Xixi Wetland Park, Hangzhou
(3.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Xixi Wetland Park and get the most from your holiday in Hangzhou, create itinerary details personal to you using our Hangzhou vacation trip planner.

  • This is a good place but if you are pressed on time you could avoid this place. This is located bit outside city. There are parks and you can take boat ride to around to see different parts. 
  • Unique to China from the center of the city in a car ripped whole Creek in 20-30 minutes, a vast, vast park. Scene from the movie "one non-Makoto" photography stage. It melts my heart sasakure立tta in Chinese life and rolling around in the boat.

  • On a beautiful Saturday in early November, we visited the Xixi wetlands. Already, the Museum was very nicely designed and showed the importance of various natural spaces on our world in a very vivid way. We liked it there very well despite the incredibly many people who were travelling on the paths of the park that day. Keep themselves somewhat, one can encounter also paths along the water, where hardly anyone is. Otherwise, there are nice shops and good restaurants, that invite to visit.
