Nanjing is a beautiful city in China and I love going there as much as possible. The attached link reviews some of the awesome sites in Nanjing. It is a major city in China and the old capitol but is so much different from Shanghai or Beijing. It has many tree lined streets and you get all the modern conveniences of a major city but it still feels like a city for the Chinese without feeling too touristy (Beijing) or all business (Shanghai). The hotels are affordable and the food is outstanding with incredible low prices. It is actually less to eat in Nanjing than in Lishui (small city near the Nanjing Airport). During our last trip we spent 2 nights in Nanjing but the next time in China we will spent at least 4-5 days. The city is so warm and welcoming to visitors with many sites and great food. It may not be on the major tours but if you get a chance to visit Nanjing I would highly recommend it. Enjoy and Travel Safe.
