Nanjing

Nanjing was China's ancient southern capital and commercial center from the 3rd to the 6th century; today it reins as the capital city of Jiangsu Province. Nanjing combines beautiful country scenery with a long and important cultural history. Located 173 miles northwest of Shanghai (40 minutes by air), and 1 1/2 hours by air from Beijing, Nanjing's educational facilities are renowned worldwide. There is a fine provincial museum with exhibits dating back to prehistoric Peking Man. Just south of Nanjing is the Temple of Confucius in Qufu, built in 1034 along the Qinhuai River. Adjacent is an excellent cultural center and teahouse serving more than 200 traditional foods and delicacies of the area. Today, Nanjing remains the cultural and commercial center of the south, located in the scenic tapestry of the Yangtze River basin.
