A very nice place to walk and enjoy the very picturesque lake. Many pavilions and bridges to explore not forgetting the beautifully manicured parks. Avoid weekends if possible, it can be overcrowding

Slender West Lake is very small compared to West Lake. But it's beautiful. It's surrounded by colorful landscape. It's so peaceful.

Comparing to the Westlake in Hangzhou, this is so much lesser crowds, as such there are locations that you may enjoy some peaceful and appreciate serene moments. Love the bonsai museum. Strangely there are many cats in the park, something I cannot understand.
