Lovely gardens and lake

We had a trip around the lake on a boat and a wonder around the gardens, a nice place to relax and not a lot of crowds

This is the causeway that separates the inner Xi Hu and the main Xi Hu so you must walk here to get the full view of how things are. Having said that, this place is so crowded!! It is full of life so loads of eating places, people running, cycling, boating but also there are  tons of tour groups and... More

Always crowded but very nice walk with beautiful views of West lake and surrounding. Bicycles are allowed too but it can be challenging to drive it through the crowd so better you opt for walk.Threes creates a shade and together with breeze from lake make a cool effect so it is not as exhausting stroll as on wider and open...

The Su Causeway is one of the best features of Hangzhou. The man-made structure was built during the North Song Dynasty--which is to say a long, long time ago--and is lined with full-grown willow trees that flutter in the breeze and give pleasant shade. One one side of the causeway is a beautiful vista of Hangzhou City, and on the... More

If you are in Hangzhou, it’s a must do. I’ve mentioned the terrible crowds but just think of it as something to do, it involves exercise and it’s doable. I’m big but I did it. The crowds are something else but it makes the walk slower and gives you a chance to people watch. It would be much nicer and... More

The SU causeway is an easy stroll but about 4 km long! Some nice views to west and at the south end of the pagoda.

I am starting the trip from Kuahong Bridge side (not from Leifeng Pagoda side). We enjoy great scenery photospot (with less crowd) in Yuehu Lake area. I believe during spring and summer, you can enjoy great scenery of Lotus Flower in the Breeze Courtyard. Overall, this is an exciting walk trip. There are lot public seat for you to enjoy... More

Takes about an hour to walk across this long causeway full of chinese tourists and annoying electric carts. A good place to catch the ferry to the island.

Very beautiful and cool place to see. Also interesting to note that the bridges on Kunming lake in the Summer Palace are modeled after the Su causeway and its sibling bridges.
