NANJING (Jiangsu Province) -- area code +86-25


General Information

    Nanjing is just two and a half hours northwest of Shanghai by bullet train and its population is over 5 million (there are about 200,000 Utopians here). The city is clean and tidy, with major avenues graced by canopies of parasol shade trees imported from France. Lots of traditional architecture remains, including the Xuyuan Garden and Zhanyuan pleasure gardens. Even contemporary housing projects incorporate the local white wall and black tile style with geometric roof finials. Together with its large lake, winding river moat, and nearby Purple Golden Mountain park, Nanjing is harmonized with its surroundings. A former imperial capital, the city is rich in history, including the sad fate of hundreds of thousands of its citizens who died during the brutal Japanese invasion of China.

    If you visit in late Feb, early Mar, don't miss Plum Blossom Hill, where thousands of pink and white plum trees bloom. During the annual Spring Festival, incorporating Chinese New Year, the Confucian Temple shopping area (Fuzi Miao) is decked out with auspicious red lanterns, large illuminated folk sculptures made from silk, and traditional folk toy vendors. Take an evening boat ride from the pier to view the charming, illuminated waterways. Most of Nanjing's gay bars are also just a short walk away.

Massage for Men

      Comments from Utopians:

      "I contacted Chenxu (WeChat: njspavic) and booked a 90-min full body massage. I didn't expect too much, as I heard that the mainland guys were quite paltry with the massage. However, this wasn't the case when it came to Chenxu. Overall conclusion, amazing. I absolutely loved the whole experience. Chenxu is a very humble, yet handsome, young man, highly skilled, careful, and he speaks English very well. The way of his massage combines traditional Chinese style with a bit of Thai style, really helpful to my soreness. In the end, it was like heaven." -- Johnson, Jun 4, 2019

      "There is a nice gay massage place near Nanjing Railway Station. WeChat: njspavic to check it out. Green, legal, sensual, relaxing." -- Chenxu, Apr 4, 2019
