Nanjing may now be known as the capital of the Jiangsu province, but once upon a time, it served as the capital of several Chinese dynasties, making it the hub of culture, economy, and education during these eras. Those days may be long gone, but remnants of these periods remain in the city. Arguably the most famous landmark there is the Sun Yat-Sen Mausoleum, which honors the Father of Modern China. The Confucius Temple, which honors one of the greatest philosophers of China, can also be found here. The Ming City Wall, one of the longest city walls, is also worth seeing, as is the Memorial Hall of Victims in Nanjing Massacre. These are only some of the important landmarks and attractions in the area. If you’re planning to visit, be sure to check this list for the best Airbnbs in Nanjing, China.

1. Minimalist condo (from USD 28)

Marie Kondo has become a hit in the recent months for her take on minimalism with a touch of joy.

Beyond aesthetics, the rental is also functional, coming with a full kitchen, a bathroom, laundry facilities, TV, and WiFi. There’s also paid parking available off-premises. The condo is close to the subway station, making this a convenient place to stay for commuters.
