Explore the ruins of an ancient city at Yan Cheng Yi Zhi. The 0.6 sq km (0.23 sq mi) site stands as the oldest and best preserved excavation of a city in China. See the three layers of town walls and moats that protected the locals almost 3,000 years ago. The site abounds with signposts displaying historical facts, so you can get around easily without a guide. Bring some snacks or pack a picnic lunch, as you won't find any food on site.

    Hopefully those responsible die soon pitiful and painful to AIDS or cancer or fall a terrorist attack victim. Then burn in hell for all eternity! This action is typical for the handling of Chinese animals. They eat even everything - even when alive. Ugh hell! My contempt for all who visit this zoo!

Where to stay in Changzhou

In this place of business, rather than tourism, you're far more likely to find luxury hotels and business hotels aimed at one-night stays than budget accommodations in Changzhou. Chain hotels sit among the newer commercial developments throughout town, with some upmarket and standard options to choose from. The odd guesthouse can be found in older, more residential parts, along with apartment rentals. Stay close to the central train station if planning onward travel.
