Number One: West Lake (Hangzhou)
The shimmering ripples delight the eye on sunny days/The dim hills present a rare view in rainy haze./West Lake compares to xizi the beauty at her best/She is gorgeous richly clothes or plainly dressed. West Lake, the poetic landscape which resembles a giant landscape painting, evokes every Chinese’s vision of paradise. Nestling within rolling hills on three sides and greets the sprawling urban jungle on the other, West Lake lures travelers for its scenery and heritage. Numerous myths, legends and stories originate from here, such as Lady Snake White and Butterfly Lovers.
Time your visit during spring, so you can stroll along the willow-lined Su Causeway and Bai Causeway gracefully, and feast eye on the bustling peach and cherry blossom. These winding causeways connecting a wealth of museums, artifacts and parks will create an illusion of walking above water.
Number Two: Thousand-Island Lake
Known as a lake with one thousand islands, Thousand-Island Lake hailing from suburb Hangzhou is a choice spring outing destination. No matter what kind of camera you possess, it won’t fail you during spring. Avoid those touristy islands and hire a yatch from locals to reach remote ones, where massive peach forests burst out eye-dazzling blossoms. In no time, you can find the photographic lines, palettes and compositions.
