Take advantage of the four-hour opportunity to change planes in Nanjing, from the airport to Metro Line 3 by Subway S1, get off at Wudingmen Station for 7 yuan 40 minutes, and then get off a few hundred meters. Lao Mendong has a long history. Lao Mendong is located in the east of Zhonghua Gate (formerly called Jubao Gate) in Qinhuai District of Nanjing City. It is called "Mendong" because it is located in the east of Nanmen of Nanjing Capital City, which is opposite to the west of Lao Men. Lao Men East Block is a well-known open national 5A tourist attraction in China. It is a part of the Qinhuai Scenic Belt of Nanjing Confucius Temple. Mendong is the gathering place of traditional dwellings in Nanjing. Since ancient times, it has been the place where businessmen and businessmen from south of the Yangtze River gathered together, where people gathered and families lived. Mendong is a broad concept, east of Zhonghua Gate is Mendong. Today, the historical and cultural block of Lao Mendong is a narrow concept of Mendong. As early as the Three Kingdoms period, there were residential settlements in Mendong. In the Ming Dynasty, along the Zhonghua Gate and Qinhuai River, it became the economic center of the city. It became an important distribution center of trade and handicraft industry, showing a flourishing scene. After the end of the Qing Dynasty, Mendong, Menxi and other areas in the south of the old city gradually became areas with residential functions as the main part, which embodied the style and features of traditional houses in the south of the old city of Nanjing. Because it was daytime and there were not many tourists, I turned around to take pictures, had a snack lunch here, and then returned to the airport along the original road and left Nanjing by air. It's easy to master the time of taking the subway. It's a good way. Next time you have a chance to come to Nanjing, the next stop is the Confucius Temple. It's also a famous tourist attraction in Nanjing.
It feels that the buildings are quite distinctive and charming. It will be delicious to take pictures and add a filter. The evening is also very beautiful, there are various kinds of lanterns. This is a place of literary and artistic petty bourgeoisie. There are restaurants with food and drink and distinctive features. Many shops are decorated and their signboards are very tasty. Unlike the Confucius Temple, the Confucius Temple, under the name of Qinhuai Scenic Spot, carries out the business of commercial street. Moreover, the construction of Confucius Temple can only be seen in a large way, and can not be savored carefully. A serious look is that there are some black frames on the two floors. If you eat here, it seems that you haven't eaten anything. There's an alley on the left and there's "smoke again" outside. Chili sauce is good. The stinky tofu tastes ordinary. Poor travel is mainly about watching, eating only for wrapping up the stomach.
From the gate of China to the east, along the city wall, you can reach the entrance to the east of the old gate. This section of the road can not be landscape, Yajule Changle Du villas, green bricks on the wall, wood carved window edges, black doors, if not the electronic entrance guard, think to the ancient lane house. It is said that a set of 50 million houses, people who can live are not rich or expensive, ordinary people as scenic spots to visit it! The first phase of Laomendong's development in 2015 is now under development and construction. The Rebuilders did not simply repair, nor did they build crude antique buildings, a new house with ancient elements, and hidden bookstores, studios, coffee shops among them... Let people constantly find surprises!
It's free here. It's charming here. Because of beauty, I went there twice. The first time was in the evening. When we got to the pavilion, we went to eat the old hot pot. The night scenery was good and beautiful. The second time was in the afternoon. I went to the wall of Zhonghua Gate. I saw Deyun Nanjing Branch and Starbucks. I went to Zhonghua Gate. A New Vanguard bookstore was opened in a place called Junhui Bookstore. I heard that it was only opened in the Mid-Autumn Festival. It has antique flavor and exquisite wood carvings. Go on to Zhonghua Gate, there is an administrative unit called Nanjing City Wall Museum. The buildings inside are beautiful too. Unfortunately, it is not convenient to take pictures.
The overall feeling here is better than that of the Confucius Temple. There are too many visitors to the Confucius Temple. It's a bit noisy, and it's more delicate here. It can slow you down. Old Gate East should be transformed into old blocks. There is no such noisy business as Lijiang Old Town. There are also bridges, streaming water, books, creative blocks and various old-fashioned delicacies. One of the pioneer bookstores heard a visitor tell me that the ancient buildings here were rebuilt from Wuyuan as a whole, retaining exquisite wood carvings, with a sense of historical vicissitudes. Every shop here is so delicate that I can't help staring at it in the night. It's a very pleasant place with a lot of money.
In recent years, the area east of Beijing Zhonghua Gate has been renovated and opened to the public. It has become a popular tourist area. There are many characteristic shops and exquisite houses. Vanguard Bookstore (Junhui Bookstore), Deyun Society and so on have also been stationed. There are also various snacks of net red. People can walk around and eat in the east of the old gate after they visit the Zhonghua Gate. There are also some folk performances on New Year's Day, and handicraftsmen make crafts on the spot. When I went there two days ago, I found that the taste of the year here was very good. When foreign friends come, we will play with them.
My favorite place is that Junhui Bookstore, a pioneer Bookstore newly opened in the east of Lao Men, places itself in the sea of books, and inadvertently flips to the open news of Junhui Bookstore on the micro-blog, so I can't wait to find the voice and go away. The entrance to the entrance was attracted by the partitions filled with books and famous works, almost crouched in the stack of books at the door and picked up. Fortunately, my colleagues pulled me in time. Through the partition, it was a small, then very open reading area. Unlike the spacious literature and art of Wutaishan Main Store, Junhui Bookstore is more inclined to the simple nature of Nordic, light wooden long table, white paint chair, and hardcover books on the table at will. The calm atmosphere makes people sit down and read. The orderly arrangement of brightly colored books at the end adds a little liveliness to the gentle and quiet space. The decorations on the tables are also very interesting. The small picture shelf stands the books of the avant-garde bookstore. The colleagues of the same trade can not help but sit and pose. Indeed, for those who love to take pictures, the seemingly simple places have their own beautiful scenery everywhere. They can not help but click the camera in their hands. Behind him, the little brother who arranged the books smiled, nodded and smiled comprehensively. The time spent reading books was always so fast that his stomach would be hungry. The shop also had a simple afternoon tea opposite the reading area for readers to replenish their energy. On the second floor of a small doorway, compared with the first floor, the second floor of the atmosphere is full of classical quiet flavor. The yellowish light in the quiet compartment appears so quiet, unconsciously playful mood also quiet down, relying on the soft seat on the sofa to rest. Walking back along the corridor, half of the area on the second floor was made into a salon-style lecture hall. Bright square, rows of white chairs neatly placed, not half of the lecture that sense of distance, this kind of reach can touch the distance is relaxing and pleasant. I really want to listen to such a close-up lecture, I really want to listen to a close-watch singer club.
Friends recommend places, first of all free, followed by really good, are historical legacies of the old house, many snacks in the scenic area are good, the price is also close to the people. There is also the Nanjing Deyun Society, to listen to a, very worthy of recommending you to listen to.
Every time I travel to Nanjing, because of my favorite cross talk, the East Scenic Area of Laomen does not accept admission tickets. The scenery and architecture inside are very beautiful. Friends who like history must come to see it. It feels very good. When people are small in the daytime, walking in the alley feels very comfortable and quiet. In the evening, when the landscape lights are on, visitors in twos and threes are relaxing. Around seven o'clock to Deyun Society to listen to cross talk, about three hours, came out later bowl of duck blood vermicelli soup. Hey hey, it's a little old people's rhythm.
Lao Mendong, an ancient place name in the southern part of the old city of Nanjing, is located at the intersection of the hoop barrel lane and scissors lane of Nanjing's Confucius Temple. It belongs to the national 5A class tourist attraction. Old streets and alleys make people feel the southern style of the old city. After visiting the Vanguard Bookstore, we continue to walk in. There are traditional snacks in Nanjing, as well as the familiar Deyun Club and various traditional crafts. Along the way, we can see many street sculptures and appreciate the exquisite stone sculptures on the archway. In addition, there are many pavilions and pavilions, which seem to have the characteristics of gardens in the south of the Yangtze River. It's really good to come here to take a view.
