“A great place to recharge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

The lake is a great place to relax. The park is very big and is an ideal place for a good work out by walking around. Alternative, you can get on a boat for a lazy ride to see the park from a different perspective. You can choose to get a self driven boat or get on a bigger one and be driven around. I was there in April and there is no lotus in bloom. I was told that it can be very pretty if they do.

This is a big lake, with Willow trees decorating the river bank and boat for ride in the lake. Will see children practicing paintings / senior citizen playing musical instrument such as Er Hu.

“Daming Lake is a beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

Here will think the sentence: Do you remember the Daming Lake Summer charge it? Although the historical atmosphere of Daming Lake is not heavy, but the scenery was quite good , especially in summer there to see the lotus , the lake is very large, the other half on the inside accompanied seen riding on a boat in a lake or a good feeling lotus drops . Here is divided into two parts, the north should be charged $ 30 a person, you can go in summer , the other to the south of the toll-free season on the line , here near the train station , the traffic is very convenient.
This is a park , in the middle of a lake , the lake many cultural landscape. Daming Lake in two parts, north and south , north, for a fee, there are three doors , East Gate, North Gate , west gate , respectively, can ticketing , fares 30 yuan , there are half-price student tickets from the East Gate to go along the lake edge has to go, went to the west door , lakeside scenic, beautiful. Lake to lake has two islands of the ship , the fare 10 yuan per person , can go to the lake island back and forth. Out of the west door , the south part of the charge , the scenery is very beautiful, a lot of small pavilion bridge or something. Look in the south and in the north of the lake to see the lake is the same , except that if the thought of the lake north of the island have to buy tickets buy tickets. The scenery is very good, worth seeing

“Even in winter - perfect for a day's relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

I went here with my dad today, and although it was extremely cold, the Daming lake is extremely beautiful, you can see the place where high officials in old times had banquets and the guesthouse for out of town officials. The lake itself is lovely to look at and I would suggest taking a boat ride in summer time. You can see the old with the new here, with the view of the lake and above the hustle and bustle of the city. You can also see old people enjoying their spare time by exercise and tai chi in certain places, admission to Daming Lake is 30 yuan, however, if you want a ticket, which includes everything it is 75 yuan.
