The West Lake (Chinese: 西湖, Xī Hú) is a lake in Hangzhou. Hangzhou, one of my favorite cities in China. It is the capital of the Zhejiang province in eastern China. There are various temples, pagodas and gardens around the lake. Around the year, all kinds of beautiful flowers and plants are growing in the lake. For example, lotus, my favorite flower grows there. So beautiful! When you walk by the lake you can find places, called the lotus pond and lotus lane. Here, you can see the lake at dusk. A boat slips on the along lake. What a wonderful and peaceful atmosphere. Hangzhou, China – 2011
