Explore the less crowded and more peaceful reaches of Houhai.
- On the north bank of the beautiful Hou Hai area lies a prince's mansion circa the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The former residence of Soong Ching Ling lies at the garden of this mansion. Madam Soong, wife of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the founder of the Republic of China, was the late honorary chairperson of the new China. After she passed away on 1981, her residence was turned into a museum dedicated to the memory of her and her husband. The house is kept as it was when she was alive.
