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.

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.
