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

or suzhou, which is closer to Shanghai.

Actually, I am also thinking about Nanjing, Im off to Shanghai very soon. I have seen photos of Nanjing in the newspaper last year and I'm expecting it to be shiny and new, and then some spaces will be ancient.

i made it Nanjing, and yes it is worth it....

I just got from the war memorial... i hate war memorials, but I love architecture and great lightings, and the sculpture gardens...

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?

Not really. Hangzhou might be a better choice. 1.5 hour by express train.

I spend a week in Nanjing last month...

and when I look back, I liked it better than Shanghai. I dont know if its just psychological, but Shanghai feels like it is so HUGE, while the central part of Nanjing has the feel of a small city. Its the same feeling I got when I visited Hangzhou. I tree lined streets, and this cities this nice huge trees on the streets.

Its subway has only one line and I love that!
You dont feel lost and you think you can see everything.

nanjing deserves paying a visit. it's too hot in summer and too cold in winter, the optimun time should be in between.
it has a lot of historic ruins there, u can especially trace the ming dynasty architectural flavour. it's a great city.
