Day5 - Nanjing/Hangzhou Trip 2017 - West Lake, Hangzhou
After breakfast, we decided to visit the famous west lake of Hangzhou. The weather was not helping, it was getting colder, very misty and raining. Lucky it wasn't raining very heavy but was so cold. I did not expect the weather was that cold as if it was winter and it was Spring time in April but felt like winter. West Lake was very near our hotel, took us less than 10 minutes to walk to West Lake. Just walked along Pinghai Road towards West Lake and can reached there in no time. It was so misty that we cant see the opposite end of the lake. Being two old folks, we were quite afraid to take the boats to tour the lake so decided to abandon the boat ride but we did go for the boat ride on our last day in Hangzhou(post about it later). We decided to take the larger boat for the tour of west lake on our last day in Hangzhou but not today. Very relaxing to just walk around the lake and the lake was not small, did not cover the whole lake but had a wonderful time admiring and taking photos with the scenery and all the flowers in the park. It was spring time, lots of flowers blooming including the Cherry Blossom but they dont looked so beautiful cause of the rain.
