Enjoy a part of a day walking around a lake with many temples. Places to eat along the way and plenty of public bathrooms. Can be very hot so bring that umbrella and your camera for all the pictures you're going to want to take.

We did it via a cruise line tour. I think some people went there via taxi. I don't know whether public transport is an option.
