Lying in eastern Jiangsu, Nantong is the first
port city at the estuary of the Changjiang River, an important distribution
center of commodities in the Changjaing River Valley, and the birth
place of China's textile industry. There are Langshan Hill, Nanjiao
Park, Nantong Museum, the Museum of Textiles, and other tourist attractions.
Overlooking the Changjiang River, Langshan Hill together with Junshan
and Jianshan hills to its east and Ma'an and Huangni hills to its west
are collectively called the five hills. Standing on top of Langshan
Hill, one may have a panoramic view of the surrounding scenery with
water extending to the horizon. The main scenic attractions include
the Great Sage Hall and the Faru Hall.
