A slow walk at night along the banks of the Jinji Lake has really exposed the LED facet of the night. With a lot of the locals enjoying walks and activities here, it is also the pride of the locals. What was a lake if now an entertainment spot to many. With hotels, restaurants, bars, and shops popping up nearby,... More

This lake town is really pretty with a China flair. I really enjoyed the "european" feel of this Chinese city. The people were friendly and the food was great.

An excellent place to visit. The water and light show is a marvelous free event on most weekends. Lots of places to eat and drink as you stroll around the lake.

love the view, serenity and the ambience...totally what we need on a holiday, and with plenty of fresh air too. Wasn't too keen on one of the mini shops that had captured a turtle and kept it in a cage that hardly had enuf space for it to move. This was the only sour memory I have of this place.

Because of all the rave reviews, my partner and I decided to head over to Jinji Lake one night during our trip to Suzhou. I read on numerous websites that the Jinji Lake water show and fireworks were both at 8pm every Friday and Saturday night, as well as on holidays. We arrived at the Dongfangzhimen Metro station at about... More

When visited China last year, the tour leader brought us to a beautiful lake in Suzhou. The lake was so large and we visited the quiet part of the lake where there were a lot of pink flamingo statues spreading on the lake. They made the panorama so beautiful with hi-rise building in the background. From distance, we could see... More

The Jinji Lake Area is really a pretty place to be around. To go out for a bite and enjoy the lights. And of course the show. To enjoy the show you should go to Dongfangzhimen . The only thing that's a bit disturbing is the quality of the water. It's pretty dirty. But that's usual...

This place is new and artificial in a city rich in history and culture. But it is a very suitable place for a business man to do a business dinner and drink, for the restaurants and pubs here are all very stylish, gorgeous, and luxurious. Certainly, the price is quite high. I like the draft HB beer in Hoffbrau.
