“Average scenery”
Review of Daming Lake

Daming Lake
Ranked #2 of 228 things to do in Jinan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 26, 2013

This place is much less scenic than Hangzhou Westlake. The positive thing is it is less commercialized than the Westlake, nice to come here for a relaxing walk if you happen to be in Jinan.

I used the little mini bus things they have for people to go around the lake. You can, however, walk around but it's huge and walking's not my thing!
It is a lovely place though and worth a visit. It's free if you are over 60.

We have been to Da Ming Lake twice now. Once was last weekend when it was 30C. It was busy but not overpoweringly so. It was full of wedding couples being photographed by the side of little canals. We went back during the week when it was only 13C with a cool wind. It was much quieter but there were still quite a lot of cold looking wedding couples being photographed. It is a great place to escape the traffic and bustle of central Jinan. The area is really big and there are lots of little bridges over little streams and canals. As it is spring the colours are fabulous with lots of different blossoms on the trees and lots of bushes with flaming red colours, along with lovely lilac blossom. There is a spectacular pagoda like Chaoran tower at the eastern end of the lake. Normally I would not award it more than 4 stars from a global perspective but as it is such a great place to go in Jinan I awarded it 5 stars, particularly because of the beautiful spring colours. Note you pay to access some of the lake side, including the park with the springs such as Baotu Spring Park
Nearby are some very atmospheric old streets – the most popular being called, I believe, Water Lily Street with lots of small Chinese fast food outlets.

It is as good or even better than many europian lake bases tourist spots. The lake is fed from a number of natural springs and the ride is lovely. The boat staff could keep it a little more tidy.
