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.

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.
