About Jinan

Jinan has its roots as an ancient city with a long history. Because of its many springs, it is called Quancheng, or ‘Spring City.’ Throughout the area of the old city, there are the four spring systems of Baotu, Heihu, Zhenzhu and Wulongtan, which are not to be missed. Not only does Jinan have the warmth of Daming Lake, it also has the mysterious religious location of the Thousand Buddha Mountain. Qilu-style snack shops can also be found along Furong Street.

Trip Moments

When it comes to "Jinan", many people will think of "Baotu Spring" as a conditional reflection. How many people have gone there before? Among the cities with many springs, Baotu Spring is known as the first of Jinan 72 Springs, and Baotu Spring Park has also been rated as a national A-level tourist scenic garden. In addition to the Baotu Spring, there are more than 30 spring pools in the park, and Liuxuquan is one of them. Liuxuquan is named after the many willow trees around it, the bubbles in the springs, the spring flowers and strings, and the perennial "springs are full of butterflies, flying and dancing." The essence of Jinan City seems to be condensed in the spring water of Baotu Spring. Crisp air, and beautiful views, like the spring of Jinan City, it is a long-lasting experience. The spirit of Jinan people seems to be concentrated in the spring water of Baotu Spring.

Spring water is the eternal cover of Jinan and the city's aura of Jinan. Baotu Spring and Jinan Qianfo Mountain and Daming Lake are also known as the three famous places in Jinan. Baotu Spring is the first of the "72 Springs" in Jinan. Known as "the world's first spring." There are not many cities in the world with spring water, but the dense springs, excellent water quality, rich history and culture, and the common ownership of one city can only be seen in Jinan. In August 2013, it successfully applied for the national 5A level tourist attraction. According to scientific tests, Baotu Spring Water is in line with national drinking water standards and is ideal natural drinking water that can be directly consumed. I am serious about recommending "Old Jinan Big Bowl Tea" for everyone, for which you don't even need money. After enjoying the leisurely day at the spring, the rich Qilu style and the landscape enjoyed the tea with other people there.

On a spring morning, walk in the quaint and clean Furong Street, go and stop, and stop to appreciate the Jinan Mingfu City, which has been in existence for more than 600 years. It has witnessed the transformation and evolution of history and witnessed the rise and fall of one dynasty. The historic old town, which has undergone changes in the world and has gradually become vicissitudes, stood in the wind, rain and the sun. The imprint of time did not make it outdated. But the carving of it was more charming and more appealing. In the early morning of April, the sun has been unscrupulously pouring in this small northern city. Clouds spread across the edge of the city in a graceful shape. The wires overhead are intertwined to form a blue sky, and the sun passes through the gaps of the leaves. The mottled shadows are projected on the ground, and the ground is full of scattered fine sunlight.

When I arrived in Jinan, I didn't go to Daming Lake. It is located in the northeast of the city center of Jinan and is made up of many springs. When I mention Daming Lake, I think of Xia Yuhe on the shore of Daming Lake. Daming Lake is known as the “Pearl of the Spring City”. The scenery is beautiful. The lake is full of fish, walking along the shore feels like you are walking in a painting. The mountains are dotted with pavilions. The clear sky is like a huge color picture. After entering the gate, take a boat ride to the Li Pavilion in the middle of the lake, where you will take another boat to Tiegongyu where you will disembark. You then walk along the lake towards the Arctic Pavilion, take the ring route to the Laoshe Memorial Hall, and finally return to Daming Lake Road.
