Great walk. Nice scenery

The lake is located at the center of the city. Both local people and tourists go there. Nice scenery. Very relaxing. The entire area is huge and one can spend half a day there.

This is a great place to go, very relaxing and lots of Chinese culture to absorb. There is great shopping around the area and the food cafes are also great. I also go back to west lake whenever Im in Huizhou

It is really a very wonderful and peaceful lake to walk around in Huizhou. Suggest to have enough time to walk along the lake to enjoy its beauty. I spent here about three hours. It is much more beautiful in summer time because of blossom of lotus flower. Definitely worth to visit.

We were staying near by and enjoyed a pleasant walk around the lake. You can walk across to a tall pagoda which was closed at the time we went but the walk was worth it despite that.

This can easily be a half-day plan, the lake is located in the city center, is kind of weird, you can see few tall buildings around but the overall landscap[e is very good! There are few bridges too so you can follow different paths.

It is a must see place if you go to Huizhou though nothing special. It's a leisure place for local people and could spend some spare time.

The lake is the center of the entire community with restaurants, hotels, shopping and historical sites all surrounding the water. The lake conjures feelings of romance, nostalgia and historical China even with all it's modern day conveniences. Beautiful both day and night.

Much bigger than I had anticipated, could have spent a whole day here, great photo opportunities everywhere. Didn't have time to rent a boat for a ride on the lake.
