The most interesting thing about the East Lake is the fact that it's man-made. Otherwise it looks just like an ordinary lake in an ordinary Chinese urban park. But in order to really appreciate the way it was carved in the rocks over centuries, you have to take a boat tour, because you can't really see that in detail from afar. And here comes the catch - the very short boat ride (less than 20 minutes) is overpriced and together with the entrance ticket it comes to more than 100RMB a person, a bit too much for a nice, but pretty short experience.
