East Lake rocks! The east lake has lots of fresh air and you must go on the boat ride (Β₯250-270). From Shanghai or Beijing? Well... This must be your favourite attraction!πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

East Lake of Shaoxing is very different from the numerous other lakes and ponds we have seen in China due to its unusual history. This is a lake garden which was created when an abandoned quarry slowly filled up with rainwater. It has gradually been...More
