The Baihua Lake is divided into three parts by islets. The South Lake, Middle Lake and North Lake. Water in the lake is clean and tepid, and the green hills standing by the lake resemble graceful beauties. There are more than 50 scenic spots here and 23 of them are open to visitors. Bird lsland is one of the most famous one, a natural habitat of different kinds of birds. When spring comes, hundreds of birds float over the island, which makes it a fantastic view for the visitors.
In addition to visiting these attractions, travelers can also get on a ship to fully enjoy the beautiful lake scenery. Some dozens of families live on the islands in Baihua Lake and berth their boats by the islands. Therefore, Baihua Lake looks more poetic and picturesque in the mist. Although Baihua Lake provides amazing scenery from March to October, you are suggested to visit it during the springtime from March to late May. In spring, birds fly through the sky and widgeons play in the water. What a lovely scene! Besides, with all flowers blooming together in spring, the lake is in a blaze of color. And that is why the lake is given the Chinese name ‘Baihua’, which literally means hundreds of flowers.
