Everyone who goes to Nanjing will go to Yuejiang Tower, where you can have a close look at Changjiang River. The attraction is large, splendid and high.

Spend an hour or so at this fabulous pagoda. The colours & paint work on the ceilings are amazing. Nice walk along an old part of the city wall as well.
