Nanjing 3 day break ideas?

Recommended Posts

Wahed

We have our first break this weekend from Thursday evening until Sunday. I was thinking of a trip to Yunnan (Kunming). If I don’t have enough time, then I was thinking somewhere closer such as Suzhou, Hangzhou, and/or Shanghai etc. Thoughts, suggestions?

Save Yunnan for another trip when you have more time.

 

Suzhou is nice and very easy to reach. Visit Yangzhou at some point, too.

 

There're also Huangshan and Taishan/Qufu to consider.

I've already climbed Taishan but Huangshan sounds like fun. I don't know about Yangzhou though, I don't think I've seen any notable outdoor activities (ie caves, mountains, hiking, etc.). It seems mostly geared towards gardens, temples, etc.

No, Yangzhou is in the Suzhou/Hangzhou realm you mentioned.

 

In the relatively nearby Taishan/Huangshan realm you also have Jiuhuashan.

 

If you're into tea stuff there's the Dingshan pottery village near Yixing. Further afield in this realm there's Jingdezhen.

 

Lots of small water villages dotted around. Get one of those guidebooks to 中国古城.

 

Indeed, getting guidebooks to nearby areas at your nearby bookstore would provide a practical aspect to your Chinese studies.

If you're interested in seeing any of the gardens in Suzhou, be there when they open first thing in the morning before the hordes descend.

Even though the school holidays are now over, this is a public-holiday weekend and the sights are likely to be very crowded.
