Check it with Dr Sun Yat Sen mausoleum too. This one will need 60mins leisurely walk. Good to spend the whole day in the area, bring your own packed lunch

This place, built in the late 1300’s, is both historic and beautiful. The walkway is lined with trees and plants of many kinds, and the end of the walk has one terrific structure, which I include here.
