Impressions on West Lake show Nov 22, 2011
Impressions on West Lake is done entirely on the water. That is to say the performers seem to walk on the water. Just when the spectacle of the water walking seems to wear off the performance adds additional elements to keep it fresh and wondering what is next. Though others complain about the synchronization of the music and dance or the lack of understanding of the story the best way to enjoy the show is to simply sit back and absorb it for it's visual uniqueness. Tourist trap? Perhaps but I doubt that it will disappoint for an evenings entertainment.

Just a lake May 18, 2011
I was quite honestly rather dissapointed with this place. Its always crowded, and when I went it was CROWDED!

The place is really just a lake, like any other. Sure, it has historical significance for the Chinese history, but that aside, theres not much to it.

Advise: never go in weekends with a public holiday. You'll will simply not be able to enjoy the place. It will be so overcrowded that you cannot even circle the lake.

Rent a boat, and get away from the crowd.

Try other places around Shanghai instead. See my other Shanghai reviews for more recommended places to experience Chinese culture in the area.

Un paseo por el Lago Oeste no deja indiferente a nadie. Nada mas que por sus nombres tan sugerente ya vale la pena verlo, son 60 kilómetros cuadrados en total, de los cuales 5,68

corresponden al área acuática propiamente. Enmarcados

en este espacio se encuentran 40 puntos pintorescos y 30 sitios

históricos. El lago queda partido en tres sectores por los

pasos Su y Bai: el lago exterior, el interior y el trasero. Dentro

del embalse hay cuatro islotes: la Colina Solitaria, la Pequeña

Yingzhou, el Pabellón Central del Lago y el Montículo

Ruangong. Entre las colinas frondosas y edificios con jardines que

rodean al lago, se pueden contemplar los denominados Diez Puntos

Famosos de Interés, a saber, el Manantial en el Paso Su,

la Luna de Otoño sobre el Lago en Calma, el Observatorio

de los Peces en el Parque Huanggang, el Sitio para Escuchar el Canto

de las Oropéndolas entre los Sauces, los Dos Picos que Alcanzan

las Nubes, los Tres Estanques que Reflejan la Luna, el Sol Poniente

sobre la Pagoda Leifeng, la Vista de la Campana Crepuscular desde

el Templo Jingci, el Loto Danzante en el Patio Profundo y la Nieve

que se Derrite sobre el Puente Roto. ¿Queda alguna duda sobre si visitarlo o no?
