“An Interesting relic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

An interesting relic is what I would categorize this attraction. I did make it a point to travel here to visit, and enjoy the park with my guitar a couple of hours before leaving for Shanghai.

“Must see in Nanjing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

Walked the section along Xuanwu Lake.
It's quiet on the wall, with views of Xuanwu Lake & the city. The wall is well preserved and feels quite imposing in some parts. Hard to believe they are hundreds of years old.
Saw a couple of exhibits along the walk but they were only in Chinese so skipped past them.

“Have to go see it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Like a mini great wall. Very quiet and nice views. Go to the one connected to the temple also so you can knock out 2 in one.

“Warm walls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Had a great trip out to the Nanjing wall - very interesting and you can explore lots of the nooks etc - Make sure you feel the bricks inside the tunnels for hiding the soldiers in (they are warm in winter!)
Well worth a trip out!

“Just standing...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This may be a false impression, but I felt the city wall was respected, not artificially preserved but allowed to stand with its own presence a reminder of power through the ages. The wall is huge, part of the modern landscape (with children playing on the top, in care of adults, and a jazz band playing at the opening to one of the tunnels at the base...)
