Enjoyed walking along the causeway from the north on our way to visit the Zhejiang Provincial Museum. Not as famous -- or as crowded -- as the Su Causeway and definitely worth a stroll.

On the Bai Causeway in the north of the West Lake you can stroll around and do a lot of things, incl. boat renting (20rmb/30min), observing people. Nearby, there are also nice restaurants.

The causeway is another lovey space for walking, sitting and taking in the scenery or sunbathing. There are small stalls along the way to pay for a boat trip across the lake in the ancient styled boats. People also ride their bicycles and do photo shoots. The trees are beautiful and it well manicured and clean.

Expect this causeway to be very busy on public holidays Pretty with its half moon bridges & within walking distance of the city leads to picturesque Solitary Hill

I have been here a few times it is always very busy, even on an off peak rainy day. Nice views but not the best in the area. Worth a walk if it is your first time as it is very famous.

We have visited West Lake in April this year and walked from Broken Bridge of Bai Causeway all the way to Golden Ribbon Bridge at the other side of Solitary Hill just to experience why the pathway was so famous not only in Hangzhou but also throughout China as a whole. After the walk, we confirmed that it was so... More

It's very nice to take a stroll in this long pathway. You can ride a bike, but I suggest just take a walk, so you can enjoy the beautiful sceneries along the pathway. Make sure to check the weather forecast before :)

One of the longer paths that cuts across part of Western Lake (Xi Hu). A few attractions to see from the middle to the end. A bike is definitely helpful in getting across.

Bai Causeway is one of three man-made causeways that connect different parts of Hangzhou's West Lake and divide it into three parts. It runs from the northernmost shore of the lake across to Solitary Island, which is full of historic sites, museums, and restaurants. Bai Causeway is named after a Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) poet, Bai Juyi, who was governor... More
