Nanjing is one of four great ancient capitals of China. Its epic influence and the tombs of Sun Yat Sen and the first Ming Dynasty Emperor can all be observed at Purple Mountain. During this very special day trip opportunity, the team from Shanghai and Beyond will share the stories of these legendary heroes as we explore the scenic paths and relics. Lunch will include Nanjing specialties such as tangbao dumplings, salted osthmanthus duck, and vegetarian delights. The Massacre Museum displays the viciousness and speed with which Japanese troops killed hundreds of thousands of Chinese citizens in a 1937 WWII nightmare. The political climate and background preceding this event will be discussed before we enter. *Purple mountain has many steps and is moderately strenuous.
