The breathtaking beauty of West Lake has inspired many poems and paintings. The legends associated with this lake add to its otherworldly feel.
Divided into five sections by three causeways and a mountain, Westlake is a great place to experience the incredible fusion between humanity and nature. West Lake is a must-visit location during your holiday at one of the apartments Hangzhou has to offer such as Somerset IOC Hangzhou.
One of the best out of “West Lake’s Ten Scenic Sites”, Su Causeway is quite long with willow trees and a variety of other plants fringing each of its sides. Come spring, the whole causeway gets blanketed by the most beautiful peach blossoms and also weeping willow catkins, resulting in an extremely picturesque scene.
