The Jinfeng was right in the center of a wonderful part of Nanchang. Next to us was a well known and busy restaurant that served a very spicy beef dish I couldn't get enough of. A small courtyard immediately off the main street in front of the hotel and restaurant was manned by two valets I tried speaking to every day but the language barrier was too great: Our guide had given us cards to show to locals explaining who we were and why we were there and while the valet understood my story, I was clueless on his.
A large concrete arch stood atop a small wall and passing through it put you on a winding back street filled with pedestrians and bikers. It also led to a small grocery store we visited every night.
Unique Quality: The people were really friendly. I quickly discovered that one thing advances communication more than any thing else: The exchange of money. I never had a problem understanding how much I had to pay for things and the clerks and waitstaffs were always smiling when I paid.
