Things to Do in Jinan
Marco Polo once left praise for this city and you’ll easily be able to see why. Thousand Buddha Mountain, Baotu Spring and Daming Lake, with its temples, pavilions and landscaped islands, have turned this city into a lovely, fresh corner of the world. For a glimpse into China’s past, be sure to visit Shandong Museum with its large collection of provincial artefacts, spanning eras from the Neolithic Longshan culture to the Ming dynasty.
Jinan is well known for being the home of the popular Shandong cuisine, characterised by quick stir-fried, braised and deep-fat fried vegetables and fish.
You won’t want to miss the delightful festivals either! For example, the Lantern Festival in Baotu Spring Park, the Lotus Festival and the Double-Nine Festival on Thousand Buddha Mountain are truly memorable tourist experiences.
