Home Nanjing Attractions

Nanjing, the only counterpart of Beijing in the aspect of history and culture of China, is a central city of Jiangnan region traditionally. In modern China, since the opening of Shanghai as a trading port city, the nationwide status of Nanjing has been gradually replaced. Nowadays, as the development of China, Shanghai and Beijing are the representatives of the showcases of China’s economy and international profile instead of Nanjing and Beijing, both of which used to be the centers of China economy and political centers. Today, the influence of Nanjing has declined in tourism and economy, even inferior to Suzhou and Wuxi in Jiangsu province, though it is still the provincial capital. There is a basic consensus in inbound tourism industry that Nanjing in East China is far less known than Suzhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai, despite it has a large number of unique and high-ranking tourist attractions.

Nanjing is so poor that negatively influenced by modern history of China when it was still the national capital of the Republic of China, due to the bloody Nankin Massacre, in a short period, at least, 300, 000 civilians were killed inhumanely by Japanese intruders. Since then, Nanjing has been a symbol of a tragic and sorrowful memory of China, while its glorious history and culture before that was neglected in a most degree. Objectively speaking, it is an injustice to Nanjing in the aspect of tourism. Nanjing, in fact, has a larger number of tourist attractions than any other cities in southeast China; moreover, the qualities of attractions and the services of tourism are well considerably. When you do not get refreshed by the routine itineraries traditionally arranged by any travel agency in China, why not try a difference in East China?

Nanjing tourist attractions are quite typically characterized by the history of ancient capital and the culture of ROC (Republic of China). The ancient sites of history and culture in Nanjing are represented by the imperial mausoleums, national temples, and the national official organs or sectors. The attractions of Nanjing in the period of the Republic of China are strongly highlighted with the Sino-West architectural sties when Nanjing was the national capital just as today’s Beijing. The details of tourist attractions of Nanjing as below may help you learn further about the history and culture of Nanjing.
