What to expect
Pick you up at your hotel in Hangzhou at around 9am to begin your one day walking tour of West Lake. The West Lake is a freshwater lake and divided by the Bai Causeway, Su Causeway and Yánggōng Causeway and dotted with numerous temples, pagodas, gardens, and man-made islands. We will start our one day walking tour from Broken Bridge which is a very famous spot in West Lake Scenic Area. Walk across the bridge and step onto the Bai Causeway. The Bai Causeway is a 0.62 mile long embankment with plum trees and weeping willows planted on both sides, which makes it especially nice scenery in the spring. This causeway travels northward and starts at the "broken bridge", traveling through the "golden ribbon bridge" and ends at the "autumn moon on a calm lake" to make it a very interesting journey.  Continue our walking, we will get to Quyuan Park (Crooked Courtyard). The park boasts the biggest natural water supply into the West Lake and a wide range of lotus plants of various species.While in furious blossom, the lotus flowers show off reds, golds and whites in different figures and forms. Broad leaves spread leisurely on the limpid lake waters and low bridges zigzag among flowers. Such a view makes visitors forget themselves. The crooked courtyard links with the Yuehu Lake by Su Causeway on the east and leads to Guos' Estate on the south. We will continue walking south to the Su Causeway. There are six arched stone bridges spanning the lake: Ripples Reflection Bridge, Locking Waves Bridge, Viewing Hill Bridge, Suppressing Dike Bridge, Eastern Lakeside Bridge, and Crossing Rainbow Bridge. Enjoying a well-known reputation of the main scene of the Ten Scenes in West Lake, Spring Dawn at Su Causeway is a must-see for visitors to explore the grace of West Lake and enjoy the romantic Hangzhou travel. Adjacent to Su Causeway is the Flower Harbor (Huagang) Park which has a pool of beautiful colored fish. The best time to visit is late spring to early summer when the park is full of blossoms. "Viewing Fish at Flower Harbor" is also one of the top ten West Lake Scenes. Leifeng Pagoda, on the Evening Glow Hill is also situated on the southern shore of the West Lake. Regarded as one of the top ten West Lake Scenes, "Leifeng Pagoda in Evening Glow"refers to the beautiful scene of the pagoda bathed in the evening glow at sunset. Walking through the Long Bridge, our west lake walking tour will end at a lakeside park - "Orioles Singing in the Willows" which is also one of top ten West Lake Scenes. With its luxuriant trees along the winding bank, the park attracts birds flapping by. Return to your hotel after the tour.

Fantastic Westlake day tours
Oct 2019 • Couples
We had our fantastic day tours in Westlake in Hangzhou with our tour guide, her name is Nancy (Xiao Fung) . She is a very nice person, speak well English, smile, patient, knows well Hangzhou so that she gives us more information about the city, as well as the history of where we visit. The tours is flexible, we chose 6 places to visit: Riding boat around the Westlake, Kol Golden fish, Guo garden, Lingyi Temple, Silk museum and Qinghefang Old street. All are interesting to see. Lingyi temple is a must see place with amazing Buddha status on natural stone.
We are happy with the tours and would recommend China Private Tours - Day tours to everyone visits Hangzhou
