Occupying a strategic site on the south bank of the Yangtze River in a beautiful setting amongst lakes, the river and wooded hill backdrop, Nanjing has an extremely rich and complex history, derived from its position as a political and economic centre for the agriculturally rich southeast China region.

Capital of Jiangsu province and capital of imperial China under the early Ming dynasty and of Republican China under the nationalists from 1911 to 1949, Nanjing (Nanking) is a great city that offers an even mix of imperial and revolutionary China. Famed for its City Wall (one of the longest in the world), Nanjing offers many points of interest including the impressive Mausoleum of Dr. Sun Yat-sen - the great pioneer of the Chinese Revolution located on Purple Mountain, the ruins of the Ming Palace – a model for Beijing’s Forbidden City, the Tomb of Zhu Yuanzhang - the first Ming Emperor, and the Yangtze River Bridge. The Russians said it couldn’t be done but Chinese ingenuity won through, the result being that the vast bridge now links south with north China. There is also a memorial hall to the thousands of Chinese massacred by invading Japanese troops during the “Rape of Nanjing” in 1939.

Around 75% of Nanjing’s City Walls remain, a testament to Ming craftsmanship. Parts of the wall can be walked upon. The city’s Provincial Museum is a must-visit with many exhibits captioned in English. For some charming relaxation, picturesque Xuanwu Lake in the city’s northeast corner is fringed with pavilions, boat piers, lily pads, trees and flowers.
