Illuminated West Lake in Hangzhou

Plan your Hangzhou tour? Hangzhou ‘s West Lake dominates the psyche of the locals, even the whole nation of China and the Chinese around the world as well. West Lake epitomes the Chinese classic gardening, now a mix of traditional Chinese landscape and modern urban cityscape.

You cannot afford to miss a trip to West Lake with whatever the modes of travel – strolling, biking or boating. In addition, West Lake shows itself beautifully different with different times a day and different seasons a year.

For me, West Lake is at its best when it is brilliantly lit in the evening on weekends or national holidays. People are intoxicated by the neon-lit boats plying on the lake, the firy pagodas, the illuminated mountains, the starry causeways and dream-like lakeshores.

The musical fountains on the east lakeshore highlight the evening beauty of West Lake, attracting a consistent flow of visitors every evening.
