The Qinhuai River is the cradle of the culture of Nanjing. The Qinhuai River View Area has been the most flourishing place of Nanjing for more than 1,000 years, which is called “ten-kilometer-pearl-decorated curtains”.
The most charming view on Qinhuai River is the boat whose name is “gaily-painted pleasure-boats”. They imitate the architectural style of Ming Dynasty. The owners like to hang some colorful balls and lanterns on the boats. At night, the light is reflected into the water and adds much vitality to Qinhuai River.
