Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you only have a night in Hangzhou, come watch this performance - great light show, great sound system, great choreography, great everything. However if you come during winter, make sure you are well protected as the performance is in the open.

After a satisfying dinner at Nong Tang Li Restaurant nearby, we viewed this amazing water show on the edge of West Lake. The lake was transformed with sets and underwater supports that allowed dozens of actors and soloists to literally walk on the surface of the lake.
With authentic costumes typical of the Song Dynasty, the staging was impressive and well-coordinated, given the number of players. The lighting and water acrobatics were very effective with changing colors of light and interplay of effects.
Our China Discovery Tours provided VIP reserved seating in the center. The simultaneous mass exodus was shoulder-to-shoulder until we reached our mini-van.

This is as said elsewhere impressive to watch as it is performed on water. We thinks some of the performers were wearing wellies.

And it looks the part worth impressive lighting and presentation.

But..... we also saw the Yangshuo show a few days ago.

This Hangzhou equivalent is not as good. This is more a collection of set pieces that don't tell a tale or hang together. More China's Got Talent on Water.

And the Chinese do talk throughout. Two groups just a few rows behind us appeared to be arguing across the barrier between VIP and ordinary seats. I'd had enough so stood up and shouted "Just shut the f*** up!" at them and that did the trick,

The history of Hangzhou, from its mythical beginnings, through the Southern Song Dynasty, to its prosperous present, is told though light, music and dance, with the West Lake itself as the stage. The Dance of the Swans is a highlight.

The show was spectacular! Amazing lights, beautiful dances and music. It was raining when I went, I bummed out at first but in fact it's even more magical. Be sure to get the VIP seats to have a good view of the show. My only downside is they should've closed the gates 15 minutes before the show starts. There were groups that got in late, blocking the view, talking so loud with their flashes on because it's already quite difficult to find seats with the lights on let alone in the dark.

Excellent show! Dancers, musicians, performers on a couple inches of water with an amazing light show.

It's almost exactly an hour long.

They go rain or shine, so if it's raining, dress appropriately. Even in the warmer months, bring layers, because it could get chilly at night.

We got VIP seats, which guarantees front and center, but because the stage is so wide, I don't think it really matters.

This performance is meant to wow the World leaders when they met up few years ago in Hangzhou. Enough set on the expectation of the standards of display.
There are hundred of professional performers in this 1 hour show. Recommend to get a VIP ticket which will give you a good view of the performance and a closer look at some of the singers.
All performances are in mandarin with subtitle in the large led billboards. Expect to see big colorful backdrop of West Lake while the dancers performed.

This show is truly spectacular and was a highlight of my trip. It was so unique as well, as I have never seen a show truly performed on water.

The West Lake Impression Show is a not-to-be-missed activity if you're in Hangzhou. We didn't know what to expect when we got the tickets online. It's definitely worth watching it live in the cool breeze, and with surreal reflections of the lights on the water surface as the many dancers dance in perfect formation. A colorful and entertaining 45 minutes show.
It was full house when we were there on a Sunday night. If you're a traveler, just to ensure getting a seat, it is advisable to get tickets early online.

The West Lake Impressions show is magnificent and worth every penny. There are two shows a day and I went for the second one because the earlier show was sold out. The VIP seats provide the best views. Arrive early to locate the ticket booth if you have to collect your ticket. You can then have dinner there.

I won’t say too much about the show as all has been said, except that you won’t regret it. You don’t need to understand any Chinese to be mesmerized.

Do note that if you go for the second show at 9:15pm, there are no buses running back to civilization (they end at 9:30pm) and you’ll need a cab or if you have a chinese sim card in your phone, you can book didi. If you want to get a cab, do rush out to the taxi stand immediately after the show and ask drivers if they are free. A green light doesn’t mean they’re available.

Enjoy!
