A large artificial lake surrounded by five star large hotels, starbucks and swan boats on the lake. Nothing wrong with that but not my thing!

This place was really good fun, sat and ate good food in one of the many restaurants dotted around, but the MAJOR attraction were the swanboats. Super fun!

It is a nice lake and especially during the morning. You may come here for a jog if you like, or have a breakfast here looking at the lake and enjoy the scenery. Chairs are available, just get the best spot you like and snap a lot of picture as you wish.

Lake is lovely, artificially created. Nice walkways and public gardens around. There is children complexes around. Looks like a favorite family vacation destination...

We chose to stay in a hotel beside this lake. A perfectly lovely view from the hotel room. On the lake - little swan- shaped pedal boats you can hire. Quaint!
