Hangzhou has several ideal spots for sunset viewing or photo taking. The Hubin Park 湖滨公园 ( Lakeside Park ) is one of the best places for seeing the magnificent sundown over West Lake.  Hubin Park is composed of 6 smaller parks (numbered from No.01 to No.06) along the east shoreline of the lake on the west edge of the city center of Hangzhou.

West Lake is surrounded by the hills on its three sides – North, West and South. Walking along the green belt ( Hubin Park ) at sunset allows you to have a clear view of the sunset over the lake. The No.01 Park of the Lakeside Park on the southeast corner is believed to the most popular spot for sunset view.

If you are a sunset enthusiast, come to the Lakeside Park (Hubin Park) for a pleasant stroll  with an added value of sunset photo taking during your Hangzhou tour.
