Tianjin Day Trip from Beijing by Express Train...
Reviewed 8 June 2017

This is the living place of Puyi- the last emperor of Qing Dynasty, but after he left here, this place was occupied by different parties so most of the areas were destroyed as time went by, until the government decided to retake it and made some refreshment. The admission fee is RMB20, but this place is too small, if you don't like the history too much, it's not worthy of visiting.

For Chinese history buffs, this place will give them an idea about the life of Puyi, the last emperor of Qing dynasty, after he was expelled from the Forbidden City. He stayed in Tianjin for a few years while in his exile, with his Queen and concubine, before his restoration as puppet emperor. This western style villa lurked amongst rows of houses in the area and not particularly luxurious. The exhibits were largely pictures of Puyi and his women, mostly bilingual. The furniture and settings in the house largely displayed in the same manner as he used to do. Fur coat in his Queen's room added some nostalgic air.

A small courtyard and a fountain next to his villa. On-site Cafe and souvenir shop available. Entrance fee RMB20. Full tour will take around one hour.

The last emperor has lived here. Not to compare with the forbidden city in Peking. Not even to compare with palaces of new rich. But it has a special style and beauty.

This was Puyi's residence after he was forced out of Forbidden Palace. The onsite museum and the displays in the living quarters provided a glimpse on how Puyi's lived during this period. It is worth spending 60 to 90 minutes to learn about the history.

This former residence of Puyi is one of Tianjin's historic highlights. There are subtitles in English on most of the displays and there are some interesting stories and artefacts. There is a brief video worth watching, too. The atmosphere could be quite serene, if it weren't for the Chinese tour groups barging through.
