  • The Park is located on the shore of the eponymous Lake in the city. Very good place for recreation, where citizens engage in sports, dancing and singing, which gives a distinctive national character.

  • The lake is very big, the first time here to open a boat, and friends laugh and laugh at the pour is also very interesting. If you don't want to open a boat, it's a good choice to walk along the lakeshore.

  • In a 3-minute walk from the Metro station, Xuanwumen is Xuanw Park, screened off from the bustle of the high city wall, erected back in the year 1388. Very pleasant and picturesque place! Even in December here very beautifully-larch with palms and other trees, a huge Lake with water a pleasant colors, neat paths amidst trees near water and everything is so neat and beautiful! On the Lake you can ride on a pedal boat or a boat.

  • Definitely I will revisit here again. I have a family photo with parents when I was infant. Standing in front of a "Long" dragon made of grass. Now 30 years passed, my parents with white hair and getting old. I am the age of them in the photo. We have lived oversea since 2 decades from China. I hope one day, my child and my parents can take a new photo.
  • In early winter, it had a very pleasant atmosphere despite the rain & cold. Place was full of history
  • A beautiful park that is enjoyable both when it is busy and when few people are there.
  • A beautiful little park if you need to relax.
  • I took the bus to visit the park because It was raining but It's better to walk around.

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.
