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.
