“Good for a walk”
Review of Shimen Reservoir

Reviewed May 17, 2013

The travelling time from Chongli downtown to the Shimen reservoir was almost 45-50 minutes. On a sunny day in December we decided to walk up the observation deck of the reservoir - a scenic walk, images of hills and their reflection in the water just like the Chinese painting. If there is plenty of time, go for a cruise which took around 45 minutes, or a meal at one of the restaurants nearby which highlighted the fishes caught on the spot. The tourist centre was not even manned by any receptionist. Other than these, this sightseeing spot has nothing more to offer. Maybe good for locals e.g. hiking, but for tourists there's little selling point.
