I went during lantern festival, so the whole city was decorated with these beautiful lanterns which looked absolutely amazing at night!

Nanjing
Qin Huai River

You can have a short boat trip and explore Nanjing's historic city centre from the water.

Zijin Mountain
Purple Mountain

There are a lot of mausoleums and tombs on the mountain and you also have a great view over the surrounding area. If you're not that fond of crowded places, then head to Linggu temple, which is a very quiet area and definitely worth a visit. There are shuttle buses taking you from sight to sight.

A very, very modern city but to be honest, Hongkong, just over the border, is way nicer.

Splendid China
Chinese Folk Cultural Village

This park is basically a minature version of whole China. China's most famous sites are displayed as minature versions and different Chinese minority groups disply folk dances and shows. The big dance and acrobatics show iin the evening is amazing!

A bustling mix between East and West, old and new. Very crowded though, but amazing food! Most hostels are really shady.

A must-see: Absolutely amazing view over Hongkong from the top of the peak! You can get up there with the historic peak tram.
