There are many hotel options in Nanjing and if you venture outside Nanjing and go to the hot springs resort city of Tangshan you will be in for a great surprise. The city of Tangshan has natural hot springs and many fun options for visitors but mainly caters to locals because foreigners go to the main cities and sights. Another great area to visit near Nanjing is Liyang Tianmu Lake Resort which has lake resort activities and a Bamboo forest. During our last visit we selected the Bamboo Forest in Liyang Tianmu and it turned out to be an unexpected delight. To my surprise it had a small panda exhibit and we got to see Pandas. It is 2 mountain peaks with all Bamboo trees and cable cars and trains up the mountain to see different picturesque areas. We highly recommended this visit to the Bamboo forest.
I love China and it never gets bored because there is always another great surprise by exploring China with different cities, towns, villages, food, people, and culture. Get off the beaten path and explore.
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
