I visited Nanjing not really know what to expect of the city. It does not receive the accolades that some of it's neighboring cities like Suzhou earn but I heard that it was suppose to be a pleasant city all the same. I found that this was exactly the case. Nanjing is a very charming and modern city. However I found that it really does not have any of the big ticket attractions that draw in the tourists like other more famous cities in China. Still there are plenty of sites that are worth visiting, especially those around the Purple Mountain. It is just that nothing that I visited seemed to be a must-see.
Nanjing has a very interesting and somewhat tragic history. During the days of the Republic of China, Nanjing was the capital of the country. In 1937, the city was sacked by invading Japanese forces who conducted the infamous "Rape of Nanjing. Today the city is one of the most modern in China with great shopping, superb hotels and charming streets. If you have plenty of time to spend in China, I do recommend that you consider Nanjing as part of your tour.
- Pros:Good Shopping, Good Restaurants, Very Clean.
- Cons:No major attractions.
- In a nutshell:A Good Insight into the Booming China.
Much to my surprise when visiting Nanjing, I discovered that it had a marvelous new metro/subway system. Why it was... more travel advice
