Baotu Spring Park, Jinan

4.2
Nature / Park Must See
Feel the healing power of ancient hot springs at Baotu Spring Park. Already documented in a core 8th-century BCE Chinese chronicle, the springs have been a source of admiration and a pilgrimage spot for millennia. Enjoy gardens, willow trees, and koi ponds in the park, spanning 10.5 hectares (26 acres), and have cup of tea at the house overlooking the springs. Rent a boat to get a close-up view of the artesian karst source, or just stroll around the park, taking in occasional performances and viewing memorials of famous painters. Horse carriages outside the park offer transport to other parts of the city. Add Baotu Spring Park and other attractions to your Jinan trip itinerary using our Jinan itinerary planner .

Where to stay in Jinan

True to form as a transport hub, Jinan offers a wide range and variety of accommodations. Luxurious hotels tend to group in the chic southeastern part of the city, with surprisingly affordable options in this trendy area of town. Many major international chains are represented in the city, as well as plenty of places to choose from in the low-budget category. A number of hotels and guesthouses cluster near the train station, offering great proximity to onward transport connections, but not to the major tourist sites. Daming Lake and Wuliou Residential District also have a number of budget hotels.
