We wandered around the lake buying snacks to eat here and there (all very cheap) before hiring a boat to spend an hour on the lake. It was quite a pretty area with lots of residents/tourists enjoying themselves, great for people watching!

I enjoyed the visit to Xuanwu Lake. We entered the lake/park area near the Nanjing Exhibition Hall. It was early morning and there were groups of people practicing Taichi and dancing. I was particularly intrigued by the display of bird cages at one corner. I...More

The small lake was quite noisy with so many small boats...meanwhile the small islands were good leisure places to kill time before I took my train.

You can reach the lake by metro and it is about 30 minutes away from the city center. We love this place to get away from the urban built up area. It is quiet and the cool spring weather is a great time to walk...More

It's crowded, but really nice to see in the evening for sunset if you have time. There is a nice walkway that encircles the lake (around 5km) that is great for runners and walkers alike. Nice place to do photography and get some candid shots...More

Amazing to have such a place right in the heart of a huge city! Feels like a small getaway from daily rush. We went during the week and there were only few others. Beautiful gardens to enjoy the tranquility.
