The West Lake is a stunning way to spend a few hours, or more if the weather allows it, relaxing at various scenic spots or maybe on a boat to the island! There's several food, snack, ice cream points and the lake is easily accessible at any point around it, no entry fees or tickets. Just turn up, walk around the whole thing or jump on a battery car. Take an umbrella for the rain or sun and mosquito spray will be helpful too. Very photogenic and the Pagoda is good value with beautiful views from the top.
A beautiful lake located in Hangzhou, near Fengqi Rd. We spent the evening walking around the lake. The water was so calming. There are boats which take out out onto the lake for a fee. Locals dancing near the lake. Lots of small vendors to buy street food and something to drink. There are huge shopping malls nearby to take a walk in. A lot to do around the West Lake area! Very popular place amongst locals and foreigners in Hangzhou! You can get some great shots during golden hour, and some locals even dress in traditional wear! This is a must see! #urbanexplorer #hangzhou #adventure #chinaphotography #chinatrips #westlake #goldenhour
Who have thought there are these beautiful ranges of hills near the busy city of Hangzhou? Get away from the city and enjoy some staycation time nearby the West Lake scenic spot areas. There are numerous beautiful hotels with tub and jaccuzi! One important thing not to miss also is there are LOTS of beautiful restaurants and coffee and cake shop around, though the price can be more expensive than in the city because they specifically target tourists in this area. But it’s definitely worth the view and relaxation. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own transportation, because there are frequent buses running to this part of West Lake, which makes it very convenient for everyone!
Just a quick train ride away from the Chinese city Shanghai you will find Hangzhou and its beautiful West Lake!
West Lake is associated with Hangzhou beauty. It is a beautiful scenery belt. The famous “10 Scenes of West Lake” surround the lake. Walk along the Sudi and Baidi causeway, or row yourself to the "Three Pools Mirror Moon" located at the middle of the lake. It is a spot where you can enjoy a complete view of the West Lake on your boat and feel the gentle ambience of Hangzhou. You can also rent a bicycle to ride around the lake and enjoy the freedom of stopping wherever you want for a photo.
