We went during the lantern festival. The atmosphere was fantastic with lots of people, amazing lanterns, and buskers who can actually sing. There are plenty of places to eat and shop.

It is worth waiting in a long line for its delicious food. Corners decorated with wistaria are my favourite spots in Laomendong.

Like many pedestrian street in China, there are many shops and restaurants along the street. However, it did maintain the ancient building architectural design and the cobble stone street making one feels walking inside an old China small town. It is not a large area and probably can finish the tour in two hours time unless you want to explore more deeply. There is an arts exhibition centre in the area but not something sophisticated. The Nanjing city wall is just located along the area which deserves visiting as it is the longest city wall in the world. Across the river on the other side of the city wall is the famous Porcelain Tower. So basically you can complete the tour of these three places all within walking distance in one day.

It was such a small old town to visit on a lovely drizzling Sunday morning. Without the tourist crowd I am able to slowly appreciate each building each alley each corner of the place. Recommended to have a stroll here.

Laomendong is one of my favourite places in Nanjing.
First, unlike other touristy sites, Laomendong is quite clean. All buildings were kept in ancient Chinese style which is quite unique.
I’d recommend you to visit this place.

Beautiful old alleys and houses that dates back to at least the Republic era. Great food selection, and it doesn’t feel as commercialised (yet) as the Fuzimiao area just yet.

You could come to wall in the afternoon and visit here in the evening. There are some worthy restaurants and eateries.

We went there on a sunny morning, which the artistic shops were opened. The area is within the Ming wall, the architecture of the structure are reminiscent of bygone era. There is an art academy within the area and simple eateries that cater to the local tastes. There is also a burger joint and Starbucks located on the main strip. As midday approaches, the temperatures quickly soared to the nineties, which we took refuge within one of the shops that sells Taiwanese cold drinks and tofu based desserts; quiet tasty with reasonable price. Overall, we liked the place, not crowded as the Confucius gate, although commercialized but less cheesy.

Nice area to walk through with tons of restaurants, there is also an art museum here. Great place for photo opportunities and food, but besides that there is nothing much to do.
