Nanjing overview

The ancient city of Nanjing is the capital of Jiangsu province, and lies on the south bank of the famous Yangtze river. Over two thousand years of history sits alongside the city’s modern side, where skyscrapers and shopping malls are just round the corner from temples, palaces and relics from ancient dynasties. History buffs should pay a visit to the Presidential Palace of Nanjing, with historical roots stretching back to the Ming Dynasty who ruled China between 1368 and 1644. The Confucius Temple, originally constructed in 1034 is a beautiful building paying testament to the wisdom of Confucianism. Surrounding the temple are many buildings constructed in the traditional Chinese architectural style, with winding markets, restaurants and coffee shops where you can sit by the canal and watch the world go by in this enchanting city.
