Nanjing is a thriving and growing city of over 8 million people, the capital city of the Jiangsu Province in East China. Nanjing is one of China’s few truly international cities, with a thriving expatriate community of around 20,000 people. It lies within China’s subtropical monsoon climate zone and enjoys four distinct seasons with an average temperature in the summer months of 30°. Spring and Autumn are the most comfortable seasons, and this is when most people can be found outdoors in parks, lakes and hiking paths – enjoying the breathtaking burst of colour from the pink and white blossom in the numerous plum orchards.

Nanjing has a lively nightlife scene, numerous shopping malls and a wide range of restaurants to suit all tastes. Sporting fixtures regularly take place in the city and there are mountains and hot springs within easy reach. China’s high-speed rail network connects Nanjing to most major cities within a few hours (Shanghai in one hour and nine minutes and Beijing in three hours and thirteen minutes). Nanjing Lukou International Airport offers routes to major destinations in China, Asia and around the world.
