ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Qin Huai River, Nanjing, JiangsuYou can relax as you cruise on the Qinhuai River, a more than 100km Long Branch of the Yangtze River. It is said that the river was diverted to the city during the reign of Emperor Qin Shi Huang from where its name comes. You can see many places of interest as you cruise down the river and enjoy the traditional culture of Nanjing. Duration: 50 minutesStop At: Xiaoling Tomb of Ming Dynasty, Nanjing, JiangsuThe elaborate lay out of the numerous tomb structures in the Ming Xiaoling is a fine example of ancient China’s royal tomb construction, which was greatly influenced by the traditional Chinese theory of geomantic omen on location. This also illustrates the predominant thought of power that dominated ancient China for over 5,000 years.Duration: 2 hoursStop At: Confucius Temple Market, Nanjing, JiangsuAfter Qinhuai boat tour, if time permits, you can walk around Fu Zi Temple market. The area now only has a small number of the Ming & Qing style buildings remaining, including the temple, but it is a bustling bazaar area with some interesting sculptures and a good place to watch local residents coming and going from the temple. Duration: 30 minutes
