What people are saying:

Beautiful! Take metro line 2/3 to Daxinggong and walk a couple of minutes to the ticket office, It’s very easy to navigate and should be top of your list of places to visit in the city!

    Go early.

    We arrived at 2:30pm on Tuesday 8/04/2020. No more tickets available. This is probably due to Covid-19. We got in on Wednesday by showing up at 9:30am. Americans need their passport and their health c...

Additional Information


The Presidential Palace of Nanjing has a long history and prominent reputation. During the Qing Dynasty, it is the Weaving department of Jiangning and the Administrative headquarters of Jiangnan. On New Year's Day in 1912, Father of Modern China Dr Sun Yat-sen was appointed as the interim president at this location. Sun Yat-sen used this place as the president’s office and meeting room thereafter. Since then, the palace served as the presidential residence of the Kuomintang government. The building is a mixture of Chinese and Western architectural styles. It is generously proportioned and intriguing to look at. Take a stroll through the park to track the footsteps of Sun Yat-sen and understand the ever-changing nature of history.
