Part of the West Lake and the Botanical gardens. We visited beginning of August and the weather was suitable. Nice shooting location and a path just below the lake surface making the people appear walking on the water. Fun to be around for 2-3 hours.

This is a beautiful place to visit on your visit of West Lake. It can get crowded, and someone is always selling some infernal noisemaker to children, but it is a beautiful place. Must visit when at West Lake/ Xihu.
