"Nanjing - Surprising capital of the South" Nanjing by SLLiew

Nanjing Travel Guide: 493 reviews and 1,305 photos

Nanjing is famous for the Nanking Massacre. So it was the main thing I wanted to see and the thing that I missed because I went too late. So a picture in front of the gate of the museum was what I could do for the memory those many many innocents who were merciless slaughtered.

I was surprised that there was so much that Nanjing offers. Being the former capital (Nanjing =South Capital), there were many significant historical tourist sites and museums of past dynasties. The city is more well planned than I expected and I would rate Nanjing amongst Suzhou and Hangzhou for places not to miss if you are visiting Shanghai.

    Nanjing is a historical city which I hope to visit one day, did not have time to go when I was in Shanghai a few years ago.

    My wife said that Nanjing was not really interesting, but I think I'll suggest her next time to go anyway. I think she just doesn't want to be confronted with the horrors of 1937.
