Spend the day here. Parks are phenomenal. Exotic Birds a Bonus!

The views are incredible from the stairs up to the mausoleum. The trees and plantings are extraordinary. Parks connect the mausoleum to the Ming Tombs and other structures. We... read more

The views are incredible from the stairs up to the mausoleum. The trees and plantings are extraordinary. Parks connect the mausoleum to the Ming Tombs and other structures. We were there when the cherry trees were in bloom and it created a magical setting. Ponds, flowers, trees and bushes created a picture perfect setting for the different varieties of exotic... More

In 2015 and 2016, we went to this mausoleum. We only walked up to the archway and to the gate because they close it every Monday for maintenance. This year our tour group changed the plan to visited Nanjing first. On that beautiful sunny day, we climbed up 392 steps all the way to the Memorial Hall and the stone... More

We we t to see the mausoleum following a guide book recommendation. The walk up is picturesque and the views from the mausoleum are fantastic. It is very very busy, we went on a Wednesday outside of holiday time and it was heaving, but this is china! The Mausoleum itself is not as impressive as you might expect but worth... More

This park is massive and encompasses quite a bit for a normal walking tour. This specific mausoleum is the closest you can get to from the MuXuYuan train station (Line 2). The walk up can be tiring if not prepared for it but there are transportation you can take up and down the park for about 10RMB. I would recommend... More

The site can easily be accessed via the metro station Xiamafang. From the metro station it's about a 30 minute walk to the mausoleum. It's uphill, but it's an easy walk. The mausoleum itself is very nice to look at and the view from the top of the steps (there are a lot of steps) is nice! There are lots... More

Sun Yatsen Mausoleum was a surprise. There was a lot of pollution that day and was a little bit difficult to arrive at the end of the stairs but it worth it. Anyway be careful when you pay the ticket at the entrance, the Mausoleum is free but the other things ( very interesting and beautiful too) are not and... More

I recommend taking the 10 RMB golf cart/bus up to the top as the walk is long and not really that scenic. After going here, take a short 1 mile walk to the Xiaoling Tomb.

For me it s definitely better the location than the monument itself. The mausoleum of the first chinese president is a chance for the western guys to better understand the country and the chinese history

Great travel experience, full of historic moments and interesting facts. The climb was pretty tough though-293 steps. Would recommend to people who like exploring but not to the elderly who have aching bodies.

Nothing much to look at. 3 degrees cold and nice cloudy view from the top , not much of a challenge climbing up. Hardly broke a sweat .
