This was my first time watching the show and although I didn't understand much of what was going on, it was an impressive performance. The use of lights was amazing and watching the performers run and dance across the river was stunning. When the lit up stage rose from the water, it just looked surreal! It was like nothing I...

Didn't expect liking it this much. Was moved and impressed by the performance. I guess it's a personal thing.... I liked it a lot, and would happily go again next time I visit Hangzhou.

Because I was simply overwhelmed by the Yangzhou's Impression show, I wanted to see this one, before I left China. If I had not seen the other one first, I would have rated it 5 stars... so maybe, my opinion is tainted... If I hadn´t seen the other one, I could have said, that scenery is stunning, using the west... More

Some would said it is such a touristy thing to do in HangZhou. But as a Chinese I have to give this show worth a god 5 stars rate. The show is magnificent and romantic. Just pray that you don't sit near to any "narrator" or "compulsive-flash-photographer".

Thanks to Raphe's recommendation, I enjoy a quite amazing outdoor performance of culture and romance. MildChina gives me a quite cheap ticket discount...

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
