I am visiting Shanghai in September and am looking for some side trips I can do from there. I already have a few places in mind, but was wondering if Nanjing is worth visiting, and if so would it make sense to go just for a day or 2? How long does it take to get there from Shanghai by train/bus?

my friend lived there for a year and taught english. he has millions of drinking stories from that place. if you're looking for having fun, then it may be worth a try! otherwise, i have no idea..haha. that's my two cents. have fun!

Might as well go to ZHEJIANG PROVINCE to visit HANGZHOU and the famous lake.

or suzhou, which is closer to Shanghai.

Hangzhou is better than Nanjin

Nanjing is a historical city in China, if you are interested in chinese history and culture, I recommade Nanjing, if you go there by express train from Shanghai, it takes you about 2 and a quarter, what do you do in China, you are a teacher? I am always on biz trip, if you have enough in China, I have many recommadations.

Definitely, I think Nanjing is a great city in China. It is a city with a lot of stories if you like history.

Awesome place. The pedestrain area around Fuzi temple is great, the canal boat trips, but the museum are the best (and I dont normaly like museums). The Nanjing Masacre Museum is incredible. Very confronting museum about the Japanes invasion where 300,000 people were killed, but very well done.

Good shopping, 1912 Bar area is brilliant.

I would definitely recommend
