Tourist guide services around
The West Lake of
Hangzhou is regarded as the most beautiful one of all lakes
in China. Honored by Marco Polo, the Italian tourist, as
"the most beautiful and noble city in the world", Hangzhou
has enjoyed a worldwide reputation for the feminity of its
West Lake, the vastness of the Qiantang River and the
tenderness of the Xixi Swamp.
Located in the south of the Yangtze River Delta, on the
western tip of the Hangzhou Bay, on the lower reaches of the
Qiantang River and at the southern end of the Beijing -
Hangzhou Canal, Hangzhou is a key city in the Yangtze River
Delta and a transportation hub in the southeast of China.
People usually would like to regard Hangzhou's West Lake and
Geneva's Leman Lake as the two shining pearls of the east
and west in the world, which shows the West Lake's pivotal
role in Hangzhou's tourism industry.
