This is a big lake, with Willow trees decorating the river bank and boat for ride in the lake. Will see children practicing paintings / senior citizen playing musical instrument such as Er Hu.

I went here with my dad today, and although it was extremely cold, the Daming lake is extremely beautiful, you can see the place where high officials in old times had banquets and the guesthouse for out of town officials. The lake itself is lovely to look at and I would suggest taking a boat ride in summer time. You... More
