The nightlife is wonderful! The river is beautifully lit. Very pedestrian friendly area. The Temple itself is worth the price of admission too.

The Confucius Temple is quite nice and the area is great for an evening stroll next to the river. There is history in the temple; however, the area is quite crowded. I recommend trying a snack from one of the many local restaurants in the...More

This is a restored history market. Always crowded and very noisy. There are numerous shops to sell cheap toys and antique. Many of them carry identify stuff. Some restored historic buildings are interesting. Kids probably will love those toys. There are also quite a few...More
