Former Residence of Tong Shaoyi
Former Residence of Tong Shaoyi information
To the north of Xiāngzhōu, two sites are worth discovering in the labyrinth-like suburb of Tángjiāwān ( 唐家湾 ). Tangjia Public Garden was a private estate of the first premier of the Republic of China, Tong Shaoyi, in 1900. Now it is a tranquil garden preserving various old growth and rare species from South China. Take bus 10 on Yingbin Dadao and alight at Tangjia Market (Tángjiāshìcháng). A taxi from Gǒngběi to here is around Y60. The ticket to the garden includes admission to the nearby Former Residence of Tong Shaoyi , where this statesman was born. It’s accessible from the south gate of the garden.
