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.

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.

West lake offers walking paths that are many miles (or km if you prefer) and provide many sights to see along the way. There are pagodas and statues and other visual interests. If you are in the area in Huizhou this is an opportunity not to be missed!
