Nanjing

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Jiangsu  /  Nanjing
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.

Where to stay in Nanjing

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Nanjing, a modern metropolis long on the radars of domestic and international tourists. Look south of the main railway station, following Central Road, to find the primary districts where visitors stay, with clusters of high-rise hotels--some luxurious and others standard, but all comfortable. A number of smaller boutiques set in formerly residential buildings provide atmospheric, well-maintained, and budget-friendly options. Take a look at the side streets around Central Road for a wealth of hostels and guesthouses.
