Nanjing (Chinese: ÄÏ¾©; Romanizations: N¨¢nj¨©ng (Pinyin), Nan-ching (Wade-Giles), Nanking (Postal map spelling)) is the capital of China's Jiangsu Province, and a city with a prominent place in Chinese history and culture. Nanjing served as the capital of China during several historical periods, including as the former capital city of Republic of China, and is listed as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. Nanjing is also one of the fifteen sub-provincial cities in the People's Republic of China's administrative structure, enjoying jurisdictional and economic autonomy only slightly less than that of a province. In addition, the Republic of China claims it as its de jure capital.
Located in the downstream Yangtze River drainage basin and Yangtze River Delta economic zone, Nanjing has always been one of China's most important cities. Apart from having been the capital of China for six dynasties and of the Republic of China, Nanjing has also served as a national hub of education, research, transportation and tourism throughout history. With an urban population of over five million, it is also the second largest commercial center in the East China region, behind only Shanghai.

Shanghai is famous for being a word which means kidnapping.
It is also famous for having mainland China's most expensive taxis and whores, lots of bars and many many tall buildings.
The traditional food in Shanghai is oily and sweet, and many people say it tastes like dog shit. Luckily there are many great restaurants featuring food from other places.
Shanghai people are notorious for being rude and Shanghai men also have a reputation for being a bit girly. At a push the average Shanghai guy weighs in at about 48kg which makes it a great place to go for a fight! Watch out though, a recent scrap outside the Guangdi nightclub saw quite a few Western folks outnumbered and running with their tail between their legs. Better luck next time eh!
Shanghai is definitely the most happening city in China at the moment, with an emerging live music scene, lots of parties and concerts and a promising outlook on the property front.
Moron: Hey I'm going to Taipei!
Everyone else: Really, I hear that Taipei is a slurry ridden shit pit for people who can't hack the pace of Shanghai city life...
Moron: Yeah that's right, you've been there?
Everyone else: No fear! I wouldn't touch Taipei with a pointed stick.
Shanghainese, often known as the Shanghai Dialect is the largest single mutually intelligible form of Wu Chinese - the collection of languages spoken in the Jiangsu and Zhejiang areas of eastern China.
To the untrained Western ear the language sounds much like a swarm of live wasps being farted out of a screaming bulldog, which is also what it sounds like to other speakers of Chinese who are not from Shanghai or the surrounding region.
It is true that Chinese persons native to Shanghai look down on other Chinese who can not speak the dialect. However since most Shanghai men wouldn't fare too well in the ring after three rounds against a wet sock, they're not likely to put up much of a protest if you tell them to sod off.
Shanghainese is the language to learn if you are a ranting old lady or a whiney little twat
