    Hello Hanne,

    No direct subway line linking Nanjing airport and Nanjing South Railway Station. It is better to take a taix from the airport to the train station: 33Km, about 40-minute taxi drive and approximately RMB 100

    I would like to arrive at Nanjing South, visit the Memorial Hall of the Nanjing Massacre and return to Nanjing South to catch a train for Suzhou. Can you advise me please how long it will take on the subway to the Memorial Hall from Nanjing South, and whether I can leave my luggage at the station?
    Many thanks
