Late November or early December is the time to visit Qixia Mountain and temple to see the maples and other trees displaying their autumn foliage. When we went one sunny sunday there were thousands of people visiting - this is China after all. But people watching is just as much fun as seeing the leaves. It costs 40 rmb for... More

It's 30 minutes outside of Nanjing, however it is worth the trip. Found out that the foliage will turn red on mid-November and provide a beautiful backdrop for your photo. The Buddha caves and the sacred relics tower are worth the visit on their own. The temple itself is also better than most.

Amazing place. This place is about 25 minutes outside of Nanjing, however it is worth the trip. It was a fun 3 hours for my family and i, the kids loved the temple and they loved having some space to run around when walking up to the view points and temples. It was only 25 Yuan per adult and kids... More

November is beautiful here, the foliage on the hillsides provide a beautiful backdrop to your photographs. The views of industry up the river and over the city are an interesting contrast. Accessed easily though it takes 1-hr via Metro Line 2 to YangShan and a taxi (20-25rmb).

This site is one of the more interesting historical attractions in the Nanjing area. It is actually a congolmeration of religious structures ranging over a 1500 year period of Chinese history. The main halls, ponds, bell-towers and monastic buildings at the front of the complex are the most recent, dating back a mere century or so. Nonetheless, they are quite... More

This was easy to get to and not very busy. There were many different aspect and areas to explore. The leaves were all changing color which made the temple surrounds very pretty.

It is worth making the effort to get to the mountain area. There are plenty of good walks up and around the mountain. The views of the Yangtze, from the summit are excellent, and the Buddha caves are also worth the visit on their own. The temple itself is also better than most. We went on a Saturday, and it...
