An Afternoon at Hangzhou’s West Lake June 17, 2011

On a cold, windy March afternoon, we decided to take a boat ride on Hangzhou’s famous West Lake.  We had just eaten a massive meal at the excellent Wai Po Jia (review here) and really needed to walk off the food babies, so after disembarking we spent a couple of hours wandering around the outskirts of the lake.

Here are some random photos I took along the way.

The view from the boat

I believe that is Leifeng Pagoda in the distance

This was taken at the boat depot, a little park island

Ditto. Some bridge.

One more photo, which isn’t really related to West Lake, but I’ll throw it in anyway.  After the long walk we were tired and hungry again, so we went for some high tea at the Hyatt.
