The scenery are spectacular and serenity, and vegetation and plants are super manicure. The Lake of course are grand, you can take boat tour if you have time or you can take trolley-car around the Lake for small fee. Nightly fountain water show in front of Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Being invited to watch the show in November it was held at a lagoon cornered around the famous Westlake. The show director is also a world renowned movie director but his production in Impression Westlake is just amazing. The weather is very blessed in the evening making the dancing, music and visual effects all came out perfectly. Our show has... More

Worth every cent of the ticket price. Worth queuing to get in. It rained and we were handed ponchos. Zhang Yimou is really great in directing. As the crowd dispersed, it was almost impossible to get a taxi. We had to use a black market car but I was ok at negotiating so price was reasonable. Problem should be less... More

It's not the show that was "Terrible" (see my rsting above), it was just terrible that it has been closed for several weeks leading up to the G20 Summit. Disappointed not to have seen it.

The view is magnificent. Very typical. It should not be missed. With a sunny weather go to the Island and walk around, eat tea ice creams and enjoy the views. Note that the place is often crowded. Don't be surprised by it.

The spectacle is a typical light and sound show, created around a romantic story and set in natural surroundings right on the lake. It is a beautiful / poetic show. We just loved it. The set is located along the shore next to souvenir boutiques /cafes. For Starbucks lovers there is one not far away. The seats are either under... More

A boat ride is essential to really step back in time and reveal the past days of the Dynasty.Enjoy a walk back along the causeway and enter into the gardens.
