Walked around the Daming Lake park yesterday for a couple of hours. Very scenic area in the busy heart of Jinan. Worth it to stay till evening when all the lights turn on over the entire park.

Place of great cultural significance and also great for sightseeing. Take a stroll around the garden, but you probably need to read up a bit on the place to appreciate the significance of the monuments and pavilions!

Enter the free side, there is no difference with the paid one. Very nice and big hit with the locals. Lots of people being active or socialising.
