The walk is lovely and probably also good to rent a bike to see this. We didn't, put off by the number of people we would have to negotiate. The surroundings are lovely and views are worth the walk, although as is often the case in China, there are too many people without manners and consideration for others which spoiled... More

Take a walk through history on the Su Causeway, but take care because the crowd might overwhelm. There are other similar 'Causeways' on West Lake that are much less crowded and will allow you to appreciate the scenery better.

We rode across this stunning causeway on a spring weekday and it is really beautiful. Bike rental is around 20 yuan per hour and renting a boat 180 for a short relaxing trip. Both well worth it. If possible go very very early, around 06.00 or earlier to avoid the hordes who arrive en masse. If you are really organized... More

Try to avoid visiting this place during the weekend. You cannot bike at the causeway with the amount of people visiting this place. During the time I visited the weather was hazy and the AQI was pretty high about 171. Definitely bring a filtered mask. Overall the scenery was pretty however the amount of people that comes here just makes... More

Su Causeway, as one of the ten West Lake attractions, is very beautiful in spring. This 2797 meters long causeway is lined by green willow trees, pink and red peach blossoms and dotted with culture relics and ancient bridges. After visit the Su Causeway, you can also head for the Fish Viewing at the Flower Pond, Leifeng Pagoda and Prince... More

Absolutely beautiful location to be enjoyed either on foot or by bike. Start early in the day, well BEFORE 8 am and in Springtime I walked at 6 am. Any later and you have crowds of tourists lining up at the Pagoda end, and then the day heats up. It's a long walk - 3 km from one end to... More

Really crowded, chaotic and noisy. We were literally inching our way across the causeway and gave up halfway. Try to visit on a weekday instead where there is less people.

The West Lake is a brilliant pearl embedded in the fertile shores of the East China Sea. As the most renowned attraction in Hangzhou, the West Lake draws tourists from all corners of China and the world. But how to travel around West Lake may be your first concern. By following this itinerary, you’ll catch the best attractions, as well... More
