'''Zhenjiang''' is a city in [[Jiangsu]] province.
 
==Understand==
 
This is a fairly minor city, perhaps best known as the girlhood home of Nobel prize winning writer Pearl Buck.
==Get in==
Zhenjiang is on the major train line connecting the major cities of Nanjing and Shanghai. It can therefore be easily reached from either side by both regular train and the faster bullet trains. The cost ranges from 13¥13-30 RMB (regular train) to 30¥30-75 RMB (bullet train).
Zhenjiang is also easily reached by bus from other nearby cities. Buses are slightly cheaper than the train, but can take up to twice as long to reach their destination.
==Get around==
Taxis are the most convenient while buses are the most affordable. The base fare for a taxi is 9 RMB, and most areas of the city can be reached from the Zhenjiang Railroad Station for less than 30 RMB. Bus routes are traveled by both normal and air-conditioned buses from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. The bus fare is 1-3 RMB.

 Four major parks in Zhenjiang provide the most common destinations to tourists. Entrance to each park is between 30 and ¥30-50 RMB, and the parks with pagodas charge another entrance fee (about 10 RMB¥10) if you wish to climb the pagoda.
Jiaoshan Park is located on a small island in the Yangtze River and includes a large pagoda, peacock farm, and many winding paths through dense foliage. Bamboo forests partially cover the island.
==Eat==
 
Zhenjiang is known for producing the best vinegar in China. Most major cities situated nearby provide Zhenjiang vinegar whenever dumplings are served. Steamed dumplings with the famous vinegar can be found on almost every block in town.
