Description

Make your way to Shanghai Hongqiao Railway station for your train to Nanjing. You can buy your own tickets or use the tickets that were conveniently delivered to your hotel the day before. In Nanjing you meet your guide at the station, and then transfer to visit the Chaotian Gong or the “Heaven Palace.” Discover the ancient artefacts from the Ming Dynasty at the museum that occupies the interior of the historic building.

Next, you see a precious cultural relic, Zhonghua Gate, which has the double distinction of being the biggest castle-style city gate in China and a structural element of the most complicated castle in the world. Then have lunch at a local restaurant to try some traditional dishes from Nanjing.

After lunch, stop by the Song Dynasty Nanjing Confucius Temple, where people from times past worshiped and consecrated Confucius—the greatest philosopher and educator of ancient China. Then walk down the Qinhuai River, a branch of the great Yangtze River. Snap photos of the Chinese architecture that lines the river as you walk along its rivershide.

Your last stop is at the Mausoleum of Dr Sun Yat-Sen, which is situated at the foot of the second peak of Mount Zijin. Learn about Dr Sun's courageous fight against the corrupt Qing government that led to a revolution and the end of the feudal system and, ultimately, to the founding of the Republic of China. Then, return to the railway station to catch your train back to Shanghai.
