Just north of the city center (Wenchang Pavillion) lies the tree and park lined Hu Cheng Canal 护城河 (also called the Qian Long Waterway). Yanfu Road runs along the waterway. Emperor Qianlong used this route to enter the city and visit Slender West Lake.
I was born and raised in Yangzhou, in my opinion, Dong Guan Old Street is the epitome of Yangzhou.
Hours:8am to 6:30pm
Gao Min Temple is my favorite temple in Yangzhou, it's so peaceful that you can feel the buddhist teachings, there are also some gardens and vegetable filed here, sometimes I just want to escape the city and spend a whole day here.
It's Wudaotai's mansion.
You may see more about Chinese ancient architecture and culture.
It is also one of the largest three mansions in the regions south of the Yangtze River.
There are 99.5 rooms in it.
What does 0.5 room mean ? You will find the answer after visiting.

Slender West Lake is the premier attraction in Yangzhou. The park, lined with willow trees, picturesque pagodas, and loads of history has enough to keep a visitor busy for the entire day. During spring the park is an expansive wonderland of flowers and budding trees. There are few enclosed city parks in China as impressive as this, making Slender West Lake a must visit.

The towering pagoda seen in the distance from Slender West Lake is Da Ming Temple.

Running parallel to the busy Wenchang Road is a quiet ancient back alley that contains a host of sites well worth visiting. The alley's main gate/entrance dates back to the Qing Dynasty. Small restaurants and craft shopss line the alley, yet it thankfully lacks any sense of commercialization.
Address:Head south on Guoqing Road from Wenchang Zhonglu
Another great place to wander is around the old part of town off Ganquan and Guoqing roads commonly known as 'Old Yangzhou'. There’s no telling what interesting things you’ll stumble across down these back streets. Find the canal running north and south for a beautiful scene that rivals the famous canals of Suzhou.
