  • I was recently on business in Nanjing and, having a couple of hours free, with colelghi we visited this area really characteristic and suggestive. Traditional Chinese temples, clubs where you sell a little bit of everything, rickshaw for sightseeing, historical buildings, statues, bridges and barges on the River, a large number of people, stalls. A mixture of culture, tradition and vitality of a people who never stopped. A rush of positive energy. Many facilities have been redone but keeping the traditional style and not thereby tarnishing the allure. Recommend a walk in this area, in two hours you can do it. Recommend a visit to the Confucius Temple and in many retail stores than you or candied fruits.
