I was happy that we hired a private tour guide for the visit of the tombs. If you are not interested in history, without a tour guide, you'll just consider it as pieces of bricks. However, if you listened to tour guide's explanation, you'll realize...More

The wall itself is actually close to 700 years old. The top part may have been refurbished in some way but this wall is straight up legit.

The gardens were so beautiful, especially Spirit Way. I'm so glad we got to see this with lush green leaves on the trees - made it so impressive. Ming's Tomb was impressive as well. This is a must see when visiting Nanjing

It is not easy to understand what it is original and what has been rebuilt after the tumultuous 20th century Chinese history. Nevertheless, it is highly worth a visit. One can walk across beautiful gardens touching the glorious history of the Ming dynasty.

The tomb for the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty. Most of the tourists visiting Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum start from the Muxuyuan Station (苜蓿園站) of Subway No. 2 (Red line). Actually this station is at the midway of the mausoleum yard. Don’t miss the Sacred...More
