Daming Lake
Daming Lake
Our guide will pick you up at the airport or the railway station and then transfer you to the hotel for check in. It is better that you arrive in Jinan before 14:00 pm. Today, our first destination is Daming Lake - a natural lake with lush willows and gorgeous lotuses. Painted boats row leisurely through the lake back and forth.

When traveling to Jinan, a visit to the spring is a must, for it is a famous "Springs City" boasting hundreds of springs. Our guide will accompany you to Baotu Spring, which tops the list of Jinan's famous springs and is the earliest to be recorded in history. Water bursts out from the three outlets, creates thunderous sounds and sprays water jets. Here, you can appreciate the ancient pavilions and halls reflecting in the clear water which create a landscape virtually emulating paradise.

I am afraid that the official taxi drivers are not willing to go to Tai'an because of the distance. Thus you are suggested to hire a private car. Generally speaking, the fare is CNY250 to 350 for the single trip.

Have the flowers started to blossom in Jinan Buihua Park? And anywhere else can I see flowers blossom when I visit Jinan mid-next week (i.e. 27 to 29 March)
Also, is traffic congestion a problem in Jinan?
How much time will it take to take a taxi from Jinan to Qufu? Is the road OK? Can I visit Qufu with the taxi or better with tricycle?

Some of the flowers started to blossom in the end of March, such as white magnolia flower, and you can see it in Baihua Park. Most flowers will start to blossom in April. If you want to see Sakura, Wulongtan Scenic Area is a good place.

It takes around 1.5 hours to take a taxi from Jinan to Qufu. The road condition is ok, you may ask the driver to take the expressway. Besides, there are also high speed train and shuttle bus to Qufu, the train ride takes about 40 minutes and the bus journey takes around 3.5 hours.

Qufu is not a big city and the tourist attractions are not far from each other. You may choose to get around by taxi or riding bikes.
