One of the three

One of the three hills one should see being in Zhenjiang. Not too much people, nice view, typical architecture. And nothing more to do in this city.

The island is a wonderful place to spend part of a day taking in the grand history, beautiful gardens and temple. The hike up the mountain to the Pagoda is worth the effort but be prepared for a little climb. Construction was underway to make the experience even better but that did not spoil our day. Plan to spend several... More

The park is lovely and the temples are beautiful. If you like Buddhism, you'll love this place. Tickets to the park are 50 RMB, which includes the ferry ride to the island. The island itself is quite lovely, and decorated with many Buddhist temples and buildings. There are very few choices for food or snacks on the island, so it's... More

Jiaoshan is a small island. You need to purchase a ticket from the main land ticket booth and it cost only 25rmb (we got it half price as we are above 60 and the Chinese granted us the discount notwithstanding that we are not Chinese citizens, the full price is 50rmb, not as much as 100rmb as reflected in one...

Jiaoshan boasts the 2nd largest beilin (numerous stone tablets with calligraphy insciptions) in China, ranking only after the one in Xi'an. But pitifully we could not stay long to appreciate the tablets, as mosquitoes on the island are ferocious.

I once spent two days in Zhenjiang.A beautiful city, a combination of the ancient and modern. I've been to three famous mountains in Zhenjiang, named Jinshan Mountain, Jiaoshan Mountain and Beigu Mountain. Jinshan is famous for the folklore, a really romantic but sad love story. Beigu Mountain has a profound cultural and historical background, but I don’t know much about... More

When the Qing Dynasty emperor, Qianglong, visited Zhenjiang in the late 18th century, he famously pronounced that he preferred Jiaoshan Hill to its more fancied Zhenjiang rival, Jinshan Hill. But having visited both, we are ready to side with the emperor: Jiaoshan Hill, actually an island floating in the Yangtze River, is more beautiful and relaxing. We recommend visiting both... More

This is a place to go to get some peace and quiet from the city. It is lovely to visit and the history with it is so interesting. The island tried to defend Zhenjiang again the British in the Opium War. A must see!

This is a AAAA national tourist site that receives little publicity. The ferry and entry fee to the island are 60rmb. The ferry is mostly standing only but it is a two minute trip. There is a temple, a pagoda, a hill climb, rock gardens, an old fort, a forest of stelae and numerous other nooks and crannies to explore... More

Jiaoshan is actually an island in the Yangtze River. A ferry will take you to the from the bank to the island. In the past there was also a cable car but it has been dismantled.
