Take a walk through the vast park centered around Xuanwu lake, sprinkled with small, verdant islands that are linked by bridges. Have a lakeside picnic in the shade of ginkgo and cherry blossom trees, or on one of the scenic islets, home to numerous bird species, flowers, and lotus ponds. Take a boat ride on the lake and enjoy strolling through the rose and peony gardens, bamboo groves, and willow trees of the islets.

  • A picturesque place in the center of Nanjing. One can have a pleasant walk on a warm sunny day. Peaceful and quiet. Amazing sunsets.  more »
  • Xuanwu Lake I don't really play, just in the evening and my boyfriend walked for a while, the lake listened to the song. Such a lake, China is not uncommon, so I look also nothing special, but as a meal after a good place to digestion.

  • Best place near lake...enjoy kite festival here...view sunset fabulous feeling with nature
  • Went with my girlfriend today and spent a few hours there. We took a little tour bus for ¥30 each and it lasted about 20-30min I think. They stopped twice for us to get out and the 2nd time was when the tour was over. We walked around the gardens and island all the way to where there was a pagoda. They have boat rides which were too much money and you have to pay to go on the wall which we weren't gonna pay for. Plenty of little souvenir stands and places to eat and drink.
  • Windy and nice
  • good view and it's Free.
  • 玄武湖是天然湖泊。但是也許成為觀光區,美景比較人工化,也也許是觀光客比較多,環境有點髒亂,不是我個人喜歡的天然美景。湖旁有些賣小吃的攤販。有收費環湖車可搭。
