Trip Report where to next after Nanjing 2014 youth olympic games

After watching Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games opening ceremony on Aug 16th, my family and I took a side trip to Zhenjiang on our way home. It only takes about 20 minutes there by high-speed rail. I chose Jinshan Temple as our first step because of the heartbroken folklore, “Tale Of The White Snake”.
The special design of gate of Jinshan Temple got my attention at the first sight. It opens to the west! Then our lovely and kind guide explained to me its historical reason.
We looked around Jinshan Hill to visit other places of interest. Drinking a cup of fresh tea tea in Spring Zhongleng is really cozy. While climbing up the Cishou Pagoda to have a bird's eye view of the park and surroundings is a bit exhausting. At last, we tried the famous noodle in the streetfood restaurant near Jinshan Temple but the taste is not that good. Maybe we didn’t find a local one. I hope that one day I can go to there again to visit Jiaoshan Hill, Beigu Hill and Nanshan Park.
I miss this trip so much.
