Not exceptional. You can see the stone where the emperor wrote Chinese characters. Since it's at the entrance of the Su Causeway south entrance and the boats arriving/departures just in front, it's so busy and noisy. We just enter less than 5 minutes and went out. It's free

U can take dragon boat RMB 55 and choose to get down here. Try not to go during rainy day (weekend)... though the rain can create misty lake effect.. .. not much fish to see.... clouded with plenty of group tours.. as west lake is free of charge, that is where tourist agents can earn. u can come by yr...

An interesting place not just because of its scenery, but because of its many significance, 1. There is a mini Jiang Zi Ya, called Jiang Xiao Ya, grandson of the famed fisherman who doesn't use any hook on his fishing rod. He symbolises abundance of opportunity. 2. The carpe in this lake is really good at jumping. There is a... More

Park area, famous one, located pretty close of city. Well, it might take a while to get there due to heavy traffic. Dragon boats do trips to lake and also smaller boats available. Just close to this there is also local shopping "street" that is really local and original.

I was not very impressed with the place especially after visiting a number of attractions in Hangzhou. It is still a good attraction. Perhaps the crowd had weigh in on my view. It is one of the several places you can get onto a boat/ferry to enjoy lake. The lotus that was to be the attraction did not stand out.... More

We started our visit to West Lake by taking in the view from the Leifing Pagoda. The Fish Garden is only a 15 minute walk away around the bottom of the lake. The entrance is off the causeway and the gardens are free. The gardens are pleasant with a number of ponds full of Koi carp. Outside the entrance there... More

OK, I lived in Japan for many years and know the Koi (Carp) quite well. It is always fun to see the beautiful colors of the fish and to watch them eat from your hands. We went on the weekend and although there were many fish, there was so many people around all trying to get the fish to eat.... More
