Slender West Lake is very small compared to West Lake. But it's beautiful. It's surrounded by colorful landscape. It's so peaceful.

Comparing to the Westlake in Hangzhou, this is so much lesser crowds, as such there are locations that you may enjoy some peaceful and appreciate serene moments. Love the bonsai museum. Strangely there are many cats in the park, something I cannot understand.

The gardens around the lake are extensive and lovely. There is a Disney-like historical review of Yangzhou which is definitely worth going to.

Went there in the morning before the open time, so not that crowded, and took many nice pictures. But the admission fee is too expensive.
