We have visited this scenic spot three times in April this year and found that it was more impressive at night time. Although we could not see the moon at the time of our visits but the reflection of pavilions on the calm lake was photogenic and enjoyable. The views at daytime were completely different and you could find people... More

Make sure you take a look when you pass Bai Causeway. Here you can view West Lake from different angle and point of view. Love it!

It is referred to whimsically as "Autumn Moon over the Calm Lake", because Chinese for centuries have loved to come here in the early night and sit and... More

It’s not worth it. If you listen to the reviews and locals, they say it’s best to see at night. How could we get there at night when the boats finish around 6. There are private boats for hire but they won’t stop. If you know of a way to get there it might be great but is it really... More

I live locally and this is one of my favorite places to visit and I run by here almost every Tuesday evening. In English "Autumn Moon Over the Calm" lake is one of the ten famous sites of West Lake, though I don't remember if its one of the ten ancient sites, ten modern sites, etc. Its on the lakefront...
