This was the first stop on our boat ride on Xihu. It's a wonderful little islet and we spent well over an hour there. The architecture and greenery are really lovely. There were plenty of snacks too. Highly recommended.

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
