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

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.
