Blue Hour at the Fuzi Temple Docks in Nanjing (Panchi Wharf). If you look carefully, you'll spot the ubiquitous golden arches! You can hire these boats, for both night & day tours around the canals. The Confucian or 'Fuzi' temple is at far left.

I was a cheapskate & took the 80 yuan night cruise. I had already walked around most of the area in daylight. The night cruise did visit 2 areas though, that I missed. The area of the canal in Bailuzhou Park, parallel to the old city wall, (which I will look at more closely on my next visit), & the 4 lotus arches, which also look great at night. http://www.treklens.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=631827
