If there is no activity during the night when you travel in Nanjing, you can go to the Confucius Temple. During the night, many people will come around and enjoy the funny atmosphere here. Beautiful night piece of Qinhuai River and delicious Duck-blood Noodle showing you the unique Qinhuai flavor. Like Shanghai Chenghuang Temple, Confucius Temple is a gathering place for snack and little merchandise. You do will enjoy yourself.
