Xixi Wetland Park, Hangzhou

3.8
#1 of 19 in Nature in Hangzhou
Immerse yourself in lush green vegetation at Xixi Wetland Park, some 11.5 sq km (4.4 sq mi) of west Hangzhou's weeded waterways with great cultural heritage. Dating back to the Han period, this 1,800-year-old cultivated wetland area with ponds, lakes, and swamps represents China's first national wetland park. A museum dedicated to traditional life in the wetlands offers artifacts documenting lives of fishermen and farmers, while well-preserved residences and dwellings bring history and tradition to life. Take a boat and explore this unique ecosystem with a guide, and round out your visit by ordering a homemade meal served on the docks. If you're lucky, you may spy white egrets, wild geese, or kingfishers. Plan your Xixi Wetland Park visit and explore what else you can see and do in Hangzhou using our Hangzhou travel route planner.

  • This spacious park seems like you are out in the country when you are really surrounded by Hangzhou. It is a good place for bird watching. I am glad I have seen the place, but I do not expect ever to ...  more »
  • The reason for the time from the East Gate came in, only walked a small paragraph, it is worth spending a day to play slowly ~ afternoon hours from the East gate come in is a good choice, like last August at Regents Park, you can meet the beautiful sunset, it is really beautiful! Tickets a bit expensive, the public comments on a special, but need to advance two hours, can be a cheap 20%. We went to the day, the park engaged in activities, the girls dressed in Chinese clothes free admission. It is expected that one day there will be a Chinese version like the girls wearing kimonos in Japan.

  • You are not often alone anywhere in China, especially public places, but this was an exception. Beautiful, peaceful, quiet. Worth the stop.  more »
