    Shika Temple scenic area is at night is beautiful. Lit and lighted building the Qin huaihe also is ornate. I think I'd from the Zhonghua gate near the promenade along the River a little walk from Zhonghua gate in the evening. Location is just there, and stayed at the Mandarin Hotel was close to the Miao.

    There is an awesome atmosphere here - especially at night. Go around 6pm when it's just getting dark, and you can get some great photos. It's very busy (like many places in China!), but in a good way....  more »

Where to stay in Nanjing

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Nanjing, a modern metropolis long on the radars of domestic and international tourists. Look south of the main railway station, following Central Road, to find the primary districts where visitors stay, with clusters of high-rise hotels--some luxurious and others standard, but all comfortable. A number of smaller boutiques set in formerly residential buildings provide atmospheric, well-maintained, and budget-friendly options. Take a look at the side streets around Central Road for a wealth of hostels and guesthouses.
