East Lake of Shaoxing, Shaoxing

(4.2/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Rent an aquatic taxi at East Lake of Shaoxing and enjoy the ride between its colorful cliffs. Rocks of different shades of rust, green, and brown rise high above the crescent-shaped lake. Historically used as a quarry, the body of water remains from this hollowed-out landscape. Hills, grottoes, and pavilions adorn the scenery, and you can walk across the middle of the lake on delicate stone bridges. Make sure to bring your own food, as there are no vendors on site.

  • 景色殊勝,老少咸宜。湖面狹長,繞山屏障一側,涯涘依山延展。有騎湖之橋二三架,橫越湖面。繞山更舖以塊石,山道逶迤,半山以上有茶花,下山之徑過竹林,都怡然清靜之幽境。下至半山,展目可望見越城風光,下山後可以乘免費的擺渡舟,過湖登岸,聽戲飲酒,儁永舒懷。  more »
