Q: best way to see the west lake in Hangzhou?

The west lake is big and I don’t have loads of time, what’s a good way to see the most of it in one go?

Travel back in time to before it was ruined. If not possible, save your time and money for something less underwhelming.

a good way to see the whole lake is to take a cruise, there are really big boats with music and tea or there are small ones you can rent and paddle yourself.
unspoiled nature you want, this park is where you’ll get it.

Underwhelming is right.  I lived around 9 months in HZ, never seen why people trip-out on West Lake so much.  It's a regular lake.  Seems to me if you wanna see lakes you should head up north,,, Western BC, Yukon, Alaska,  oh well, any nature is better than no nature (SZ), but West Lake just doesn't have it going on,,, maybe the far north/ northeast reaches that haven't been over-developed yet.  I did like wandering around the street market there on the west side though.

My 2 cents...

 

HZ and Westlake actually isn't too bad (in comparison with other places)... but it doesn't deserve the hype it gets (certainly now).

 

And, the hype has made it worse, due to the nongs and zombies thronging the place.

 

Wandering around the lake at night - after most have gone home - is a nice experience... but certainly no better than most other lakes in cities (except the possible quiet you can sometimes get, depending on which bit you're in).

 

The hills and fields 10 mins away are also nice (again, sans zombies).

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
