Sun Yatsen’s Former Residence
This European style villa on the fringes of Fuxing Park, was home to the founder of modern China, Sun Yatsen, and his wife, Song Qinling, from 1918 to 1924. His wife continued to live here after Sun’s death in 1925. This is really only for Chinese history buffs. You’ll be lead through the residence by a guide. The villa contains some of Sun’s personal effects and various photographs and is furnished in the same way as when he lived there.
