It offers beautiful scenery, but the lake itself is so small that taking boat ride is almost not worth it. Nothing really to see except if you go up the mountain... with the pathway not that well maintained .

Is a beautiful lake and lovely for a slow walk to enjoy the scene. I was there in a winter snowy day. Although it was cold, but was lovely.

It was a magical and beautiful experience. Every other photo taken was a postcard worthy shot. The boat tour is a must. A must go when you are in Shaoxing

Those who are even trying to compare to West Lake in Hangzhou are not being at all fair on this place and though yes it does have nominal similarities, that's it. This is about 120 years old, the brainchild of a local Qing lord who...More

Worth a trip, but not a patch on West Lake in Hangzhou, though it's supposed to be one of the three famous lakes of China. Not a particularly difficult or long walk.

Dong Hu was formed after a quarry was filled in with water. The lake itself is quite small compared with other lakes in China. The amazing features are the remaining rock cliffs that are multiple shades of rusts, greens, and browns. Guests can walk through...More

East Lake rocks! The east lake has lots of fresh air and you must go on the boat ride (Β₯250-270). From Shanghai or Beijing? Well... This must be your favourite attraction!πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
