one of the big open air shows set up by Zhang Yimou (director of movies like "Raise the Red Lantern", "Hero"and the opening of the Olympics"); it's based on an ancient (and famous) local legend. The show is set in the lake, and it's surroundings are the stage. If you are into shows/spectacles, and based on the above ingredients, this... More

The best time to see this show would be at the end of July or in August when the rains have stopped as it is an outdoor affair. There were loads of mosquitoes and we got bitten especially on our feet. It is a high quality show (although, we felt that the dancers were not as uniform in their movements... More

I went to this show with brother after the recommendation of another Expat that I met along the lake. At first I was skeptical because of the price, but it was definitely worth it. Other people are complaining that they were lost during the show because there was no english. However 1. You do not need to know the story... More

I was told that this show was designed by the same artist who designed the opening for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. It's a fantastic show using lights, dancing, and West Lake to tell the famous love story of West Lake. It might help if you learn the story before going to the show.

The story in the show is somehow popular among chinese But because they don't have the English explanation we don't really understand the plot Booked the ticket online, you can get the VIP Ticket for 260RMB Which is the same price for the basic seats It last for one hour After the show the traffic jam is inevitable

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!

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
