Lonely Planet review
Built in the 1920s by a Greek shipping magnate, this building became home to the wife of Dr Sun Yatsen from 1948 to 1963. Size up two of her black limousines (one a gift from Stalin) in the garage and pad about the house, eyeing its period furnishings.
A few personal belongings are also on display, including autographed books from American journalists Edgar Snow and Agnes Smedley, and a collection of old photographs depicting the Soong sisters and various heads of state. The highlight is the gorgeous garden out back, with tall magnolias and camphor trees towering over a delightful lawn, where Song entertained her guests with conversation and tea.
