Nanjing is an old city in China. I really want to go there but I didn't have the chance until last summer, my friend and I made the decision----meeting in Nanjing. It's a long time since our last meeting.
After reserving the hotel, booking the round-trip train tickets and planning the route, we start our journey.
Before I got on the bullet train to Nanjing, my mother prepared some fruit for me.💓 It took about 10 hours to get there, which made me tired. However, I was excited more than tired.
Our hotel is in Xin Jie Kou which is the center of Nanjing and is near all place we will visit. There is a subway station in front of our hotel,so the transportation is very convenient.
高温是南京带给我的第一感受—好！热！空调在哪！ 南京的高温让我们差点放弃那些需要暴露在户外的景点。然而坚强的”到此一游“信念再加上湿透的后背证明高温—算什么！ 拍照和美食—更重要！
The scorching weather is the first impression that Nanjing gave me. It even made me think about giving up visiting these scenic spots which need us to walk outside without air-conditioner. However, I perished the thought rationally.
My trip can't be wasted. Most importantly, I like to take pictures and enjoy the food.
Before that day I just arrived, I only can see this logo from TV...now...😌
🎈Nanjing Presidential Palace总统府
It's an important historical landmark in Nanjing and full of the style of modern Chinese buildings. It housed the Office of the President of the Republic of China since 1927 until the capital was relocated to Taipei in 1949. It is now a museum called the China Modern History Museum.
🎈Librairie Avant-Garde(Mount Wutai Branch) 先锋书店
This bookshop is hidden in a former parking lot underground. It’s unique.
People around the world will leave their train or bus tickets and a postcard which they can write whatever they want to prove that they have been here. It's meaningful for a traveler to leave something in a strange city.
One of the things I'm interested most is these “smell” in the bottle. Each of them has its own meaning.
🎈Confucius Temple and East Zhonghua Gate Historical Culture Block 夫子庙和老门东
They have many similarities. They show us the life of Nanjing city in the past. There are many shops selling the souvenir, specialty, and special local snack. Confucius Temple is located on the Northern bank of the Qinhuai River so the night scene is wonderful.
🎈The Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders 南京大屠杀纪念馆
I think I have to go there because that is a miserable memory we have to remember.
🎈Nanjing Eye Footbridge👀南京眼步行桥
We caught the last tramcar which made me feel that I was taking the train on the road.
🎈1912 Bar Street🍸1912街区
A street has all kinds of bars. And also there are some coffee shops and restaurants. These buildings are modern Chinese style, which is suitable for young people to take artistic photos and enjoy the night.🍸
I always think it's pity for me to travel to a new city without tasting the local dishes.
In this restaurant, there are kinds of local dishes which all belong to Jinling cuisine. You must go to this restaurant if you want to try ‘Nanjing food’. 😉
Can I recommend the soup dumping for you? 😉
If you are thinking the soup is inside this sumping and you are right! When you bite, the soup comes out...
Other delicious food and drink in Shanghai Road in Nanjing.😍
It's worth mentioning that it's also a great city for shopping because there are many big shopping malls!
Three-day trip is too short. I would like to go to more places in Nanjing. I believe I will come back there.
It's a pity that I didn't take enough photos. I can't remember many details on this trip.( bad memory!)
So all my future travels are full of taking photos to record my every discovery.
I like this way of writing very freely to record something happened to me.
It should have been done earlier.
So now it's time to do it, at the same time, to improve my English! Welcome to correct my poor English.
I hope you can enjoy my sharing！🙈
Beautiful pictures I took last week for the ending, here.
To be continued...
