Nice area to walk through with tons of restaurants, there is also an art museum here. Great place for photo opportunities and food, but besides that there is nothing much to do.

One of Nanjing's more recent attractions, Laomendong looks like an old city quarter, but actually it is all new. It is old only by name. The eastern section is already teeming with shops and restaurants, whereas the western section (the section close to Zhonghua Men)...More
