Jinan (Shandong Province) -- area code +86-531


General Information

    Jinan is just a short hop by high speed train from Beijing (about 1.5 hours as of May 2012), on your way to Shanghai or Qingdao. What a surprise this city is: clean, modern, vibrant and full of interest both in the city and the surrounding countryside. Famous for its dozens of scenic natural springs, many of which are right in the city center, and offering both hyper-modern malls plus quaint and charming shopping streets. Wander around Daming Lake at dusk on a warm evening to encounter all manner of Chinese leisure activites from solo backwards walkers to high-speed group strollers, disco line dancers to acrobatic skaters.

    Population is around 7 million (that's about 300,000 Utopians).

Baotu Springs, Jinan (c) 2012 by John Goss

    • Baotu Springs

        This picturesque public park in the city center is a must-see, especially for its collection of traditional gardens, architecture and natural springs that the city is famous for.

Daming Lake, Jinan (c) 2012 by John Goss
Bars and Clubs

    • Lanco

    • Landiao

        The club is situated in or near Fo Shan Jie St somewhere behind the Silver Plaza. The doors are painted bright orange and it is across the street from a hot pot restaurant. Bigger than Lanco. There's KTV, a show and a disco afterwards. The drinks are cheap enough and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. It also seems to be a favorite with lesbians. Open till late.

    • Shen Lan Jiu Bar
        Off Qancheng Rd (first street to the left after the canal, 100m in on the left)

        Happy young crowd, no entrance charge. Smoky. Karaoke. Occasional great drag show (tatty frocks and torn stockings). Live (usually falsetto) singing - which was quite impressive. Just a little English spoken at the bar. Young crowd.

Fulong Jie shopping street, Jinan (c) 2012 by John Goss

    • Fulong Jie

        This old-fashioned shopping lane is filled with all sorts of traditional snack foods, many of which are unique and fast disappearing from the urban landscape.
