to connect the lakes, clean the river bed, build bridges and repair
roads. The project of Two River and Four Lakes was started at that
time. The Two River and Four Lakes nowadays connect rivers and lakes
with various attractions. The lake banks are paved with slabe covered
in lush trees, convenient for travelers to walk and enjoy the scenery.
The night scene of the lakes and rivers are particularly charming
when the area is colorfully lit. At night, cruise bottles shuttle
to and fro o-n the lakes, travelers and local strollers walk around
, folk artist give performance o-n the lake bank to passerby.
