City of Springs

A political, commercial, and cultural center of Shandong Province, Jinan serves as an important transit hub to other destinations. Sandwiched between Taishan Massif and Yangtse River, the city offers great natural scenery just outside its limits, with its famous scenic lake standing out as the highlight. The lake connects with the 72 artesian wells that spring up across the city, forming small brooks and creating a kind of water network across Jinan. Excellent shopping opportunities abound, with many modern malls across town, while a host of local restaurants offer the chance to enjoy Jinan’s own cuisine. Getting around on a Jinan tour is made easier by the inexpensive, well-organized public bus transport network. Just outside the city, you can see the “thousand Buddhas statues” carved in a steep cliff overlooking 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.
