About City

Nanjing (南京; Nánjīng), historically also Nanking, is the capital city of Jiangsu Province in the People's Republic of China. It is situated in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River and is the central city of the lower Yangtze Basin.

Know More
Nanjing means "southern capital" (versus Beijing meaning "northern capital".) It is a renowned historical and cultural city and was the capital of several dynasties over the course of Chinese history. It has many historical sites including Ming tombs that are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It was most recently the capital of China under the Kuomintang, from 1927 until their retreat to Taiwan in 1949, and is still officially the capital of Republic of China (Taiwan), which retreated to Taiwan but still declares itself the sole legitimate government of China. With a current urban population of approximately 5 million people, Nanjing is an important centre for commerce and trade in Eastern China.

Nanjing has a humid subtropical climate, influenced by the East Asian Monsoon. It is one of the 3 members of China's Three Furnaces along with Wuhan and Chongqing, both of them known for their hot and muggy summers with Nanjing being no exception. The average July temperature is 28.1°C (82.6°F). Daily highs usually surpass 32°C (90°F) which along with the the humidity (80%), can make the heat unbearable. On the other hand, summers are sunnier than winters and all of precipitation (which is a lot due to the summer monsoon) falls as downpours leaving enough time for the sun to come out. 35°C (95°F) or above readings, usually occur sometimes but long hot periods are rare. The highest recorded temperature is 40.7°C (105.3°F). Hot summers, though, doesn't mean warm winters. Winters in Nanjing are cold, colder in fact than many cities along the Yangtze River Basin, like Wuhan, Changsha or Shanghai. This happens, because the city doesn't have any geographical barriers to protect it from the freezing northern siberian winds (Wuhan and Changsha are both protected by mountains, while Shanghai is a coastal city). The average January temperature is 2.7°C (36.9°F) and night lows are usually around freezing point. Cold waves affect the area and mornings with below -5°C (23°F) temperatures aren't uncommon. The lowest recorded temperature is -14°C (7°F). Light snow does fall at least once a year but major snowstorms are rare with the last one being in January 3rd 2018. Overall the best time of the year to visit Nanjing is April-May when it's neither cold nor hot and there is an acceptable amount of sunshine.

By plane
Nanjing's Lukou International Airport is about 35km from the city centre and serves inbound international flights from Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Germany. You can also fly to Lukou International from most major cities in China, including Hong Kong (Shanghai now also has a daily night-time flight from Pudong primarily aimed at connecting international travellers.) There is a shuttle bus available from the airport.
