There are many entrances to West Lake, since West Lake is actually several lakes joined together by bridges. So before you go, you should take a look at the map and check their website to see what you would like to see. If you have not been to Suzhou you will quite enjoy this Chinese garden 惠州西湖丰渚园, at one of... More

Excellent for relaxing stroll, and a museum about Su Dong Po and his time in Huizhou is worth visiting

We started out across from Kande International Hotel, close to Chao Jing Men (朝京门) on foot towards Dong Da Men (东大门)which seems to be the main entrance gate to where most of the action is happening. I noted that there is a bike trail going on the outer rim of the lake. No bikes are allowed after the Dong Da... More

Walk through the main route from road and trees belong two sides. Boat shop, food kiosk, stone landscape...etc let the leisure walk interesting. It is very good for leisure and the lake is beautiful.

Safe to describe it as a poor man's version of Hangzhou's West Lake. You can start in the northeast corner around the Kande hotel and walk it clockwise at a leisurely pace in 3-4 hours. There are plenty of photogenic spots. I didn't find as many nice waterfront eating & drinking spots as I would have hoped. Could use some... More
