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.

We dared to be at the lakeside in time for the water show. We weren't disappointed. The colors and music and fire and water 'dancing' were fun for kids of all ages.

I visited Jinji Lake during a recent trip to Suzhou. There is a walking path around the lake and it is pleasant to take. The lake views are nice and there are interesting bridges, statues and other things to see. Although some areas were more crowded than others on the day I visited, you can enjoy being out by the water in a quiet and peaceful spot.

I was staying at the Crowne Plaza on the corner of the lake and woke every morning to the beautiful view accress the lake. On the far side, there id the cultural centre, moon harbour, the fun fair and some great restaurants, including a good tipenyaki and a German place that brews it's own beer.

There are good restaurants and bars along JinJi Lake, especially at "hu-bin-xin-tian-di" or "Rainbow Walk" Note: if you take a taxi just say "hu bin xin tian di" if they don't know it go to XianDai DaDao, take a right on Xing Gang Jie and you will see a "Fruit Music Plaza" sign on your left, have the driver make a u-turn "zhuan tou" or "hui tou" (p.s. "tou" sounds like "toe") and stop in front of the "Fruit Music Plaza sign" then walk up the stairs with the sign on your right and the subway entrance on your left and you will see the lake. Further down there is a Coldstone, Starbucks, and Zapata's (my favorite local hangout). "Li Gong Di" has good restaurants too, as well as bars and clubs. It is also a good place to enjoy a nice walk or jog. The lights at night around the lake are very nice and there is a light show on the lake on... Friday and Saturday evenings (I believe).

Always enjoy Jinji lake area because I stay near that area from the Crown Plaza to Novotel to eating at the W hotel and Suzhou center. I enjoy watching the lake area near the Opera House as well with some good restaurant choices and concerts!

Jinji lake is pretty nice small lake in very urban area of Suzhou. It is located in Industrial Park area, but that said manufacturing is further away.

Lake has plenty of fish, but fishing is allowed only at certain time of the year. It is good to walk, run or cycle near the lake. The observation wheel offers good views. It is possible to go for a boat ride too.

I took the subway to the west part of the lake and arrived around half an hour before the sun set, really nice to see the change and the lights going on around the lake and the city. I was there on a Sunday, so I didn't have the light show. Still very nice for an evening walk. You can rent go-kart-like rides to cycle with a little group, looked fun!
