Nanjing proved to be a lovely escape from the urban chaos of Shanghai. Despite the sometimes overwhelming swarms of tourists, the city's enormous scenic areas are stunning distractions. It is a small but bustling city, and while I probably won't need a return trip anytime soon, I highly recommend a visit to anyone who hasn't already done so. Read on for more highlights from this beautiful trip!
