Lovely lake and surroundings. Nicely authentic China not designed for Western Tourists as such, makes a pleasant change. Water Lilies, water Chestnuts, all here, all natural. Lovely day out where you can take a tour.

A nice place to relax. You can also take a boat trip on the lake and see how water chestnuts are grown.

It takes about 3 hours to complete the tour. Lots of traditional Chinese building. A good place to learn history about China Communist Party. Travelers have to pay 80RMB to enter this place.

This is a little lake with a little boat, a little building with a little of communist party history. Nothing much fancy. I went there a lot as a child, just because it is a historical site for the first Chinese communist party's national meeting....More

In Chinese name these lake called "Nanhu" lake. There are ferry circle services around the park. A 5 or 6 tall Chinese pagoda & bridge style. Some Chinese rooftop decorate style building and willows tree around the lake. Great day out visit.
