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.
