Jinji Lake is now surrounded by modern buildings and activities. On a clear day (getting fewer and fewer), you can get amazing views on almost any side of the lake. My favourite is at the Li Gong Di dam on the south side of the lake. There are a number of very high quality restaurants there that will give you... More

This claims to be the Lake Geneva of East China, but not really the case. Not much activity to do around the lake except some restaurant area along a causeway extending in the lake. A boardwalk to walk along, and a kitch ferris wheel. Summer time has light shows that are supposed to be impressive. But the lake in itself... More

The area is well maintained and convenient to the Courtyard hotel. There is an easy jogging route from the hotel and back. You pass some nice shops too.

The light show is what this is all about. If your hotel loans bikes out then an average fit person should ride around the lake. It will take some time but there you will find surprises around every corner. Good food nearby and a great starting point for an evening out.

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.
