A must place if you join tours otherwise just skip it as there's nothing to see, or any interesting shops. There's a wet market but totally disappointed. You will see caged cats and they look hopeless, waiting to be killed. Horrible!!!

This is a just a community park for the locals, there isn’t any significance to the site. It isn’t scenic and has a very shallow history so there is very little that you can relate.

West Lake is unique in my experience. Various islands, bridges, sculptures, and buildings dot the area in and around the lake. There are restaurants and souvenir shops as well as paddle boat rentals. As this is one of the best known attractions of Huizhou, it's worth spending an afternoon to look around.

Okay for an evening stroll. Nothing much unless you want to know more about Su Dongpo, a famous poet in the Song Dynasty.

This is a great way to view these lakes. Took one with the wife and her friend and videoed the whole thing! It's funny but every photo/video one takes in China comes out looking like it's overcast outside! The smog is so bad in most places there!

The place is nice and clean compared to other parks in the city. The lake and its park lay in the heart of Huizhou which makes it reachable from many routes and directions. There are many walkways ranging from big main ones that are surrounded with the water to small walkways through trees and traditional themed shops. Absolutely a nice... More

Nice place to walk in the end of a busy day, inside the city, near to everything in huizhou, it is easy to access, good atmosphere, plenty of trees composing the trial in the middle of the lake. And to end the day a lot of good restaurants around

After living in Shenzhen for nearly 6 years, I thought it was about time to visit the city of Huizhou. I'd seen countless brochures selling new house in the area, and it looked like the biggest satellite boom town in the area. We took the 1.5 hour bus ride there from the Luohu bus station. Cost of the bus was... More

Comparing to Hangzhou West Lake, Huizhou West Lake is compact and delicate. Its lotus pond is so amazing beautiful. It is a peaceful and relaxing place to enjoy the sunset there. You can also have the chance to share the joyful gathering with thousand birds returning from their hard work in a day.

This was my first trip to China, and was for business. We stayed at the Kande hotel across from the West Lake, which was very nice. And had a free day to walk the West Lake area. It was very pretty, and I would recommend the walk around it.
