Plenty of local colour and photographic opportunities here. The only thing is it is very hot when 38 degrees. One needs 3-4 hour here to absorb all the sights , maybe longer.

Worth to visit when it's good weather. Beautiful view when you take a boat and take some nice photo.

One of the top attractions in Jinan city center. It is a place for relaxation and leisure stroll. Take time to walk through the sideways and visits the gardens.

Daming Lake is a good place for a stroll. In addition to the lake itself, you'll see people dancing, doing martial arts, photographing brides, playing musical instruments or singing. One part of the lake requires an admission fee, much of it doesn't. There are restaurants...More
