9787502238766: Nanjing: A Cultural and Historical Guide for Travelers

In recent years, Nanjing's tourism industry has maintained a steady and impressive rate of growth, and the city has become one of the main tourist destinations in eastern China for travelers visiting from abroad. In order to introduce Nanjing to the world, the Nanjing Tourism Bureau has blazed a new trail by inviting the American author Roy Kesey to write this book, China through the Looking Glass: Nanjing. In it, he interprets the ancient culture and radiant scenery of Nanjing through a foreigner's eyes.
