This is a good a place as any to watch the lake from. There are some food and drink booths nearby, so you can take a break from your stroll and just admire the lovely lake.

If cycling around west lake, this is a scenic detour not far off the main route, and the views are well worth the extra effort. Be sure to bring plenty of water with you, as we didn't see any vendors during our winter visit.

This is not an attraction it is just a bridge with a good view across part of West Lake. The walk there and back is relaxing just keep to one side or risk being run over by cyclist. If visiting in summer (I visited during a heatwave) take plenty of water. There are plenty of toilets nearby.

Most of the tourists walk along the main road along the southern part of the island where there a number of restaurants and the Zhejiang museum. The best walk is along the upper walking track that runsthrough the middel of the island to the north of the road. The track was uncrowded, scenic and relaxing.

nothing to do here but to revital my spirit and relax my mind.. i dare to say this is an awesome place to just have a walk or cycling. try not to visit during public holiday coz the place will become terrible crowded with thousand head and mumbing sound.. visit during non-peak season, you will sure to have an unforgettable...

We stopped by in early morning, very nice view. Except the morning exercisers are very loud - they are practicing songs with very loud microphone.

I love this place, here buried my childhood, but for a foreigner, may be not that impressive...compared with others. I particularly love the comfortable grass land...where I sleep my afternoon over sometimes...>_<
