Nanchang is the capital of the Jiangxi Province, a region famous for beautiful scenery, ancient cultural sights and a rich Chinese history. The city is also known as Heroes' City because it was here that the communist uprising began in 1927. Why not make your next trip to China one to remember, and choose one of our great Nanchang hotels to stay in.
The Tengwang Pavilion is one of the most iconic landmarks of the city. Constructed in 653, the towering pavilion is one of the four great towers of China, and was recently restored in 1989. Apart from the impressive architecture you can enjoy traditional musical performances that use reconstructed ancient instruments, and wander the area surrounding the pavilion to see the centre of the city's antiques trade. Take a ride on the Star of Nanchang, which was the world's tallest Ferris Wheel until 2008, or head to Qiushui Square and see the largest musical fountain in Asia.
Bird lovers should head to Poyang Lake, the largest freshwater lake in China, to see the thousands of migratory species that pass through. If you prefer hiking there are many trails to follow around the lake and into the forest, which are all ideal for an afternoon walk. Discover more tracks in the Lushan National Park, or take a challenge and test yourself on the trek to the summit of Dragon and Tiger Mountain for a spectacular view.
The Sheng Jin Tower in downtown Nanchang is fantastic, and is a wonderful example of a traditional Buddhist temple. Surrounding the temple, you can wander through the side streets and unique little stores to buy one-of-a-kind souvenirs, especially Cloud and Fog Tea from Mount Lushan, or a bottle of locally made Lidu Wine. Nanchang is also famous for the region’s Gan Cuisine, so don't leave before you have a chance to sample some of the ethnic delights.
