Interesting walks and boat rides

took a lot of photos around this area. Very quaint and picturesque and even on wet sundays the locals are still out walking. Take a bike ride.... worth the effort!

We came here on 3 Jan 2016 and it rained the whole day and was foggy, cold and wet. Given our experience Winter visits are bit dodgy when mist and fog cover the whole landscape all day long. We walked part of the Su Causeway and saw nothing beyond 30ft and it was thus a wasted as many of Xi... More

There are two well-known causeways running across West Lake in Hangzhou – Bai Causeway (白堤) and Su Causeway (苏堤), which are both named after the poet-governors of Hangzhou – Bai Juyi (772–846) in Tang Dynasty and Su Dongpo ( 1037 – 1101) in Song Dynasty respectively. Su Causeway is a great place for walking or biking during your Hangzhou tour.... More

Su Causeway is one of three man-made causeways connecting different parts of the expansive West Lake in Hangzhou. The others are Bai Causeway and Yanggong Causeway, but Su Causeway, without doubt, is the most scenic. It was built during the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127 AD) and was named after Su Dongpo, a great poet and painter. He was once governor... More

I think everyone in Hangzhou was walking the causeway the day we were there! There is a little train that you can take to travel in either direction and I recommend doing this one way as the causeway is very long.

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 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
