Very relaxing place to visit with family...Very natural and fresh air.... You can spend good time in the weekend. Do not forget to pass by boat.

To us, nothing much. Over sold on all counts. More crowd than beauty to behold. Utterly disappointed.

Its an interesting and pleasant stroll around Da Ming Hu after taking the boat from Baotu Springs. Pleasant and quiet gardens. However exit from the East gate opens onto a bus terminal. Difficult to get a taxi.

This is an absolutely beautiful lake which is well worth a wander around. You can also take a boat ride or do a sort of aquarium activity where you can see what is below the lake (both cost extra). The park is actually open until...More

Very nice Lake and adjacent park, worth to be there at Sunset. Mix of Old style Pagoda with bridges linking the "islands".

The lake area is okay, but don't bother paying to get in. Just go around or the other way around the lake, it's a right tourist scam.
