Additional Information

Introduction

The Slender West Lake is a scenic lake and national park in Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province. You can enjoy the natural scenery along the river or enter pavilions to sample the poetry and calligraphy of ancient literati. You can also sit on a boat and experience the ride from the perspective of Emperor Qianlong. The Lake still has many famous gardens. 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.

Helpful Information

1. There are many scammers loitering just outside the scenic area. You have to be careful not to be deceived into joining their tour groups. 2. The Slender West Lake scenic area is huge and it is rather tiring to tour the whole place by walking and it is advisable that you tour either by boat or electric car. 3. April/May is the best time to visit because it is when the greenery returns to the area and September/October is Mooncake festival and is the best time for Moon gazing and for the many cultural activities held here.4.Daming Temple (Ming Dynasty) and Sogjiacheng relic park are not far from the Slender West Lake. We will recommend that you pay these places a visit after your lake tour.
