“A nice lake.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

It's nice and cool lake to visit in the evening. They even have restaurants, shops and food stands along the side of the lake. You can enjoy some relaxing time with friends and family. But be sure to bring some money for treats if you come during a hot day.

“Nice, serene and worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We were a little tired when we got there, so we rode on the buggy instead of walking through the whole place. Too bad that the bird park is no longer there but it's a beautiful place. There were many people but not overly crowded. We also rode on one of the boats. Nice experience.

“Very beautiful and relaxing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Hard to think of anything I didn't like. The place can be reached by metro and there is no entrance fee. I would highly recommend you to spend a whole morning here and simply sit around the lake or take a slow walk around it, if you are here for a holiday. It's simply relaxing while you get away from the madding crowd.

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

A pretty and large lake and surprisingly natural. Overlooked by part of Nanjing's city wall, walking around this lake is very relaxing.

“Vast expanse of a lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Huge lake for enjoying time with family. The feeling of being surrounded on all sides with water once you reach some distance into it is really relaxing and liberating. Ideal spot for couples.

Tip: If you are not in a health conscious mood, better to take a motor boat to enjoy the vastness of the lake. Also take 2 hours if possible as it will really helpful in relaxing.
