Nanjing, as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, compared with other popular tourist destinations, is the most underestimated one, especially from the cultural and historical side. Besides the popular tourist attractions such as Presidential Palace, Sun Yat-sen’s Mausoleum, and Ming Xiaoling, there are two places you should not miss in Nanjing, Grand Baoen Temple, where you can learn the history and admire ancient China’s most beautiful pagoda through modern technology; and Meiling Palace, to know the love story of Chiang Kai-Shek and Soong Mei-ling, and to know Chiang Kai-Shek from another side, as a vivid person instead of a dictator.
Nanjing’s nightlife is one of the best in China, having dinner and shopping with your loved ones in Laomendong; taking a boat on Qinhuai River; admiring the city’s night view from Nanjing Eye Pedestrian Bridge, or having a drink in Nanjing 1912 bar street.
