Zhenjiang, seventy kilometers west of Nanjing, lies on the south bank of the Yangtze River in central Jiangsu Province. The Beijing-Shanghai Railway passes the city, and the Grand Canal and the Yangtze River meet here.
An ancient city with a history going back 2,500 years, Zhenjiang occupies a strategic position, being screened on three sides by the Jinshan, Beigu, and Jiaoshan hills (from west to east). Although the hills are only about a hundred metres high, they appear to rise majestically beside the Yangtze.
