We visited this place one late afternoon around the first week of December. The place comes alive in the evening when they turn the decorative lanterns along the river on. Crowded but well worth the visit. Aside from strolling down the old street lined with...More

This was one of the most famous place to visit in Nanjing, but now just a flee market. The buildings still look okay, but all they are selling junks. That makes the entire area looks really low. There are some good restaurants in the area...More

Too crowded though. But plenty of food options and souvenirs to purchase. Nan sold was very delicious. Which seem to have derived from Indian nan bread.

But crowded. Like most you'll see in China. It's still similar to most of the ancient towns there. The surrounding and residential area, though, is quiet and nice. Worth a walk along the canals.

The place is well restored and commercialised. Located right at the heart of the city central. The 秦淮river cut across the place. Beautiful for photography.

We made a point to visit the Mauseleum as it is for a human with spirirual achievements achievable only with discipline and perseverance. Confucius has taught us to seek the light. The many visitors do not allow for meditation within the grounds.

A "temple" to remember the great thinker, philosopher and teacher. Well-curated display of all things related to Confucius and some of his disciples. If you are visting the area including the Confucian Temple, you should leave this to be the last because the other attractions...More

Buildings are the only authentic feature at this tourist spot. Shops, restaurants, souvenir stores are all commercialised. Products are of shoddy quality. Service is poor and in some cases non-existent. A shop keeper kept speaking on the cell phone while I stood in chilly wind...More
