Jinan has an alias of the Spring City (Quan Cheng) because of over 700 natural springs run through the city. Among them, the Baotu Spring is the most famous attraction.
Located in the center of Jinan, the Baotu Spring Park neighbors the Qianfo Shan to the south, Quancheng Square to the east and the Daming Lake to the north. The Baotu Spring flows from the underground caves. Its largest steam flows at a rate of 240,000 cubic meters per day. Waters gush from three spring holes together creating a sound like thunder. The water of the spring is pure and sweet, and is drinkable. You can get to the park via bus No. 11.
Quancheng Square is the center of downtown Jinan. The spring sculpture in the center represents the numerous springs in the city and can be called the architectural symbol of Jinan.
Heihu Spring ranks as the second largest spring for its water flow and is located in the south of the city. It is the second on the must-go attractions of Jinan.
Thousand-Buddha Mountain (Qianfo Shan) is a scenic destination for the Buddhism Culture. Since the Chinese Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), the temple fair is held on the mountain on the ninth day of the ninth Chinese lunar month. You can get to the Park by taking tourist bus K51, 2 and 33.
Additionally, if the time is not pressing, you can go to visit Shandong Provincial Museum, which covers the nature and history of the ancient Qi and Lu States. This would be an interesting thing to do in the city.
