West Lake
The West Lake is a must for a Hangzhou day tour. It is renowned for not only beautiful lakes and mountains, but also a lot of historical sites. Looking like a pearl surrounded by hills from three directions, the West Lake has totally unique and enchanting scenery in four seasons - weeping willows sprouting and peach trees blooming along the causeways in spring; lotus leaves and flowers swaying in the ponds in summer; setting sun reflected on the lake in autumn; and the red plum blossoms flickered on white snow in winter. You will enjoy the beauty of the West Lake whenever you reach there. Taking a West Lake tour by cruise boat, you can watch the famous Bai Causeway, the Su Causeway as well as Leifeng Pagoda from a distinctive perspective.
West Lake is famous for both the stunning sceneries and fascinating legend
