I made the mistake of going to East Lake for the first time on my bicycle on a National Holiday. It seems this is the thing to do (sans bike!!) and understandably so, as the weather was good, and it was a day off. It...More

Walking along the river is really nice. Impressive how large this river is. Has some similarities to the Bund in Shanghai, just that buildings are not all as modern. There is a lot of space to walk and cars are a little away, so not...More

Said to be the largest lake in the area. It’d be better to visit in via the parks around it, which would offer better view and entertainment.

The new park is beautiful and with convenient stops or food or needs along the way. We stopped at an art exhibit and watched the sunset and enjoyed our bike ride around the lake. Especially at night.

Nice place for photo and walk. Relaxing place where one can take a stroll and take picture. View of the lake was fantastic. They do offer boat rides which is quite costly.
