Art Museum
By KLUE | 8/6/2006 6:26:05 PM

The Nanjing Museum is a wonderful place to spend a lot of time. I got stuck in a most fascinating art (contemporary painter)show that I spent two days just the show. So be sure to check out the temporary exhibits as well as the permanent collections. Also, the book store is a wonderland of books on Chinese art and I bought many volumes which will never be seen in the US. Additionally, there is a very lovely, quiet, air conditioned lunch, tea, ice cream parlor right next to the Museum.

This applies to all the major cities in China. The best food in China comes from the local street vendors or small resturants. They are usually cheap and delicious. Do not go to well established posh looking resturants. My experience usually tells me that they are either too westernised or too unsuited to my taste. However this is my opinion and the choice is yours. But then you didn't go to China to have a ham sandwich or a salad did you?

Temple of Confucius
By EASTEFEN | 5/24/2004 3:21:35 PM

I didnt go here by day as my friend told me there was nothing worth seeing. He said 'meet me at 6pm' which I did, and we had a 'lovely stroll' down the street lined with clothes shops, snack food outlets, music blaring out loud on the speakers and then stopped in KFC which was opposite McDonalds for a cup of tea as it was a cold night! So as you can see, things have changed somewhat to when it was first built!

I didnt even get to see the Temple as apparently its not open to the public anymore!There was a lake at the bottom of the street which was very pretty as there were lights everywhere and pictures of dragons which lit up and fountains which danced to the music.

At this waterfront both day and night, you can hire a leisure boat which slowly takes you down to Zhonghua Men (the big gate in the north within the city walls). This I can imagine to be extremely relaxing, as, afterall, it was on this very same lake that the famous Tang poet Liu Yuxi wrote his most famous poem.

The area was nice and it was apparent that both foreigners and local people visit this area often, and it almost reminded me of the Silk Market In Beijing, but hassle free!!!!

About 2km south of Xinjiekou, leads you to the Temple of Confucius area, which begins at Jiankang Lu, around the bottom end of Taiping Lu.

Purple Mountain

Ni Hao,

Purple mountain in my mind! It will actually stay there forever once you see the place! The Sun-yat-Sen Mausoleum with its 392 steps is a must see as well as the Ming tombs and the Linggu Temple with 291 steps leading all the way to the top! If you have the luxury of time...go around the mountain on foot! The experience is invigorating!
