    I love Xuawu lake and park. I went there every month when I lived in Nanjing. Wonderful place. It is a free park with gardens and lake. I enjoyed the boat rides with some friends which is totally worth the payment. Loved hearing the crickets in the gardens. Its a lovely place for couples, family, friends...and even singles to sit and meditate.

    Xuanwu Lake is very large, adjacent to Nanjing Station, Jiming Temple, Mingcheng Wall and other scenic spots. It is free and open. Every import and export has a shared bicycle. It is recommended to cycle around. It took me about four minutes to walk all the way from Xuanwumen to Huanzhou, Cherry Island, Lingzhou, Liangzhou and Cuizhou, and then to get out of Jiefangmen. I was very tired. But the beautiful scenery, pleasant scenery, willow lakeside Yiyi, breeze blowing, although not as poetic and picturesque as the West Lake in Hangzhou, mysterious dream, but it is not a worthwhile trip.

    Xuanwu Lake in summer night, the ancient city wall of Ming Dynasty nearby, Zifeng Tower not far away, Zijin Mountain in the east, surrounded by the Xuanwu Lake rippling with blue waves, the wind blows lotus, the lights flutter, the beautiful ship, some days did not come, found more yellow duck-shaped boats, the price of 120 hours is not expensive, but really beautiful, early morning or evening, boating lake, watching fish play lotus leaf. It should be great to feel the interweaving of the old and the modern.

    During the "11" holidays, three of our family came to Nanjing for the first time. At noon, when we leave the railway station, we see Xuanwu Lake, the front and back lakes, the sky, and the blue hectares. We are immediately fascinated by the beautiful scenery in front of us. What a livable city it is. To tell you the truth, Xi'an Railway Station comes out and meets the wall. Today, the two historic cities have very different patterns. We swiftly switched to the tourist mode, hiked with luggage, along the lake, all the way to play, take photos, and go to the booked Xuanwu Lake Holiday Hotel. The lakeside is shaded with green trees, fragrant grass, colorful flowers, dancing butterflies and unexpected surprises, just as osmanthus trees are in full bloom, fragrant and refreshing. Last time "11" in Guilin, because of the cold weather, missed the blooming season of Osmanthus trees, Nanjing made up for the regret of going to Guilin. After breakfast the next day, the sky was cloudy and drizzling. Starting from the ten-mile long levee, we continued our walk around the lake clockwise yesterday afternoon. Perhaps because the holiday has just begun, or weather factors, Xuanwu Lake Scenic Area tourists are not many, no one crowded, bustling crowds, play is very refreshing. Xuanwu Lake in the mist and rain, green Yinyin, ancient trees towering, beautiful flowers, fragrant fragrance in the fresh air. Standing on the reading platform, Xuanwu Lake is vast, Zhongshan, Jiuhua Mountain, ancient city wall, Xuanwumen Gate, towering towers into the clouds, Lake scenery, nature, humanities, history, modern, perfect combination, present the present, beautiful. Xuanwu Lake is full of scenery and affection everywhere. We walk slowly, travel carefully, take pictures, laugh, and enjoy a one-day tour around Xuanwu Lake with our loved ones at "right".

    In the colorful autumn, Jinling Xing (5)" Jinling Pearl, Six Dynasties Royal Garden"-Xuanwu Lake, located in Nanjing Xuanwu District, has a total area of 512.76 hectares, of which 378 hectares are lakes. It has a history of 2300 years. Starting from Xuanwu Gate, it travels through Huanzhou-Xuanbo-Wumiao Gate-Jiefangmen-Mingcheng Exploration-Wutaiping Gate-Shili Changdi-Lovers Garden-Cuizhou Gate-Nanjing Railway Station-IV. Yiting-Model Road Gate, back to Xuanwu Gate, hiking around the lake and Wuzhou, took more than half a day. On one side was the ancient and continuous Ming City Wall, on the other side was the blue-rippled Xuanwu Lake, straight and tall metasequoia, winding wooden trestle roads, wooden houses with different shapes, rose blossoming in Huanzhou, and a gathering of scenic spots and historic sites.

    Xuanwu Lake is very beautiful and very big. It may take a day to appreciate the scenery slowly. Chrysanthemum can be appreciated in autumn and lotus can not be seen in November. But rockery and other scenery is very suitable for photography, each scenic spot is suitable for slowly tasting, breathing fresh air, flowers and grass are many, do not need tickets is very worthwhile to go.

    Xuanwu Lake Scenic Area is very beautiful. The whole scenic area is quite large. We enter the park from Xuanwu Gate. After visiting both sides of the gate, we enter Cherry Island directly along the bridge through Tongzi Guanyin Stone, along the Lianhu Water Garden, Rose Garden, Cherry Island Corridor, Nonata Tower, Lotus Plaza, Vientiane Renewal Year after year, Tonggujing, Ransom Tower, Liuwan Guanyu, Cuizhou Front Line Tour, and finally cross Xuqiao to go out of Cuizhou Gate. The road basically visited the classic scenic spots of Xuanwu Lake, and found that the scenery would be better if Xuanwu Lake was open with azaleas, lotus and cherry blossoms, but this season when osmanthus blossoms, along the way, you could smell the fragrance of fragrant osmanthus and enjoy it very much. Such a beautiful scenic spot, do not accept tickets, is really Huimin ah!

    Nanjing stands out as a Xuanwu Lake. Although all the areas are open, each entrance is managed by someone. Xuanwu Lake was originally a place for training naval forces, but now there are ancient Wushu Platform, which was changed into a royal garden and built on the city wall. The lake is very large. It can be rowed or used as a tourist boat. The sightseeing bus can be divided into four islands within and around the lake outside. It can not be finished by foot. It can enter Xuanwu Gate and save time. It can visit four islands directly. The largest islands are Cherry Island, with Lama Temple and Lotus Square. The other islands have more or less some historical buildings, such as the Lake Temple on Liangzhou Island, which is the Yellow Book repository of household registration information. Hanbixuan Friendship Hall, Jinling bonsai area, chrysanthemum display, unfortunately, the season is still near, chrysanthemum did not fully blossom. Outer ring, only slowly walk, or can climb up the ancient city wall, along the wall climb high overlooking, the scenery is quite good.
