The West Lake in daylight looks gorgeous, yet in rainy days it seems even better. However, its unparalleled grace only comes at night. If you are thirsty for a boat tour over the nighttime lake in the breeze, the Song-style pleasure cruise must be the choice.

The 2022 West Lake “Guochao Songfeng” Night Tour was made public recently. According to the staff of Hangzhou Westlake Pleasure Boat Co., Ltd., the departure site of the tour is set at the Fifth Park pier. You have two choices for the boat tour, either on Quanrao or Baoshi.

“The boats are both furnished in the antique Song style. You will be wrapped in the good smell of West Lake Longjing, the ethereal music from Sizhu, and the night of the West Lake bathed in the moonlight and the manmade lightings around. You will feel like living back to the Southern Song as a scholar of ancient times.”

This will be such an amazing tour with the fragrance unique to early summer night. Just imagine a refreshing on-deck route along the Bai Causeway, the Broken Bridge, Autumn Moon over the Calm Lake, Mid-lake Pavilion, Ruan Gong Islet , Three Pools Mirroring the Moon, Leifeng Tower and other famous West Lake attractions, exposing yourself to natural scenes against the lightings. Isn’t it a pleasant experience?

You should pay just 90 yuan a person (50% off for children 1.2-1.5 meters tall, together with a souvenir and a Song-style art performance) for the boat tour. The boat sets off from the Fifth Park pier, passes through the Bai Causeway, Autumn Moon over the Calm Lake, Su Causeway, Three Pools Mirroring the Moon, Orioles Singing in the Willows, and the Lakeside Park before heading back to its place of departure. The whole experience takes around 50 minutes. Touring is available from 18:30 to 21:30 (subject to the pier’s notice).
