Our hotel sat near the lake. Nice for a stroll or even a run. I only walked part of it, but a coworker walked the entire circumference in under four hours. Pay attention to the pollution levels.

Came here to see the "ku zi" building. Locals call it that because it resembles a hanging pair of jeans hahaha. There's an art gallery nearby with interesting exhibitions.

Enjoyed waking up daily with a view over the Jinji Lake, when staying at the Crown Plaza. The lake itself is worth a stroll too, and has some good restaurants in the Li Gong Di area.

Beautiful lake.....some parts of the lake are very close to nature. Some of the malls are too close to the lake...creates a congestion of people....this could have been better planned.

The best lake to walk along the side of the water with the lights. The best time to visit this place is at nights because of the lightings. It's beautiful. And. Advised to visit in summers because evening there will be a musical fountain show.

The best area to walk around and enjoy the lake is probably Li Gong Di. Lucky for me, it's only 10 minutes away. It's free, clean, and has a few restaurants. I can't recommend any particular places, because restaurants have a way of opening for a while, then shutting. Despite the beauty of the area, it's hard to get established,... More

Walking by Jinji lake is great and love the restaurants around. It get cold at night these days. Had dinner a Regalia Thai and was very good. I definitely will come back and probably also run around the lake.

This is probably one of the best lakes with beautiful landscape and sculptures I have ever visited in China. The best of all, it's FREE, not like many other places in China collect entry fee. Moreover, it's clean! Most ideal place for a family get-away or couples to have a sweet date :)

Jin Ji Lake has become the place to be for people looking to take a quiet stroll or get a meal. There are many restaurants and bars around the lake with the majority located in Li Gong Di.

Jinji Lake is in the heart of Suzhou and easily accessed from multiple points in the city. It is a great place to go for a walk or jog, or to sightsee the spectacular landscape and buildings in Suzhou, day or night. There are a multitude of good restaurants on the western shores, as well as on the northeast corner.... More
