China knows how to do parks and this is no exception. Beautiful trees, lots of things to see, all manner of people to watch. Everything from young children’s funfair to arboreal oases of tranquility. Four or five islands joined by short bridges, each a little...More

XuanWu Park is a park that mixes the blue color of the water and the green color of plants. This park gives a great view on the city of Nanjing and it's a cool place for photomaniacs.

A must do when you go to Nanjing! There's lots to see and do here. You can rent boats, paddle boats, go hiking, and picnic. I wish they had more food shops in the area so we could have had a picnic. It gets crowded...More
