Nestled at the base of Zijin Shan, Xuanwu Lake Park was once an imperial garden. Now it is Nanjing's backyard. Nanjngers come here to walk, to exercise, to fish, or watch their children play. During Spring Festival and other major festivals the park is filled with the pop and light of firecrackers. The open spaces are never without people, but the spacious grounds never feel full. There are paddle boats to rent along the lake, and islands in the center of the water to visit. Along the north shore of the lake is the Nanjing Amusement Park and towards Zhongshan Gate is the Sun Palace Water Park.
The list of activities in the Wutaishan Recreation Park is so long, it is almost easier to think up amenities they do not have. More than a popular stadium, Wutaishan is the place to go in Nanjing for most sports and activities. From a driving range for golf fans to basketball courts and yoga classes, Wutaishan has something for everybody. Indoor tennis, an underground pool hall and informal dance classes can also be found here. If you feel cooped up or it is the first day after the rainy season, the gardens around Wutaishan make excellent walking as well. The Paulaner Brauhaus and Shishang Yunnan Restaurant are just two of the restaurants and cafes that take advantage of the area's outdoor beauty.
The Zhenboa Holiday Hotel is at the edge of Nanjing's southern suburb. Though situated far away from the city center, it has plenty of facilities within the hotel to make up for it. The hotel has a KTV, restaurant, nightclub, shops, and a bar available for guests, and it is also close to a metro station, allowing people to get into Nanjing cheaply and easily. The restaurant features a banquet hall and private rooms for diners, with a selection of Chinese and Western foods. The hotel is new and also has a modern gym, spa and sauna facilities.
