Why you should visit Nanjing during Chinese New Year

Why you should visit Nanjing during Chinese New Year

Nanjing local Frank Hossack promises you’re in for a surprise.


✈  Why did you start to record stories about Nanjing?

As the city has started to take its place on the world stage, it also needed English media. The Nanjinger tells stories about China, from a western perspective.

✈  Winter in Nanjing, chilling or magical?

Chinese New Year leaves Nanjing with five million fewer residents; the resulting “ghost city” is both chilling and magical.

✈  What’s the most special thing about life in China?

The way that it forces you to look differently at everything you have ever believed.

✈  Share a city secret?

The crowds flock to Purple Mountain but I much prefer Laoshan National Park.

The Yangtze River wetlands are protected for migratory cranes.
