Take Me There

China’s Qin­huai River mar­ries fu­tur­ist cool with un­for­get­table his­tory.

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - CONTENTS -

Il­lu­mi­nated by neon lights, the Qin­huai River in Nan­jing — 300 kilo­me­tres north-west of Shang­hai — looks like a tourist­friendly ver­sion of Blade Run­ner. But travel a short way up its waters and his­tory re­asserts it­self, with the an­cient Con­fu­cius Tem­ple and for­ti­fied Zhonghua Gate eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble.
