The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge is a double-decker bridge across the Yangtze River and its upper deck is part of the China National Highway 104, the lower deck is the railway passage. This bridge is massive and impressive. This day it was overcast and light rain the entire day, but it was still worth the visit. This bridge is also one of the premier destinations for suicide which is not part of any tour group I’m sure. Nanjing is a very busy and it’s an important city commerce hub, but the real treat of Nanjing is the people and old world charm of this historical city.

We were on a bus tour through China, and this was leaving Nanjing after a long day of sightseeing. Nanjing is the capital of Jiangsu province in Eastern China, having been the capital of China on several occasions. Its present name means “Southern Capital”. With an urban population of over seven million (2011), Nanjing is the second-largest commercial center in the East China region after Shanghai, that is we were headed next. Being one of the four ancient capitals of China, Nanjing has always been a cultural center attracting intellectuals from all over the country. It’s definitely worth the visit; we really enjoyed it, the art, food, and great local beer!
