A really nice place to walk around from one end to the other. Lots of small shops selling souvenirs, pastries, sweets, delicacies, food & silks. Restaurants lined the streets. The Confucius Temple has great stories to tell. You can drop tokens in the pond & make a wish ‘relating to studies’! PASS WITH FLYING COLORS! As the weather was cool with lots of sunlight, tourists will take a ride in the river boats for sightseeing. Lots of people gathered at the bridge to do selfies. We bought some nice cookies from the stretch of shops. There are others selling Nanjing delicacies - savoury & sweets ones. We had lunch at one of the restaurants. Generally, they are pretty clean & bright. The one we had was air conditioned. It was beautifully decorated. It was selling dumplings, noodle soups, rice & others. We only liked the dumplings noodle soup...the staff helped with our order as we specifically wanted the type of noodles with chicken soup, another with mushrooms and dumplings with crab roe! Delicious! It was a pleasant visit & I recommend you to spend a bit of time there.

I was happened to be there during China's national holidays (the celebration of 70 years under Communist rules - and they have 7 days for public holidays ) - lots of people - you can still move freely but very slow at night time - The food - not cheap but okay, You can walk to here from the subway stations (2 of them). If you don't want massive crowd then avoid public holidays (lesson learnt)

the confucsious market is easy to find and is quite popular. it was so crowded the day we were there because it was on a holiday weekend. i would not recommend going on a holiday weekend at all. The crowd was huge but nobody seemed to actually be buying anything, just walking around and looking at stuff. Most of the items we seen here we had seen in other market for less money.

As I am not too much into history or important historical sites, the actual Confucius Temple in the area was of no interest to me. But the very commercial side of business, yea I am. There are many souvenir stores, restaurants, eateries, electric car rides and rickshaws here to cater for tourists. I could spend a few hours here just exploring the street, eating and walking into the stores. Yes, the truth is it is highly commercialized but I would not have it any other way. For more shops, go across the busy round for even more shops.

The Confucius Temple is located in Southern NanJing city alongside the bank of the QinHuai river. It is to commemorate the philosopher and educator KongZi. It was the biggest examination school in China in Qing Dynasty. Outside the Temple, now it becomes the hud of Nanjing city. There are cultural attractions, arts, food street, tourist shops, snack bars and restaurants. When the nights fall, the colour lights and Chinese traditional lanterns will be on, which boosts the bustling area more a vibrant and busy scene. It will be a great night out for visiting, entertaining, tasting local snacks and strolling. Even the Temple will open till 21:30.
