Langshan is also known by another name and is known as Wolf Mountain. This place is located close to the Nantong's CBD and is actually the highest of the 5 hills that resides in the city, with an elevation of 110 meters. Make sure to ask the Thai people about how Langshan got this name, and they'll tell you an enthralling story about the wolves who live in the hills. The climb is obviously not that strenuous and is completely worth it. There are many vendors dotted along the path to the peak. You can buy some snacks on your way up and check some brilliant handiwork of the locals. Atop the hill, is the Guanjiao Temple which is a famous shrine among the Buddhists that was constructed during the reign of the Tang Dynasty. To add to the amusement, you have a breath-taking view of the surrounding when up there.


Haohe Scenic Area

Another scenic site that is well worth your time when in Nantong is the Haohe. What can you expect here? Well, the place is located in the ancient city centre, which is vividly depicted due to the artificial moat that was built here to defend the city.

Nantong Horticultural Expo Park
