The Rear Lakes are three lakes: the Front Lake (Shicha), the Rear Lake (Houhai) and the Jishui Lake, with Houhai being the largest. The Houhai neighborhood surrounding the lake is known for its exciting nightlife and the many alleyways hiding trendy restaurants, bars like the famous No Name Bar
and stores. Particularly popular with expatriates and young professionals, the Houhai area has become a bohemian-like retreat that is always buzzing with activity. The lake itself sees a lot of activity, especially in the summer when the denizens of Beijing can be found boating in the water.
