I visited "Xianghu" shortly after arriving in China and I was amazed by the beauty just a short trip away from my apartment. One must take line 1 (red) on the metro south to "Xianghu" then walk north on the main road that the metro exits to and about 15-20 minutes later you will reach the lake. A nice treat... More

We use to do bicycle trips to Xiang lake from Hangzhou. Also is possible to get there by Metro line 1 to terminal station XiangHu. Then by taxi or just walk 1.5km to the lake. I like Xiang lake because is less crowded than West lake. Maybe due to distance from Hangzhou and also it has not such history, temples... More

Not all of the visitors realized that Xiang Lake stands as the sister lake of Hangzhou's West Lake for the reason that Xiang Lake is too far away from the downtown Hangzhou. Anyway, I don't think it's not more popular than West Lake, it's a paradise with less crowded people and you can see a lot of habitats that is... More

It was a great area to visit, but extremely difficult to naviate around without having someone with me to speak the local language. I had to rely on really nice strangers to help me get around. The taxis are no help - pretty much everyone was ordering them using an app/over the phone and they would not pick anyone up.... More

This lake is in Xiaoshan (across the river from Hangzhou proper) and can be reached by bus #327 from Wushan Square. It is truly amazing and peaceful. Very Chinese with the boats and the bridges and it has just been extended by another 1/2. It will take you more than 4 hours to walk around it unless you take the... More

I am a regular visitor of the Xiang Lake (Xiang Hu). I have been living here in Xiaoshan, Hangzhou for over a year now and this lake has particularly captured most of great memories here. Unlike the more popular " West Lake" (Xihu) in downtown Hangzhou, the Xiang Lake offers you a good getaway from the buzzling crowd of West... More
