Daming Lake in Jinan, Shandong

The 465,000-square-metre Daming Lake is the number one tourist resort of Jinan. Its name first occurred in the Commentary on the Waterways Classic. While the lake extends as far as the eye can see, verdant trees heap up a rich foliage that effectively blocks the sky and conjure up a picturesque scene.

The lakeside is graced with pavilions, terraces, chambers and kiosks that are laid out in a tasteful way. Famous scenic spots include the Nanfeng Temple, the Lixia Pavilion, the Beiji Tower, and Huipo Pavilion. The Xiayuan Garden, situated in the Garden of the Daming Lake, was built in 1909; as a replica of the Tianyige Tower of Ningbo, it is known as the number one garden in Jinan.
