Heihu Spring, Jinan

4.6
#3 of 14 in Nature in Jinan
Refresh yourself with crystal clear water from the source at Heihu Spring--one of the 72 sacred springs found in the city. The spring supplies the community with fresh water, for drinking and other uses. Water cascades from a cliff, finally spouting through three stone-carved tiger heads and into a pool. On hot days, you may see a few locals swimming in the adjacent river or cooling off inside the spring's pool. Take a pleasant walk by the moat, get some water, and inspect the giant tiger statues that adorn the vicinity of the spring. Don't forget to bring an empty plastic bottle along. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Jinan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Heihu Spring and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

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.
