Performance at the open West Lake, Xihu. Amazing show with romantic storyline, classical costumes, and music. The highlight is that it gives the impression that the whole show was done on water. Maybe, that's the reason that the show is called 'Impression". Just a word of caution - if its cold weather, do bring a warm jacket, as the wind... More

This was a lovely thing to experience on a breezy summer evening. It's a light show with beautiful Chinese music that tells a love story. At first I thought it was the story of the White Serpent and The Scholar, but it's not. I was lucky enough to snag VIP seats, which were right in front of the action. I'd... More

Impressions west lake is a fantastic show and it is very unique in many ways. The show itself is performed in the lake and look like the performers are walking on water. This is quite an illusion rather they are walking on a stage under water. They create a water fall s well during the show. The s story is... More

Colossal performances were very good, with a combination of light and water effects but unfortunately I do not really understand the story behind the show. However still entertaining.

Impressive - the stage is built on water and stretches to a wide area. The lights added a different feel to the west lake which will stunned you. Bad cheoreography - good dance movements and beatiful but no meaning to the choreography. Overall, still entertaining.

Impression Hangzhou is a production by renowned director Zhang Yimou who is the director of the Beijing Olympics opening and closing ceremony, - You get an idea of how impressive the choreography is. They cleverly set the stage in Westlake itself (the stage is a platform just a little under the surface so performers look like they are floating on... More

This is an evening show produced by the acclaimed Zhang Yimou. It is an excellent show and I will recommend everyone visiting Hangzhou to see it.

The sound and light show takes place in the evening, literally on the lake of the Westlake. The show take place opposite the Yuefei Temple. So you can get tickets at the ticket counter after a visit to Yuefei temple before heading somewhere else before returning in the evening for the show. Do note that the show starts only after...

From the photos I'm seeing, looks like there are two versions of this attraction. I will talk about the free fountain show. The show is scheduled hourly, but the best part is the night show. I was there during winter so 7 PM was the best time. The water movement is very beautiful and it is totally worth to watch.
