I don't know why this place is so popular. It is just a kaolin mine that has filled with toxic water. If you need to see it you only need 5 minutes. It is 200m of the airport road so easily done.

It's a very poor imitation of a lake, more like water puddles gathered in craters left behind by miners, which makes for a pretty picture IF the sun is high in the sky. It will take you like 10 minutes to get a shot which...More

Ex mining area that now has blue waters on the site. The area is surrounding with wooden fence and entering the site is prohibited. So you can only take a picture from behind the fence.

The lake is extraordinarily beautiful blue. Unfortunately, we cannot go down since it’s restricted. However, it’s still worth to be visited.
