My biggest mistake when I planned my Xixi Wetland visit is the timing --- I visited Xixi at 11am - 3pm in summer! There wasn't anyone, I hardly see anyone. To avoid the heat, I tried to walk into small dirt lanes, which are shaded from trees. It was nice time to walk around the park, especially if you love... More

This place is more about nature and relaxing than sight seeing , but it is nice . It is a wetland in really good shape (very clean and organized ) inside u can find shops and u can see how they lived there in old times (small "museum"). While ur in the boat , u can spot birds and even... More

If you are looking for a piece of countryside charm in urban Hangzhou, Xixi Wetland Park does the trick. Xixi is very big. It can be explored on foot or by boat. Spare half a day to sample its rustic water town lifestyle, or a whole day, at a leisure space, to enjoy all hidden gems. For museum fans, it... More

My recommendation is quite simple. Do not visit this place. They charge 80 yuan for entrance and 60 yuan for boat. But actually the view is not even as good as many other free scenic spots, include MaoJiaPu, SanTaiMengJi, etc. And it is quite boring, sitting in the boat and looking these ordinary views. Inside, just many tourist shops. Boring.... More

As always, many smiling families spending Sundays here. Once a year it is Dragon Boat Festival, go there, see it and feel the atmosphere.

Best place in hangzhou to go and visit if you want to get away from crowded lake and scenic venues. At the entrance there is a tram which runs as well (paid services) and can take you around. i decided to take a walk and enjoy the wetlands. Winters can be the best time to visit as its gets misty...

If you are one who is keen on getting away from the usual tourist attractions for the western eye, visit this place. It is frequented by the locals.You can take a boat ride along the canals, see some old chinese houses and if you are lucky experience the playing of music outdoor with traditional chinese instruments.

I first visited the park during the off-season and while I really enjoyed exploring the wetlands, many of the shops and cafes in the area were closed. Going back during the summer it was almost like a different place and you could cruise around on the boats and see all the attractions easily. The advantage to the winter visit was... More

Enormous disapointment. I actually do not undertand the comments on Trip Advisor or maybe after a few years in busy cities, people have forgotten what nature really is. The park is indeed a wetland but it is rather small and just impossible to get away from the crowd. What really anoid me is that most of the people do not... More
