Jiangsu Province

Things to see and do Jiangsu Province China

Jiangsu Province.

For years overshadowed by nearby Shanghai, Jiangsu Province finds itself more and more in demand with the curious traveller. After all, this is where you’ll see the most charming section of China’s Grand Canal, along with a handful of ancient water towns. Moreover, Jiangsu is home to the gorgeous city of Suzhou, the so called “Venice of China”.

Famed for its silk industry, salt production, opera and ancient gardens, Jiangsu also has UNESCO caves, gargantuan lakes and endless temples. Furthermore, there’s the Lingshan Grand Buddha and let’s not forget Nanjing, consistently championed as one of the country’s most liveable cities.
