As the capital of six ancient dynasties, Nanjing was completely designed in a royal style. You can experience the majesty of the imperial city from its rich culture, heritage architecture, urban design, and geographical story.
Nanjing has many classic night scenes, such as the lights and boats on the Qinhuai River, the starlight reflected in Xuanwu Lake, the charming ancient city walls at night, and the lighted promenade along the Yangtze River. They are great, but don't miss out the new Nanjing nights besides them. You should also enjoy the downtown lights, the magnificent cityscape, and the contemporary architectural design.
On summer nights in Nanjing, a strong sense of Jinling culture imperceptibly adds radiance and beauty to the modern urban customs, echoing countless beautiful natural sceneries. Walking through the fireflies filling the whole sky, you can not only look up at the starry sky but also have a bird's eye view of the lingering river-like lights in the city.
Simply put, if you happen to come to Nanjing in the summer, you might as well choose to take a walk on the ancient bluestone road on both sides of Qinhuai River on a beautiful night, and witness the beauty of Jinling in the experience of lingering prosperity. The romance of Qinhuai River is worth a try.
As spring sets in and temperatures go up, the heart eager to go for spring outings grows all the more restless. Which places in Nanjing offer the best views in springtime? An encounter with spring flowers in the city would be the most interesting spring pastime.
Beginning in early March, the lovely spring scenes in Nanjing would have a bright golden yellow touch. Glistening yellow swathes, i.e. rape fields, lure and enchant visitors. The rape, a major crop, would sketch out huge, saturated and dazzling oil paintings during the blooming season.
With the spring in the air, cherry trees have quietly blossomed across Nanjing. Pink petals float down like snowflakes and dance around in the sky, adding a bright touch of beauty to the ancient capital.
