    Hefang Street
    Stop: 4 hours
    Firstly, visit Hefang Historical Street. With brilliant culture and long history, it is regarded as a typical symbol of ancient Hangzhou. It represents the old story and showcases the folk culture of Hangzhou, which is an ideal place for shopping, to buy souvenirs, taste local snacks as well as savor the beautiful artefacts. After that, you will enjoy one of famous natural shows in China, the “Impression West Lake Show”. This show lasts around 1 hour, which was directed by Zhangyimou, Fanyue and Wangchaoge. Filmmaker Zhang is the mastermind of many renowned stage spectacles, including the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The show is praised “A scene in heaven and a dream on earth”. It is definitely a magnificent show with a tremendous music, culture and history set on the stunning backdrop of West Lake. With the colorful light bright during the show, dancing on the surface of the lake appears particularly prominent.

The best live show in the world (possibly as i haven't seen every live show in the world)
Jun 2019 • Solo
Where to start. . . It is the most amazing show that I have ever seen. I personally think that the one thing that sets it apart is the stage used. I don't think I will see a stage as big or as beautiful again in my lifetime. Music has an international language all of its own so there is no problem with not being able to speak or understand the language. The different acts were introduced in Chinese and English. The lighting was spot on. It truly was a highlight of my 17days in China. If you are ever in Hangzhou this, in my opinion, is a must do activity.

Wow!!! Stunning drama on water
Mar 2018 • Couples
Our cruise on West Lake itself was in the afternoon, and it was a beautiful day; we enjoy boat trips, and it was very pleasant, also seeing some of the statues that appear on the backside of Chinese currency.

However, the real jewel of West Lake is the West Lake Show after dark. The ingenuity to construct boardwalks under the surface of the water, and have the actors "walk on water" while doing dances to orchestral music was phenomenal!!! The props used throughout the performance complemented and supplemented the human component of the show beautiful; the varying light show on the surrounding trees on the shoreline contributed stunning backdrop to the drama being played out. A must-do if you are in Hangzhou.

Apr 2018 • Couples
At night you can go to see the spectacular performance of the Chinese director Zhang Yimou, Impression West Lake. The show takes place every evening (if weather allows), with the first starting at 19:15 and the second starting at 21:45. The show is about an hour and a half long. The tickets for the show can be purchased through your hotel or in advance through the following website. The show takes place entirely on the lake itself and if you wonder how it is possible, I will tell you that it was built 3 centimeters below the water line. The show combines lights of different colors, exciting music, hypnotic dancing and an outstanding game. The plot is based on a common legend in Hangzhou, which we, the visitors from the West, do not really know, but it does not detract from the pleasure of watching the show. The director managed to use the lake and the surrounding objects in a sophisticated and admirable way, creating a stunning and extraordinary show, in which thousands of talented actors take part. This is the most popular show in the city, so tickets should be purchased soon. And my tip, for those who come to Hangzhou during the winter season and want to watch the show: Do not forget to bring something warm to wear with you, as the weather is freezing during the show and it will only make you less fun.

Fantastic night show in Hangzhou
Mar 2018 • Couples
Enduring memories of Hangzhou show is the updated version of Impression West Lake show after G20 Summit in 2016. We have viewed the show by late March this year and opined that this should be a "must" for visitors, local or overseas. Both the light and sound performances were outstanding. All the audience applauded to the dancers while performing under the romantic atmosphere. Highly recommended to others while visiting Hangzhou.
