Westlake is a symbolic sight in Hangzhou. Best known for its beautiful sights.
It has the most beautiful gardens and to compliment it, the sunset looks so beautiful. Its beauty has been subject to many paintings and poems. An absolute place to visit if you ever get a chance.
Westlake in Hangzhou is the main attraction. it attracts locals and many come from overseas to see the lake that inspired famous poets, scholars and artists since the 9th century. I was not disappointed when i came all the way from Melbourne – Australia. The time was not enough to explore and enjoy this beautiful Chines landscape.
There is plenty of activates that go on in summer at the lake. i was unfortunate when my camera battery’s went down. it all started when the sun had set. activates started with a small groups of locals dancing and the followed by a water show with light changing colors. a free entertainment that went on for 2 hours and then the time to go home. A local told me to come and visit in winter, the lake looks amazing.
