Xuanwu Lake


Si­t­u­ated at the foot of Zhong­shan Moun­tain, this scenic lake with its five small islets in the cen­ter and the ad­ja­cent Ji­uhuashan Park com­bine for a pleas­ant and re­flec­tive re­treat away from the fre­netic city beat. Boating and jog­ging are pop­u­lar pas­times, and it’s par­tic­u­larly pho­to­genic in late spring when the shore­line’s cherry trees are in full blos­som. The sun­sets on clear sum­mer evenings, set against a back­drop of Nan­jing’s fast-chang­ing skyline, are truly com­pelling. BT
