After a long hot day sightseeing, we took a stroll out to one of the islands on the lake. Beautiful scenes, families taking an evening walk, well worth a visit.

The lake itself and the surrounding scenery includes the city wall, some funny looking rocks, trees, and as you'd expect from a lake, lots of water. It's best to go when it's a weekday otherwise there will be a lot of people crowding there.

This lake really is breathtaking. I’ve been here twice now. Once this year and once last. The water and scenery is beautiful.

Very beautifull lake. The park near by is also very beautifull. Evening and morning good for jogging around the lake.

We wandered around the lake buying snacks to eat here and there (all very cheap) before hiring a boat to spend an hour on the lake. It was quite a pretty area with lots of residents/tourists enjoying themselves, great for people watching!

I enjoyed the visit to Xuanwu Lake. We entered the lake/park area near the Nanjing Exhibition Hall. It was early morning and there were groups of people practicing Taichi and dancing. I was particularly intrigued by the display of bird cages at one corner. I...More

The small lake was quite noisy with so many small boats...meanwhile the small islands were good leisure places to kill time before I took my train.

You can reach the lake by metro and it is about 30 minutes away from the city center. We love this place to get away from the urban built up area. It is quiet and the cool spring weather is a great time to walk...More
