Jiangxi Province's

NANCHANG

   

Description : Called "the poor person's Beijing" Nanchang is indeed a province capital with little attractions. It has got some charm instead...

Comments : There is no reason to come here but there is sometimes no choice as Nanchang is a major transport hub. Anyway, you could be stuck in a much worse place.

What to do : Buy a train or bus ticket / Go see the only real sight : the huge Tengwang Pavilion on the bank of the Gan River (Y20, Exp) / From there, walk toward the town center, the shopping mall, parks and monuments dedicated to the glory of communism /Meet friendly locals /     

What you may not like : Having to stop here / The difficulty to get a sleeper train ticket for some destinations (be patient & stubborn) /Meet too friendly locals girls around the train station /
