We're planning on going to Nanjing for a day from Shanghai, not staying overnight. We're most interested in seeing the Massacre Memorial. Wondering if we also have time to see the Ming tombs at Purple Mountain. How to get between the two sites, etc? Is there anywhere we could have lunch around either of those places? Our hotel is arranging the train tickets for us and gave us a return time of 7pm. We would probably leave Shanghai at 8am taking the fast train.
Nanjing will be our next to last stop on a three-month trip. WE are tired! We are looking for a hotel where we can really relax. We saw some resort hotels listed but couldn't find a web site for they. They were all with hotel broker. Any suggestions? Thanks...
I was in Nanjing about 12 years ago. I was taken to a restaurant where the waiter "threw" the hot water into your tea from across the room. It was from a large pot of water that is strapped to the waiter's shoulder. The waiter throws a small amount of water (from anywhere in the room) and it lands in your cup and only a few drops may land on the table. I can't find any mention of this on the internet. In my opinion, this should be an olympic sport. It is amazing to see. Has anyone seen this?
Hey! Me and my friend will be in Shanghai in a little less than two weeks and around the second of January we want to travel from Shanghai to Nanjing by train. I've heard that you have to book train tickets two weeks in advance? Does anyone have any experience with ordering these tickets online? I've found a couple of websites via seat61.com, but I'm not sure which one to pick. Hope someone can help me, thanks in advance!

As the subject line says, the Nanjing Massacre Memorial will be reopening on 13th December 2007, after being closed for renovations for more than a year. Nanjing Massacre Memorial official English-language website: http://www.nj1937.org/english This date is the customary anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre, and 2007 will be the 70th year. I have been to this memorial at least twice before it was closed for renovation. I can only say that it is a place that any visitor to Nanjing should definitely visit. It is a place that holds a special significance for Nanjing's history and also for China's; and even more so for the tens of thousands who lost their innocent lives there. It stands as a reminder to never take peace for granted; peace that has been only been achieved after the deaths and suffering of an unthinkable amount of people. This is a memorial for those who died wanting peace, but who were unfortunately unable to enjoy it, unlike us today. A group of friends and I will be making a trip on Thu-Fri 13-14/12 from Shanghai. If anyone is interested in joining us, or is interested in going on a later date, please feel free to contact me for more information. Email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "VirtualTourist" and your own username in the subject line so that I know who you are, thanks.
still new in this place of nanjing, and things are puzzling me with the following questions? where can I get a detailed english nanjing map? where can I have my facial care that is not that expensive in xinjiekou or da zhao nanlu? where can I take the shuttle bus going to METRO SHOP (a big department store) Where can I eat barbequ lamb? they said there is one in wangfudajie? Thanks.
I'm baffled by the many long distance busses in Nanjing. It seems like you can go almost anywhere, but I never know where to start. So far, I know that to go South, go to the Zhonghuamen atation, and to go NE, go to the station near to the northern train station. But I need to go to Jiangyin now. Anyone know the right station ?
I'm looking for some characteristic traditional accommodation in Nanjing (and also Suzhou, Hangzhou, Huangshan and Shanghai for that matter) but whatever I try only modern concrete block hotels turn up in my search results. Is it just bad luck or such places really don't exist? Thanks a lot in advance!

I have been to shanghai and beijing, but intend to travel to Nanjing this June 2007. Does anyone reading this know where I could shop for fabric/material (silk/linen/coton?) sold in meters? Usually they are displayed in rolls, and to are sold in meters. Anyone please help. Thank you.
I plan to stay at Nanjing Danfeng International Hotel, 59-1 Yushi Street, North Floor 5, Nanjing, when I visit a few weeks from now. This hotel rates seem low, about USD9 for a single private w/o bath but is it in a good central location in Xinjiekou? Is there a better one I should consider? Oh yes, where can I find the airport shuttle bus at Nanjing airport to go downtown Xinjiekou? I don't want to spring for a taxi(Y150 I've heard) since I'm travelling alone. Details on how to take the airport bus, transfers, etc. greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Anyone know the address or whereabouts of the Rising Sun Anger Release Bar in Nanjing?
