Walk the network of paths around the lake or bring a picnic to enjoy on its banks.

  • 春節假期去的,人非常非常多,人山人海啊!不過景色還是很美的,故地重游,很多回憶,人少一點就更好啦!秩序還是很好的,冬天好冷啊 
  • If you go during the day should go. Blue sky goes to the Lake, very nice. Also to take pictures in grey above and below when it was cloudy, so I couldn't clean. Because the night is very nice atmosphere nice evening walk.

  • 八月的杭州真的很熱,每日平均三十五度以上。在戶外不動也會流汗!然而,來到杭州,怎能不去著名的西湖呢?! 西湖在夏天也開滿蓮花,蓮花好大朵好高。沿著湖伴有很多楊柳樹,雖然天氣好熱,但在湖伴行心情真的很舒暢。
