Life in Nanjing

Here are some hints and tips for living, working and studying in Nanjing:

As Nanjing is the capital city of Jiangsu Province in eastern China, its style of food doesn’t deviate too much from the original Jiangsu Province cuisine. Nanjing’s traditional food tends to be brightly colored and lightly flavored with modest seasoning, with a significant amount of oil. Some of the most famous Nanjing dishes are based on duck and river fish or shrimp. Examples include Nanjing salted duck and duck oil pancakes. Other specialty food can be found in specialty food shops. Of course, it’s still possible to find western food in Nanjing as it’s becoming such a vibrant city!
