There are few places more romantic in China than Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. Throughout Chinese history, the mystical West Lake has been recounted in numerous poems, stories, and paintings, and today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Sight attracting families and couples seeking out a relaxing weekend getaway.
Spend your days boating, biking and exploring the many gardens, pagodas, temples, and bridges dotting the shoreline and many small islands of the lake. And as the sun sets, the West Lake comes alive with the Impression West Lake show to give you a truly magical experience in the most beautiful of settings. Staged entirely on the lake, Impression West Lake is a magnificent light, song, and dance spectacle directed by the famous Zhang Yimou.
