Zhenjiang Travel Guide
Zhenjiang, translate as "Garrison of the River," is a city with a history of 2,500 years. Sitting on the southern bank of Yangtze River, the city borders Jiangsu Province's capital Nanjing, and Changzhou and Yangzhou. As a transportation hub, Zhenjiang is one of the busiest ports in the nation and is connected to Shanghai and Nanjing by the Beijing -Shanghai rail route and the Yangtze River freight and passenger transport routes. The city has a population of 2.67 million and covers an area of 3,847 square kilometers. Under the influences of Asian monsoons and the Yangtze River, Zhenjiang enjoys a subtropical climate with distinct seasons.
Many fascinating tales and mythologies surround the city in Chinese history. One of the most intriguing legends in Chinese folklore, the "Tale of the White Snake," depicts a fantastic love story of a magical, 1,000-year-old snake spirit that reunites with her human lover. Another story involves the first emperor of the Qin dynasty, Qin Shi Huang, who believed that Zhenjiang's location contained too strong a spiritual force, as determined by Fengshui, a Chinese belief system. So the emperor ordered 3,000 prisoners to dig a tunnel through a hill to divert the power from the city.
Zhenjiang is now a major city with a booming economy and protected environment in Yangtze River Delta Economical Zone. With its legendary tales, the city has become a well-known historical and cultural city in China as well. With its natural beauty, Zhenjiang welcomes visitors from all around the world.
