  • I was in early spring to Hangzhou after the rain to solitary mountain. Lonely Mountain quiet, empty. Standing in the courtyard is not caused by a sense of loneliness, completely without the feeling of Lingshan beauty, perhaps rainy day may be the mood.

  • Very traditional Chinese garden park. Truly beautiful inside out. Best time to see is in the early morning, with fresh air and quiet environment.  more »
  • Around the West Lake scenic area is generally avoided. Because there were just too many. Crowds everywhere. That was because volunteer activities up there early in the morning. Seen from the odd one or two to a full foreign aggression. I hope you up early exclusive beauty ❤
