    A nice big open space in the middle of the city, where groups and families come out to stroll. There;s space for kids to roller skate and play with their remote control toys and vendors selling kites ...  more »

    Just an open concrete area. Nothing really there. Some teens would hang around in the evenings and we saw some families flying kites. There was a pretty fountain but that's about it.  more »

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.
