This was a very nice place to visit and just set and enjoy the surroundings. If you are in the area take time if you have it to visit and enjoy the people and the show.

Yes, the performers did most of the show on water, sometimes just walk on it! It is an outdoor show, so the best season to view it is Spring and Fall.

The story line is easy to understand and the effects of the show is just impressive. Not a moment of boredom - always eagerly waiting for the next scene. We sat at the water platform and had a really close up view of the performance. Excellent show not to be missed when you're in Hangzhou.

The Show is beautiful.. salute to the performer.. it was a 3 degrees night, and they are performing every night in the lake.. i think it must be really cold because the show has a water interaction. better to understand what is the meaning of the show by reading the brochure or browse the internet before you watch it. the...

The West Lake stage is grand. The show is amazing! There is a clear story based on a well known folklore. The music is by world renowned Kitaro Matsuri. Songs are sung by China's own pop song singer star Zhang Liangyin (Jane). There are spectacular scenes such as an elevated waterfall, and innovative dance that involve thundering drums, waving huge... More

The show is based on a well-known traditional love story with a natural setting besides the famous west lake at night. The amount of people with the condition of this play is amazing! The music, lighting, other visual effects and surroundings make us to connect to the historic Chinese culture in an art format. Would highly recommend to those visit... More

I saw this show perfomed just on the lake surface. It is something one must see. Not going to reveal any more details. You MUST see it, especially when you stay at Jinxi Hotel.

If not for the weather (too cold), this will be the best experience we have in Hangzhou. It was really cold on this night (4th December) but the show is worth it.

Show is base on a love story. If you are unaware of the story, just enjoy the performance. Stage is built on the lake, hence performers are seen like floating, dancing and walking on water. Not recommended for kids as show may be a bit boring. As this is an outdoor show, it is not recommended during winter as you... More
