The Most Magnificent Lake in China (The West Lake, Hangzhou)

25

They said, it's like a 'heaven on earth' in Hangzhou. Why did they said so?

Hangzhou is a city rich of tea, silk and famous with it’s natural beauty and cultural heritages. It’s indeed like in heaven, on earth. And the most attractive attraction in the city are definitely a must-go place in Hangzhou was the West Lake.

There are lots of west or east lakes around the whole China, but the most magnificent one belongs to this west lake at Hangzhou. West Lake is man-made and created after the Chinese love for garden style parks for recreation. It surrounded by mountains on 3 sides, with an area of around 6.5 square kilometers.

There are beautiful flowers, trees and plant surrounded the lake, which make the place a great place for family outing, recreation park, picnic, exercising and etc. Take your time to walk around, it’s indeed a very beautiful moment. A slow cruise along the lake made us slowly enjoy the breeze, on another point of view. The moment and the picture of the beautiful scenic view of the lake are, priceless, to me.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
