Nanjing is doing a lot of things right.
Bike lanes take up healthy portions of the road, there’s a new and expanding metro, & the city’s rich history is everywhere visible.
The Qinhuai River is another of them. The river cuts through the centre of the city & runs from gussied-up tourist tracks through to more crowded & utilitarian passages.
Beijing’s Ancient Observatory, of course smothered in smog.
Speaking of the Lama Temple, it was beautiful.
