Jiangsu

Jiangsu, the biggest province of China is located on the country’s east coast and is called “Su” for short. The province is a place of rivers, prosperous economy, advanced education and flourishing culture. At a point in time, Jiangsu cities such as Nanjing and Suzhou were the birthplaces of capitalism in China, mainly in smelting and forging technology of bronze wares and subsequently in the silk, textile, flour and coal mining industries. 

Jiangsu possesses cultural and geographical features of four regions including Kingdom of Wu, Jinling, Huaiyang and Central Plain, all of which have ancient history dating back more than 6,000 years. The province is endowed with lots of tourism resources and plenty of historic sites. The most popular tourism attractions include renowned resorts such as the historical site of six dynasties, Classical Gardens of Suzhou, landscape of the Taihu Lake, Bamboo Sea of Yixing, historic relics of the Qin and Han dynasties in Suzhou, mountains and waters in the seaside city of Lianyungang, plain landscape of Huai’an, and the beautiful scenes of the water town Zhouzhuang. 

Visitors traveling here can enjoy such sceneries as: the Yangtze River flowing from the west to the east; the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal crossing the southern and northern parts of China; the vast and misty Taihu Lake and Hongze Lake; picturesque and delicate Slender West Lake; Xuanwu Lake; Yunlong Lake as well as Langshan Mountain; Jinshan Mountain; Beigu Mountain along the Yangtze River and the magnificent Zijin Mountain as well as the mysterious Mountain of Flowers and Fruits, to name only a few.
