We visit Nanjing, China for the 20th episode of the Traveling for 20 Dollars a Day series! Join us as we eat tons of street food and hang out with Nanjing locals. Thanks to Raven, my local friend and guide, we learned some local Nanjing dialect and uncovered hidden gems throughout the city. Also, Curtis is back!
How we spent our day traveling in Nanjing:
We met at Zhongshan Wharf (中山码头) and took the ferry to Pukou District (the oldest district in Nanjing). After enjoying some outdoor shenanigans, we had breakfast at the legendary Daxi Wonton (大喜馄饨摊).
Later, we enjoyed a feast at Nanjing Dapaidang (南京大排档) on Hunan Road. In the afternoon, we walked around Xuanwu Lake (玄武湖) and caught a glimpse of the Ming Great Wall(明城墙).
Next, we ventured over to Yihe Road(颐和路), then visited the Librairie Avant-Garde (先锋书店五台山店), one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world.
In the evening, we had an ocean-sized bowl of pig skin noodles at a family noodle shop, then headed over to Laoyang Cigarette Booth(老杨烟摊) for some fun times. We sipped beers, laughed lots, and lived like young rebels without a cause.
Finally, we made our way to the hostel, where we had a bunk bed waiting for us. What an amazing day it was, and we did it all for less than $20USD (138RMB)!
