For thousands of years, countless literati wrote poems and drew paintings here, leaving behind many assets and folk tales. They also built many scenic buildings in accordance with local customs.
Slender West Lake is a belt-like landscape connected by the city hawks of Sui, Tang, Five Dynasties, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, and has always maintained an interactive relationship with the Grand Canal.

" In the first year of Qianlong (1736), Wang Yuanmuming, a poet of Qiantang (Hangzhou), came to Yangzhou. After enjoying the beautiful scenery here, he made a comparison with the West Lake of his hometown. He wrote poems and painted pictures of "Chuiyang continually joining the remnants of Wuhu and Yanfang Hongqiao. It is also a pot of gold, so it should be called thin West Lake.

Slender West Lake is divided into 14 major scenic spots, including Wuting Bridge, 24 Bridges, White Pagoda, Lotus Pool, Diaoyutai and so on. The three-character plaque "Slender West Lake" stepping into the eaves of the entrance hall of the South Gate is the handwriting of Sun Longfu, the late calligrapher of Yangzhou.

Thin West Lake has more historic sites and richer architectural layers than the West Lake.
