Don't laugh at me too hard. I had no idea what I was visiting. I was looking for something else, people were buying tickets and entering, so I thought it was what I was looking for, but it wasn't. Lots of amusement park rides, boat...More

A lovely park with lakeside walks and pavilions. The water lilies are amazing and the tea house a tranquil spot to sit back and watch the world go by

This is a small lake in a small park in the city. It is a great place to see local residents exercise and socialize but I think Xuan lake is nicer with more to do.

Visited in Nov 2012, this is one of the most scenic lakes I've seen. No comparison with the West Lake in Hang Zhou but it's still worth a while to see. The surrounding are peaceful with willow trees, stone bridges, and other palaces. Nice indeed!
