What to See
Compared with those capital cities or other large and medium-size cities in China, Jinan has few advantages and lacks a metropolitan atmosphere, the highlight being its numerous springs. Some people say Jinan's glamour is not merely its enticing natural beauty, but more the warmth of the local people. The beauty of nature is thin and weak, but the beauty that comes from people will last forever. The city is hospitable and receives visitors from all over the world. Marco Polo once visited it and left words of praise to this city. The Baotu Spring, Daming Lake and the Thousand Buddha Mountain decorate the city as a beautiful garden.
