Seems almost impossible, but today I will start my first trip to Mainland China. Have previously been to Hong Kong (twice) and Macao (once), but I am sure this is going to be a different experience.
My trip is to Nanjing (Nankin), in Chinese Characters it is 南京 , which means the southern Capital, which it was in the past. Since there are no daily direct flights to Nanjing, I’d have to connect through Shanghai (on my way) and Beijing (coming back), which makes the trip very long.
