The scenery are spectacular and serenity, and vegetation and plants are super manicure. The Lake of course are grand, you can take boat tour if you have time or you can take trolley-car around the Lake for small fee. Nightly fountain water show in front of Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Being invited to watch the show in November it was held at a lagoon cornered around the famous Westlake. The show director is also a world renowned movie director but his production in Impression Westlake is just amazing. The weather is very blessed in the evening making the dancing, music and visual effects all came out perfectly. Our show has... More

I watched this show last year with some of my customers who came from Canada, Apr ,May, Sep, Oct are the better time to watch this show, summer is a little bit hot and winter is too chilly, if you...

Worth every cent of the ticket price. Worth queuing to get in. It rained and we were handed ponchos. Zhang Yimou is really great in directing. As the crowd dispersed, it was almost impossible to get a taxi. We had to use a black market car but I was ok at negotiating so price was reasonable. Problem should be less... More

It's not the show that was "Terrible" (see my rsting above), it was just terrible that it has been closed for several weeks leading up to the G20 Summit. Disappointed not to have seen it.

Have been coming to Hangzhou for many years and the west lake is always my main reason Unfortunately these days are too hot to walk around and the Hyatt hotel air con is stretched to its limit and still not cool enough

The view is magnificent. Very typical. It should not be missed. With a sunny weather go to the Island and walk around, eat tea ice creams and enjoy the views. Note that the place is often crowded. Don't be surprised by it.

The spectacle is a typical light and sound show, created around a romantic story and set in natural surroundings right on the lake. It is a beautiful / poetic show. We just loved it. The set is located along the shore next to souvenir boutiques /cafes. For Starbucks lovers there is one not far away. The seats are either under... More
