Nanjing, China

Located in the downstream Yangtze River drainage basin and Yangtze River Delta economic zone, Nanjing has always been one of China's most important cities. Apart from having been the capital of China for six dynasties and of the Republic of China, Nanjing has also served as a national hub of education, research, transportation and tourism throughout history. With an urban population of over five million, it is also the second largest commercial center in the East China region, behind only Shanghai.

If you don´t know Nanjing means South Capital at the same time Beijing means North Capital.
The weather in Nanjing is very similar to the others city in the east cost, so has a humid subtropical climate, and is under the influence of the East Asia Monsoon, so again we had a really hot time there, and as you can appreciate in the picture there are like a flog always.

Also there is a really long bridge which Cross the Yangtze River, where there are a lot of industrials boats.
