      Purple-Gold Mountain (Zijin Shan) in Nanjing

      by cheezecake_deli Online Now Jan 25, 2014 at 12:47 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Nanjing, China in spring. I have some questions relating to the Purple-Gold Mountain (Zijin Shan) scenic area:
      1. Does anyone know where the cable car there takes you? I'm assuming it's the Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences at the top of the hill?
      2. Is it possible to walk/hike from the Observatory to Zixia Lake on the hill?
      Thanks in advance!

      Daytrip - Memorial and tombs

      by Karlie85 Online Now May 14, 2012 at 8:39 AM

      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.

    • restaurant where hot water is thrown across room into your cup of tea

      by yow2002 Online Now Jan 9, 2011 at 1:32 PM

      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?

      Nanjing Massacre Memorial Reopening 13th December 2007

      by ellyse Online Now Dec 7, 2007 at 8:54 PM

      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:

      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 and put "VirtualTourist" and your own username in the subject line so that I know who you are, thanks.

      But I need to go to Jiangyin now. Anyone know the right station ?
