Daming Lake, Jinan

(500+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
Regarded as the city's must-see spot, Daming Lake offers boat and yacht rides between plant-rich islands. Formed by a number of surrounding springs, the lake has a constant water level regardless of heavy rains or drought, making it very unique in geographical terms. Watch the swaying willows on the shoreline or observe the serene scenery in one of many majestic pavilions. In the middle of the lake you can find a fountain centerpiece built in 1985 which shoots jets of water more than 100 m (328 ft) high. Besides appreciating nature, you can also visit many Buddhist and Taoist temples nearby. Make Daming Lake part of your personalized Jinan itinerary using our Jinan itinerary maker.
