Nice show

Using lighting, music, dance, human movement, and lot of props plus the environment to present the show to audience. Nice show!

This is simply one of the best 1 hours you will spend in your life! The setting is beautiful,the music is superb,and as a spectacle it is simply unrivalled. I have seen countless stageshows,concerts and performances around the world,but I don't think any have been better than this!

I have never seen a show like this, the natural scenery made into a stage and all the actors and actress in perfect symmetry, are just a unique experience

The Hangzhou West Lake. The first thing that comes to mind is must take a boat ride around this lake. Well, yes. But some people are not used to boat rides. So, they may not like it. However, even though may miss the boat ride, is not a total lost and waste of time. Walking around the lake will give... More

We watched the Impression Lijiang 印象丽江 a few years ago and only after that we googled and discovered other Impressions in other parts of China and we were looking forward to go for Impression West Lake. We were impressed with Impression West Lake initially as the play of lights was great and performers seemingly walking on water was awesome. We... More

What an amazing experience to see this romantic folk tale set on the waters of West Lake. The lighting was spectacular & highlighted the beauty of the lake's surroundings. The music was good & the huge cast & choreography were breathtaking. Although the evening was warm we were cold & damp sitting by the edge of the lake for over... More

Impression Westlake is a 1-hour award winning open-air musical extravaganza created by renowned film director, Zhang Yimou on the West Lake of Hangzhou at night. A dazzling light display turns the lake’s natural surroundings into an intricate part of the show. The stage was built 3cm below the water. The performers seem to be walking, running, dancing on the water.... More

Great show set on the west lake. You don't have to speak Chinese to enjoy it. We went in the fall, but spring or summer would also be nice.

Having seen plenty of similar shows my expectations were not very high and I was nicely surprised. The show is just the right length (1h), the effects are spectacular and the organisation (if you don't count finding your ticket agent in the sea of people by the tourniquet) surprisingly good.
