There are few places more romantic in China than Hangzhou. Located in Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou is one of the country's most prized destinations. Throughout Chinese history, the mystical West Lake has been recounted in numerous poems, stories, and paintings.
Today, the UNESCO World Heritage Sight is a delight for families and individuals looking for a relaxing weekend getaway. Boating and biking around the lake are the best ways to experience the area. Travelers can spend days exploring the many gardens, pagodas, temples, and bridges dotting the shoreline and many small islands of the lake.
As the sun sets, the West Lake comes alive with the Impression West Lake show. Staged entirely on the lake, Impression West Lake is a magnificent light, song, and dance spectacle directed by the famous Zhang Yimou. The show is a delight for both children and adults.
