During my stay in Nanjing I used to walk around Yueya Lake quite often. I really like the setting just outside the old city walls and the beautiful views of both the lake and Zijin Shan (Purple Mountain) to the north. Yueya Lake Park is divided into a northern and a southern section. If you take the northern route, you can walk around the lake (or at least the northern part) in a circle. There are some bridges and viewing pavillons along the way where you could rest if you are so inclined. On the southern route you can only walk along the lake's western shore, as there is no path open to the public on the the eastern shore, which means that you have to go back on the same route. At least you can choose between walking directly along the shore (take care not to fall into the water) or on higher ground through the small park. If you get hungry, there are four restaurants, all on the western shore of the lake. The famous and very interesting Nanjing Museum can be easily reached on foot from here: from the north entrance (or exit) of the park, turn left, walk through a tunnel and then take the underground passage and you are in front of the museum in less than 5 minutes.
