Kunming Lake is the largest lake or the main scene of the entire Summer Palace. It covers three quarter of the landscape in Summer Palace, that is 2.2 square Kilometers land. You can get a great view of the lake from Tower of Buddhist Incense. You can cruise around the lake to reach different parts of the garden. For example, you can take a boat from Glowing Clouds and Holyland Archway to South Lake Island. I prefer to walk around the lake and walked across the Seventeen-arch Bridge to South Lake Island. This is how you can enjoy the garden and lake views from different angles. From South Lake Island, you can look over to the Longevity Hill.

In Chinese: 昆明湖 (Kun Ming Hu)

Directions: In Summer Palace.
