This island is only accessible by boat which offers in normal and luxury size, not those you need to raft by yourself. After reaching the island you can choose which pier you wanna leave to. It was an interesting island though when I went there...More

This island is a nice little half-hour stroll. Get the "official" ferry from one of the many docks around the island. You'll see the tickets offices. It currently costs RMB 55 per person, and you can do an open-jaw trip - one dock - three...More

This was a very enjoyable hour (I didn't linger for coffee or anything at a cafe, which you could). Just strolled around the island and through it, admiring views of the city or the ponds inside. Note that when you leave, you can select from...More

An island in the middle of the lake, though small offers ample opportunities to take photos with great views on all sides.

An artificial island created on the West Lake, the island is essentially a circle with 4 pools cut into it like 4 slices on a pizza. It's a magical thought that you're standing in the middle of a lake with just water everywhere, and the...More
