    Lotus Lake

    The Lotus Lake Scenic Area combines nature, architecture, and culture. The lake itself is filled with lotus plants which blooms every spring with pretty pink flowers. Nearby are three sets of impressive architecture, the most famous of which is the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas. Located near the water, the twin pagodas as well as the unique entrance and exit of the pagodas (you will enter through the mouth of the dragon and exit through the mouth of the tiger) make for the perfect photo opportunity. The lesser known Ciji Temple and Spring and Autumn Pavilions are spectacular as well.

Even if you are not a religious person, the beautiful architecture of the temples and statues will surely impress you.
