  • It is said that the slender West Lake was only a river in Yangzhou, because Kangxi, Qianlong two Emperor South Patrol to this point, appreciated the scenery here, renamed the Slender West Lake, the river and landscape organically connected together, and then the world became famous. Many attractions in the park, flowers and trees in order, small bridges, rockery, Pavilion Building, Long Causeway, lake patchwork, color matching complement each other. A rare garden landscape.
