Nanjing City Guide

Brief History

Despite being one of China’s lesser known cities today, back in its golden era hundreds of years ago, everyone wanted a piece of Nanjing. The city has served as the capital for many of China’s infamous dynasties, most notably the Ming dynasty in the 14th century. Even though it saw its fair share of power during this time, it was from the 19th century onwards that Nanjing started to find itself in times of trouble. The Opium War took its toll in the mid-1800s, there was Chinese revolution in the early 20th century, and in 1937 the Japanese invaded and thousands of people were killed in what is named the Nanjing Massacre. Nevertheless, Nanjing has managed to rise from the ashes, and modern Nanjing is a fascinating blend of ancient culture and lively metropolis.

Popular Attractions

Around almost every corner in Nanjing is a phenomenal piece of Chinese architecture. Due to its ancient history, this city is awash with beautiful things to see, all of which will get you in touch with authentic China. The Sun Yatsen and Ming Xiaoling Mausoleums are two of the most famous sights in Nanjing, and for good reason. These magnificent structures pay homage to two of the city’s emperors gone by, and draw in many visitors. Sun Yatsen is particularly impressive as it’s on Mount Zijin, or Purple Mountain, a sight worth seeing in itself. For temples in Nanjing, you have many options. Linggu Temple, Jining Temple, and the Porcelain Tower of Nanjing are three examples of some of Nanjing’s more impressive temples. At all of these you’ll find yourself gawping at the tall pagodas, and no doubt find some peace and quiet as you have a walk around. And if towers are your thing, don’t miss the Yuejiang Tower, which is on top of Lion Mountain and from which you can enjoy some perfect views of Nanjing. Lastly, for some culture and history don’t miss the Jiangsu Art Gallery, an exhibition center showcasing traditional Chinese are housed in a sleek, modern building, and the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall, an important attraction that preserves the memory of all who were killed.

Food

Nanjing is the capital of the Jiangsu Province, one of China’s most famous regions when it comes to food. Here you’ll find plenty of distinct dishes to try either in restaurants or the food stands that line many if Nanjing’s streets. Sample some salted duck, shredded tofu in chicken broth, lots of soups, sesame pancakes, and all the dumplings you could ever dream of.

Transport

Lukou International Airport serves Nanjing, and connections are available to and from all over China and other countries in Asia, but also Germany, funnily enough. Travelers coming from elsewhere could change in a few other places, such as Hong Kong or Beijing.

Tips for Travelers

To get around on Nanjing’s metro system, it could be worth getting a transit card, also known as an ‘IC-card’. These are rechargeable cards that offer cheaper transit fares. You have to put down a fee to buy one, but you can get that back if you give the card in at the end of your trip. Nanjing is one of the safest cities in China, but there are still some dangers, the main one being pickpocketers. Always make sure you have a close eye on your belongings when you’re out in public. Nanjing has a humid subtropical climate, so make sure you pack accordingly for sticky weather!

Fun Facts
