There two long beaches in the lake which divide the lake into five scenic areas. Weeping willows are plant on both sides of the long beaches and the lake are covered by lotus, leaving the whole area a good place for sightseeing. The five scenic areas are made up of Mid_ lake Island, Shuiyue Pavilion in the southeast, Bamboo Island in the northeast, Hulu Island in the south and Haixin Pavilion in the west.
