Top Descriptions

Compared to others in the area (say ), Jinji is a relatively small lake. Nevertheless, its presence in the bustling city of is a great addition. It is large enough to have more than one point of interest when visiting, so one can stroll along the ‘rainbow road’ and enjoy the musical fountain on one side, or hit some of the bars and occasional live music on the other. There is also a scenic spot on one of the two man-made islands here.

Top Descriptions

The Tiger Hill scenic spot is perhaps one of the most worthwhile attractions in . Considering it is in the city, this park has relatively big grounds with a mix of flower displays, ancient buildings, and a walking path. The famous Tiger Hill pagoda is reportedly over 1000 years old and is perhaps worth a trip to the scenic area for alone.

Top Tips

If you have come this far by taxi, consider taking the on foot back into the town centre. It seems to be one of the quietest walks through the city.
Although the park can be busy, the walking path that circles it is still pleasant to stroll (especially when compared with the even busier ).
To reach the pagoda requires climbing a couple of flights of stairs, but this is well worth it for the sight of this ancient tower.
