While in Nanjing the river boat tour on 'qin huai' is a nice way to see some of the things 'behind the scene'. It is not very expensive and gives you some additional insights of the city.

Some lovely old Chinese architecture based on the edge of the river. However it can be very busy and is full of different shops making it more like an outdoor shopping mall!

if you get the chance to take a boat ride up and down the qin huai its a good experience. the scenery along the shores is ancient and gives a glimpse into china away from the tourist scene.

The river just right by the Confucius temple. Worth visiting, especially towards the evening when they light up the decorative lanterns.
