The provincial capital of Shandong, China, Jinan is an attractive city close to the Yellow River and the Tai’an hills. The city has many wells, hence its nickname of the City of Springs. Whether planning a business trip or a vacation, book your flights to Jinan with EVA Air for in-flight comfort, top-class services, and reliability.
There are more than 70 ancient springs across Jinan, some with more water than others. The most beautiful and popular include Five Dragon Pool, Black Tiger Spring, and Baotu Springs. Combining nature and culture, Daming Lake Park has a large boating lake, lovely landscaped areas, temples, pagodas, play areas, and a selection of amusement rides. Hero Mountain is another nice place to enjoy the outdoors, with walking trails and pretty views. Alternatively, climb the many steps up Thousand-Buddha Hill for sweeping vistas and to explore caves, towers, pavilions, and temples. Spring City Park, Hero’s Hill, and Huayang Palace are other local scenic spots. You can learn more about the area at Shandong Provincial Museum, pick up local handicrafts, curios, and antiques at the Culture Market, upgrade your electronics at the Technology Market, and take a trip to the ancient Great Wall of Qi State. Try the local Lu cuisine too, considered to be among China’s top cooking traditions.
The summer months are hot and rainy, while the winter months are cold and windy. While you can still enjoy a trip to Jinan during these months, summer and autumn have the most pleasant weather conditions.
