Sometimes you feel like your body needs cleansing from the hubbub of city life, the East Lake is the place to do this. We paid to enter the East Lake Scenic Area and then took a golf buggy style ride around the main sites. Unfortunately we were on a tight schedule as part of an organised trip and did not... More

East Lake in Wuhan is huge. I believe it's one of the biggest lakes in China, and you can tell. It's very peaceful, at least in January, and you can take hours to walk around the area. There is a beach area and an area that is buoyed off if you would like to swim in the lake. I did... More

It is a beautiful park with a wide variety of scenery - bustling with people. Lots of weddings, families with kids, bikes and picnics. The park is huge so anyone can find a nice place to unwind and relax. Very enjoyable!

The eastern lakes are a popular tourist location as well as for local people. Lots of good walks and also it is great to go on the boats across the lakes. If you go in winter it is very atmospheric as the mist hovers over the water. You'll get lots of good pictures here and there are some historical statues... More

This park was just what we needed. I live and work in Wuhan which means that sometimes I forget to get away and enjoy nature. This park is a perfect little getaway that allowed us to forget that we live in a growing industrial city. We spent hours walking around and enjoy the views. I would love to go back... More

East Lake is a scenic, pretty area in an otherwise (somewhat) lackluster city (from my experience). It was picturesque, and we enjoyed walking the paths and taking in the views -- just be careful of the careening mega-golf carts!

Great place to walk and enjoy the quiet surroundings as well as the abundance of flowers. Take a ride on the lake, its well worth the time.

East Lake is a peaceful oasis of trees and water in the middle of highly urban Wuhan. There are small boats that will take you on lake tours, but they are fairly expensive. In Chinese cities, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the hectic, crowded streets. An afternoon by the lake is a nice antidote.

The east lake is a real beauty! There are many attractions around the lake, such as boat rental, bike rental and more. It is pretty big also. A lot of fishermans around the coast - it really is a place of pure joy. Recommend for anyone that likes to take a walk and discover the beauty of Wuhan
