palace for 5 years and only visited it before I moved back to Canada. I'm glad I did!

When Sen Yet Sen agreed to lead the fledgling Chinese Republic in 1912, they need something worthy of the leader of a country steeped in history and tradition. This is what they came up with and it is stunning given its relative simplicity. Worth a...More
