Daming Lake, Jinan

4.3
#1 of 14 in Nature in Jinan
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. Put Daming Lake into our Jinan day trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Jinan.

  • Although it is winter, but daming really is very beautiful, to Jinan is sure to go. Along the lake is a park, you can see a lot of locals walking, quite a breath of life. We came in from the southwest door to look for a long time from the north gate, feeling the logo is not very clear.
