“Pond dry, park interesting.”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Walking through the park we saw many people going about their routine, parents and children, old people, etc. Under one shelter a band played traditional instruments, adding to the ambiance.

“Dry, but interesting.”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

The pool was dry and cracked when we were there, but the walk through the park was interesting.

“Dried up”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We were disappointed when we got there - the lake had dried up several months earlier and it looks like its going to be a long time before it gets back to being 'picture perfect'.

“Don't go if it's cloudy”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

It's a 10 min walk from the waterwheel in old lijiang town and you need the receipt of the 80 rmb tax to enter. We went there early to avoid the crowd around 8 am and saw old folks doing their morning exercise dance. Quite interesting as this is uniquely china.
The pool was only half filled and the sky cloudy . It was also raining. I think that the postcard look that is typical of this place comes with a blue sky and the jade mountains in the background so go to this attraction only if the weather is good and not cloudy. Worth a visit if you are in old town Lijiang.

“Very nice place”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

that's a very nice and peaceful place to see if you are fed up about the crowded atmosphere of lijiang. You should know that they will ask you to pay the conservation entrance fee, 80yuans...so make your choice but for me that was the best site in lijiang but dont really worth that price.
