This is a very beautiful place close to the lake. You can visit the pagoda and see the wonderful scenario from the top.

Though reconstructed, the Leifeng Pagoda remains a majestic form in the Xihu District. Take in the historical displays and then head upwards to the top, either by stairs or by taking the elevator, for a panoramic view of the West Lake!

This is a modern, purpose built pagoda, that stands on the site of where one originally was built. You can see the ruins of the old foundations on the first floor. It's a steep RMB40 to visit and all you're really getting for that are...More

On my first day at West Lake, I could see this lone standing tower from a distance. It is certainly the backdrop of many postcards and Chinese landscape paintings. So I decided to visit the tower and get a closer look the following day. Prior...More
