Very traditional Chinese garden park. Truly beautiful inside out. Best time to see is in the early morning, with fresh air and quiet environment.

This area is free to visit and provides multiple stunning views of the West Lake. It has a whole lot of history with plenty to see and do. Be sure to take a camera as there are many photo opportunities.

This mountain or hill, is a part of the West Lake. On the way to the hill, you will pass a very beautiful park, called 孤山公园 (Gu Shan Park). The view is very nice. Perfect for strolling :)
