This is the shopping area for Chinese traditional and plenty of food and souvenirs. Most products are higher to the local market price, please negotiate before purchase.

It's very common in China, transforming an historical place in a glittering touristic market. This is also the case of the Confucian temple area in Nanjing. Nice for a night walk but not really interesting

Been there once at day and once at night. Recommended visiting at night because the lights are so beautiful. If you go there after Chinese New Year, you can visit the lantern festival too in Fuzimiao. You need to pay extra, around 40 RMB. There are some historical places (kinda museum) in fuzimiao, ex: place where scholars took their national... More

I went to Nanjing right before The Lantern Festival. The area is decorated with Lanterns. It is nice to walk around during night and day time. There are tons of stores to eat and shopping for traditional Chinese items.

This is a beautiful area next to the Confucian temple. Other than the lovely temple itself, there's the gorgeous river (day or night), a lovely bridge and a nearby market. Totally worth a 1-2 hour stroll.

If you don't visit Fuzimiao and see it's iconic views of Qin Huai River and Chinese architecture, then you really haven't been to Nanjing: it would be like going to Shanghai and not visiting the Bund. Although the area is historical for it's links to Confucius, education and religion, it's also an extremely commercial tourist hub. Most of the souvenirs... More
