He Fang Jie (Qing He Fang)

From what time till what time is He Fang Jie open? We will make a one day trip in Hangzhou and will visit the West lake. Is it better to visit the west lake in the morning/afternoon and He Fang Jie in the evening or the other way around?
Thanks a lot

He Fang Jie is open to the public from the daytime till the midnight presenting visitors all kinds of food. Therefore, you can visit the West Lake first in the morning or in the afternoon. But the scenic spot closes at 17:00. After that, you can go enjoy He Fang Jie.
