It is recommended to go to the Blue Moon Valley to see, where the lake is blue, and the valley was crescent-shaped, far away like a blue moon inlaid at the foot of the dragon mountain. At the same time it is also called the White River, because the bottom of the river bed by the white limestone composition, the rain will become white when the water is really amazing. If not tired, it is recommended that you do not take those electric cars, because the best scenery on the lake, driving will be missed instantly, and the distance did not imagine so far.

But waiting for you to really go, riding a booing a three hundred or five did not come down If you do not play, it is difficult to come back, only their own in the village to find a car, but the city of Lakescape to confirm the great.
