This is q good place to visit if you enjoy simple boating activities or a nice stroll along bodies of water. You can rent a paddle boat or get into one of those where an operator steers the boat for you. The lake is fairly...More

There is nothing special about this lake.It is meant for leisure seekers to do their DIY peddling of battery operated dinggy around the lake.

We found this place to be an oasis in the storm of life that Nanjing can have. Life is laid back in this massive park. If you want to relax and enjoy history and a way of life, then take half a day to enjoy...More

Just outside the old city walls, you can find Xuanwu Lake. Walk around the lakeshore, or just meander for a stretch and circle back toward the city proper. There are also bridges if you’d like to visit the islands in the middle of the lake....More

Just a lake but with a nice park and good views. You can take boat rides, would be good on a hot day I guess. Easy to combine with Jiming temple, the city walls and of course the park of the same name.

It was foggy and full of people when we were there, thus we were not able to feel and see the gorgeousness as shown in photos.

I go to this place frequently and it's nice because you can get away from the city environment and see traditional Chinese architecture, nature, and the Nanjing Wall. In fact, this is is one of the entry points for the wall if you want to...More
