Sun Yates Mausoleum is a trademark for Nanjing as Nanjing being capital for Republic of China and Sun Yates being a president in the past. The view is beautiful on top of a long ramp. There is not a lot of exercise and it has significant meaning to a Nanjing citizen as me. I have been going to Sun Yates... More

It is a big place. And a very good day trip from the city. By weekend there are usually lots of people and I think it is one of the must see places in Nanjing.

Visiting the site with a 10yo kid, iwas a little sceptical about making it to the top, but we made it quite easily. You don't need torush, take your time. The view is indeed spectacular, taking into account that the surrounding area is quite flat. We got half/lucky because it was a little smoggy on the day that we visited.... More

There are tourist cart by the subway station where it... More

Really enjoyed our hike up to the top, beautiful scenery and views. Lots of people even mid week made one realise how special this place is. Enjoyed using our selfy-stick for filming those panoramic views.

First of all, save your time and hop on one of the tourist cars that takes you from the entrance to the Mausoleum. You'll need this for exploring beautiful park around. I'll be honest there is nothing to see in the mausoleum itself - only sculpture of Sun Yatsen, but the view from the top compensates it.

Large grounds and well maintained. The mausoleum was a disappointment to be honest after the long tedious climb up. Expected more but on the whole nice open grounds. Be prepared to walk and climb.
