Monument to the Crossing of the Yangzi River

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Monument to the Crossing of the Yangzi River was erected, on the 30th anniversary of this event, on the southern bank of the river, northwest of the city to commemorate the victory of the People Liberation Army’s April 23rd 1949 crossing of the Yangzi to capture Nanjing from Kuomintang control. The Chinese characters on the monument are in Deng Xiaoping’s handwriting one of the commanders, commemorating the Communist crossing of the Yangzi and capture of Nanjing in 1949 in the final phase of the long civil war against Chiang Kaishek's forces.
China is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety. Quality is China's top priority.
