Nanjing Tour Guide
京 (jing) in Chinese means Capital, 北京 (Beijing) the capital of China, in which 北 means North, so it literally means Northern capital, so 南京 stands for Southern capital. Nanjing used to be the capital of China 10 times in the whole Chinese history.
Nanjing located in eastern China even though it isn't as fashionable as Shanghai, nor is its architecture as majestic as Beijing’s. But the well-preserved Chinese culture and history, ancient city wall and city gate, architecture unique to China's Minguo era (1912-1949) and roots of one of China’s finest cuisines are highly alluring.
