This lake, that might be better described as an inland see is very big. There is a road around the outside shore and another road that actually runs through the centre of the lake, however at the moment they are building a tunnel under the lake so many roads have been diverted from the original route and fences and barriers...

Though the view was somehow blocked because of tunnel construction but our guide took us to a nice place where we could enjoy the nice air with calmness all around. Nice place to visit.

Nothing so special. Its really big. You can call it sea instead of lake. You should not come to wuhan to see that lake but if you are in wuhan you should see it.

Benn there, took a boat tour by dusk. Plluted place as everytning else. As you´re in Wuhan, where no touristics things, could be something. I recomend you to go to Han Street by late afternoon, and from there take the boat

East Lake is massive and there is loads to do there. It's difficult to review a lake as it is basically a body of dormant water. If you live in the city then it is a nice place to visit as the watery bits have no buildings on them. I played airsoft (which the locals call CS, after CounterStrike) and... More

The lake is good a quite and short evening stroll. It is not as scenic as the West Lake of Hangzhou though. A lot of lotus flower can be found along the lake side, but it is winter time and they are all withered. It must be a magnificent sight in summer. On one side of the lake you can... More

Beautiful natural scenery, but unfortunately due to the deterioration of the environment management and development in China, resulting in equally serious impact. Wuhan tourists need to stop and find a good place, sitting in the lake slowly realize. There are near Wuhan Botanical Garden is a good place for leisure.

The fish ponds were fun to see. Some beautiful photo spots! A lovely place to visit, and much too large for one day.

The East Lake is said to be huge and beautiful. Huge indeed but the surrounding facilities are aged. Since there is not much happening in Wuhan, the lake area is a good escape for many local people. But I could only say that it is just a lake, a big lake.
