About Nanjing

Nanjing was called Jinling in ancient times. This settlement was an ancient capital thousands of years ago throughout several dynasties and kingdoms, and the traces of history can be found here wherever you go. When in Nanjing, climbing atop Taicheng, a five-minute walk on top of the Ming Great Wall, on the south bank of Xuanwu Lake. This city wall, with 600 years of history, looks east to the verdure of Zhongshan, while the blue waters of the Xuanwu Lake ripple in your gaze and the bells of the ancient Jiming Temple resound in the distance. Stroll through the beautiful Yihe Mansions area, get a cup of coffee in the renown 1912 district, or walk beneath the colorful canopies of hundred-year-old trees in the warm sun, and history will unfold before you moment by moment. Once night falls, you can get aboard a pleasure boat and travel by night along the Qin Huai River, where enjoying the ancient beauty on the riverbanks by streetlamp is even more enchanting. All the while you can experience the beautiful setting of the poem “A Mooring on the River Qin Huai.”

In fact, as an old Nanjing person who has been to the riverside countless times, it is also a city of reading people who recorded the scenery of Nanjing in the four seasons. Now, it is impossible to tell which part of Nanjings Binjiang Park belongs to it! In the past, the stone monument in the middle of the Qingao Cultural Park and the cotton embankment was engraved with Binjiang Park, and now it has become Nanjing Binjiang Cultural Harbor. Some people say that Lubo Park is a riverside park. Some people say that The riverside park opposite the Olympics West Gate!

Hey maybe, this is all right, including the Youth Olympic Park! Perhaps together with the Mufu Mountain section and the Jiangbei section, the name of the riverside scenery belt is even louder, highlighting the scenery of the two sides of the Yangtze River in Nanjing! After all, in recent years, Nanjing's greening, landscape, and lighting treatment along the Yangtze River are obvious to all! There are more people playing around, more people running, more people riding, and more people taking pictures! Relaxing and enjoying your mood is the biggest recognition!

I havent been riding Jiangbin for a long time, Wanjingyuan~Qingao Cultural Park~ Yuzui Park, or Wanjingyuan~Dujiang Memorial Hall~Zhongshan Wharf~Yangtze River Bridge, and then the swallow Riverside scenery, this is the usual place to take pictures of the sunset, even in the summer, will go to the river alone to blow the air, listen to the song, empty yourself! !

Today, I chose to cross the river, and the heart of Jiangxinzhou opened! !

cotton embankment (di) ferry. In the past, when there was no subway without Jiangxinzhou Jiajiang Bridge, it was more important traffic for the island residents to cross the river. With the changes of the times and the superiority of transportation, it has gradually withdrawn its function! Ten years ago, with the opening of the Jiajiang Bridge, the wheeled ferry at the cotton embankment had been closed first! Today's ferry is more of a role to send tourists, after all, today's Jiangxinzhou is also known as the ecological island, all kinds of scenery, the most famous is the Pink Garden and Youth Olympic Park!

is located at No. 268, Yangzijiang Avenue, Jianye District. It is also a niche scenery along the river along the Qingao Cultural Park!

Going here If you choose public transportation, the best way is to take bus 134 to the end, the next stop is!

Schedule: From 6 am to 9 pm, every hour, every trip, about 5 minutes.

The opposite is the flagpole ferry, there is a bus to the subway and the scenic spot at the door!

Many people pursue Japanese materials, probably like the environment, atmosphere, details to enjoy! I always think that the standard of a quality Japanese restaurant is probably natural, delicious, diverse and well-equipped! And Dragon God gave me the essence of it!

In fact, in Japan, the wine house is not necessarily a very high-end hotel, but more like China's big-name files. After work, a few colleagues or friends, find a warm and quiet place to drink some wine. , eat snacks, chat! Vent a day of negative emotions and fatigue!

The Shenlongju in the middle section of Wangfu Street, although small in size, has the uniqueness of the Japanese city's well-being. It is a small tatami cubicle of different sizes. Although it is not soundproof, it is intimate to pull the door! Will not bother each other!

The whole decoration has the charm of Japanese-style wine house, plus the wine glass jug on the wall and the partition, the wall paintings and utensils of various Japanese elements, closing the door, it is like a certain piece in Japan. Streets! Even the unique chopsticks and spoons on the table are placed in a unique style!

The two waiters and sisters are also polite, and the water dishes are also unambiguous, soft and gentle, and very self-cultivating! And the value is also very high!

, Miss Sister said that it is one of her family's characteristics, although the material is simple, but the taste is very unique, the tomato is peeled off the skin and the milky taste of the plum, plus the appropriate ice After that, sweet and sour, chilly appetizer!

Sashimi sashimi platter, beautifully placed, thick and juicy juice, the entrance is slippery and delicate, I don't know if it is added with fish oil, it is not fat after the meal!

Sushi platter, each one has bright color and firm meat. Although it is delicious and delicious, it is moderate, because the feeling of fullness is too strong, there is no stomach to eat other foods!

Grilled squid, the color is very rosy, cut into many portions, the skin is crispy and tender, it should be coated with fat honey, sweet and refreshing but not greasy, and there is no smell!

steak fried rice, big love, the shape is very tight, a spoon dug down, the aroma is tangy, the steak is fat and thin, the entrance is chewy, mix and eat very satisfied! Its just that there are more sushi points. This fried rice is not finished, it is a waste!

Although the overall price is not cheap, but the taste and service are quite satisfactory! Value for money! A small gathering of friends, dating couples, are good choices!
