Qin Huai River, Nanjing

3.6
#3 of 18 in Nature in Nanjing
The lifeblood of Nanjing city, Qin Huai River has shaped local life since Neolithic times. Channeled towards the city in the third century BCE, the river has since given life to a bustling spot where culture and commerce meet. An important tributary of the Yangtse River, a number of prestigious temples have been built on the river banks, most notably Confucius Temple. Take a boat tour along the river to enjoy Nanjing by day or night, checking out a range of different wharfs as you go. You can stroll along river banks and sample local cuisine amid traditinal buildings, or visit a local market on the riverside. Cross the 700-year-old bridge and admire the scenery of the city from above the water. For Qin Huai River and beyond, use our Nanjing trip builder app to get the most from your Nanjing vacation.
