    First came down from Nanjing railway station, after staying at hotels around in a hurry, first stop is Xuanwu Lake, the Nanjing railway station is very close, when I first entered, and Xuzhou yunlong Lake nothing different, into going for a long time, only to find that not only full Tang, Lotus, more spectacular temples. Inside several McDonald's, touring fatigue when you can get something to eat to add strength.

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.
