Honestly I shouldn't have written this review, as this trip happened many years ago. However I couldn't remove this rating. So let me still put a short review here. The Kong Mansion is one of the oldest places, to commemorate Confucius and his legacy. This...More

Bought a 3-attraction pass for the Temple, Mansion & Forrest of Confucius, and did this one first. For a person who was so influential and important, the 3 attractions don’t seem to want you to know a lot about him. There are very few signs...More

This family mansion is where the descendants of Confucius once lived. It is now a museum and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The complex is rather huge, with many halls and pavilions, some of them being converted as shops. There are short Chinese...More
