After Hangzhou was a four day trip to Nanjing which took around an hour and forty minutes on the high speed train. Of course I had to visit Nanjing as it was a former capital of China, known as a part of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China and is full of it’s own history. Nanjing means southern capital whilst Beijing means northern capital. It was probably the one and only city I had visited where I had learnt so much history, in particular the Nanjing Massacre. I did visit the memorial hall and it will be featured in the next post. Yep, a 4 day trip that will be split into two posts. Let the first part begin:
Places featured in this post
City Wall (南京城墙)

Stick around for part 2.
