With the mountains and stairway to the old city wall on the Northern end and classical architecture of the old tea house and other structures on the eastern side, the West Lake is a refreshing change from the crazy...

A small lake in the middle of Old Town Linhai. Not a great path around it, but, some lovely old structures.
