Located on the south bank of the Yangtze River, Nanjing was the capital city of numerous dynasties over the ages. The city displays its past political importance in a range of sites, many UNESCO-protected, including mausoleums of great rulers, city walls and fortifications, royal gardens, and temples. A number of museums help to piece together the complex history of the city, while modern developments, including malls, skyscrapers, and city parks stand among some of the most attractive, cleanest, and best cared-for in the country. Visits to Nanjing allow for a great deal of exploration further afield, with tributaries of the main river, hills, and forests to explore in the surrounding areas. Nanjing is in Jiangsu. When using our China trip planner to make an itinerary online, Nanjing holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
