Nanchang is the capital of Jiangxi Province in southeastern China. With a history of more than 2,200 years, Nanchang is not only an economic, scientific, and cultural center of Jiangxi but also an important railway hub connecting east and south of China. Located in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, Nanchang borders Hubei, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang in the north, Guangdong and Fujian in the south.
Nanchang is often called “the green pearl of southern China” thanks to its clear water, and fresh air. Lakes and rivers in or around the city bring a special kind of charm. The Gan River traversing through the whole city divides Nanchang into two parts. The two sides of the river represent the contrast between the traditional and the modern. Nanchang is peculiar in this divide of the old and the new, having a blend of customs, architecture, and lifestyles.
Despite its development and growth, Nanchang has preserved many cultural relics through its long and splendid history. The Pavilion of Prince Teng originally built in the 7th century AD has been the main landmark of the city and the pride of all the locals. Many scriptures and poems have been stored here throughout centuries forming the tremendous cultural legacy of the place.
Besides, Nanchang is known for its delicious food. The traditional Nanchang Cuisine (Gan or Jiangxi Cuisine) has always played an important role in Chinese food culture. Gan Cuisine favors spicy tastes where chili peppers are often used as vegetables rather than spices to enhance the flavor. Local snacks are very diverse and worth trying too!
