Back from Nanking

check out the web album

  • Nice bullet-train ride from Shanghai to Nanking(though not as fast as bullet-trains in the rest of the world, well, not yet). 300KM in 2.5 hours, 3 stops in between.
  • Hunan Rd is nice in the evening for food (if you like real Chinese food).
  • Confucius temple, Qinghuai river are nice
  • Youth hostel close to Confucius temple under poor management.
  • Not as clean(organized) as other neighbouring cities
Rating: 3 out of 5
Conclusion: old capital, so it's old. Somehow not well maintained and developed in my opinion
