If this is your first time in china, then perhaps this place would be of great interest. If not, then it’s just another Nanjing thing to do if you have nothing else planned.

Laomendong is a new built place. The buildings look old but they are new (fake old buildings). It's greatly decorated with fountains and statues. You can find there many Chinese restaurants and Starbucks also. It's much better at night because the lights give Laomendong a...More
