Recommendation by Lemi

West Lake is Hangzhou’s pride and symbol. Lush willow trees, pagoda-topped hills, and man-made islands surround the freshwater lake. Take in the serene atmosphere at any of the Ten Scenes of West Lake, such as Dawn on the Su Causeway in Spring, Curved Yard and Lotus Pool in Summer, and Moon Over the Peaceful Lake in Autumn. These spots give you the greatest views of the landscape! Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011, West Lake has greatly inspired poets and painters throughout Chinese history—the most notable being Song Dynasty poet Su Dongpo when he compared West Lake’s splendor to Xi Zi, one of the four ancient beauties of China.
