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.

A very pretty lake with a great flower garden. Take the relaxing boat ride. Then walk around the lake and explore its many gardens.

If you go there on a national holiday, you have to scroll xi hu at dawn, 6am, otherwise there are so many people, up to50,000, packed on the promenade. If that is the situation encountered, go shopping is an alternate, departments stores are modern and chic. If you bumped into the automated orange juice machine, try it, genuine fresh orange...

I was here in 2009 July, it was a day tour with my local colleagues. All the way along the west lake, you just can't get your eye away from it. We decided to take boat trip since we were there. I couldn't recall the fee. Now I am back again, and it's night time watching the west lake view.... More

The west lake is beatiful, you can go by day and take a boat trip or you can go by night and you can see the water show. A perfect place to take a break.

Recommended to us by fellow travelers, this show did not disappoint. We booked a car to drop us off and pick us up to avoid the crowds and taxi lines mentioned in so many of the reviews. Suggest you hang behind and let the crowds race out of the stands to avoid being caught in the human traffic congestion too.... More
