Where to Go in Nanjing in January

Whenever you go to Nanjing, the Confucius Temple (Fuzimiao) is a must-see attraction. The surrounding areas are the most bustling district in Nanjing with all kinds of stalls and Qinhuai River nearby.

When it snows, it’s an impressive experience if you visit the Chaotian Palace, a Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) palace complex. Covered by snow, the palace seems more serene and magnificent. The holy whiteness, the golden roofs and the red walls create a fabulous visual effect, which is suitable for photographing.

In cold winter, taking a hot spring bath is a great idea. The Tangshan Hot Springs are worth a try to make you fully relaxed.
