We walked on most of the causeway at the West Lakes, this is one of the most picturesque one, you get the views of both side of the lakes. Overlooking at the distance is the city views. No cars can get through except for the electric cars for tourists.

A wonderful place to view and enjoy the pleasures of the West lake. However the crowds can be overwhelming so if you enjoy your personal space or are claustrophobic avoid at all costs. There are a few tourist attractions to visit as you stroll the Causeway the most important being the Chinese Seal Engravers Society.

Took a gondola row boat from Hubin / Musical Fountain across West Lake through to Su Causeway. Very relaxing and peaceful. One can easily forget that they are in the middle of big city Hangzhou. Try the gondola ride atleast once. Su Causeway provides the ideal (scenic, tranquil) distraction for those seeking fitness but don't have the discipline. West Lake... More

It is just on the lake. And it is a most important part of the lake. It is a long way to walk. But in a good day, it is a very nice walk. We walked all the way and it is enjoyable. We have much to see. There are lot of stories happened here, But it is not easy... More

There are jitneys and other ways to get around. I marveled at two men flying kites that looked like a an aerial cock fight. They drew quite a crowd. And I purchased a comb made from a horn by the young woman who sold it to me

One of 2-3 Causeways built across Hangzhou's landmark Westlake centuries ago, the Su Causeway cuts across one side of the lake, connecting 2 opposite shores. Its sides planted with roses, Irises, Peaches and other gorgeous plant life, the causeway is punctuated with 6 picturesque bridges. The sound of birdsong serenades you as you stroll (you might have to strain to... More

Su Causeway was the longest of the three man-made causeway in Xi Hu and it was named after the famous poet Su Dong Bor who had once been the governor of Hangzhou in the past. This causeway was famous for its six bridges along the way and the whole route was calm and peaceful with trees on both sides. You... More

Part of our visit to the area. Beautiful views and walk. Unfortunately visit was marred by the presence of 20,000 other visitors all with the same idea. Would be glorious to stroll when the crowds were not present
