Zhenjiang Overview

Located about 15 minutes by train from Changzhou and an hour by bus from Nanjing, Zhenjiang, which literally means "Garrison of the River," is a small prefecture-level city located on the Grand Canal, currently known for its production of Xiangcu vinegar.

Also known as the former Chinese home of Pulitzer-prize winning author Pearl S. Buck, Zhenjiang's profile has dropped a bit since its heyday as Jiangsu's capital (1928-1949), but today is home to a rather busy domestic port, serving as a trade hub between Anhui, Jiangsu and Shanghai.

Its latest claim to fame is as 2009 host of the MIDI rock festival, usually held in Beijing.
