This is yet another beautiful spot in West Lake. Sunsets here are absolutely stunning, especially if there's no wind. The reflection of the orange sun in the lake's tranquil water is amazing.

Although we could not see the moon at the time of our visits but the reflection of pavilions on the calm lake was photogenic and enjoyable. The views at daytime were completely different and you could find people... More

Make sure you take a look when you pass Bai Causeway. Here you can view West Lake from different angle and point of view. Love it!

It’s not worth it. If you listen to the reviews and locals, they say it’s best to see at night. How could we get there at night when the boats finish around 6. There are private boats for hire but they won’t stop. If you know of a way to get there it might be great but is it really... More
