First off, we went during national day holiday and it was extremely busy. That said it was a nice place to walk, especially as you got further from the entrance.

Beautiful scenic views all around lake. In winter (Dec) mornings a great view of whole park area, lawn covered with snow dews/crystals glows with sun rays. This lake area well suited if planning for a tradition Chinese background photo shoot. Suitable for all kinds of visitors, we friends enjoyed our team building activity here. Boat ride is recommended.

I actually visited Yangzhou as a means to get further north into China.. I knew nothing about it and had no plans to go.. However, spending a day at the Slender West Lake was a wonderful trip worth doing, and actually turned out to be a highlight in 6 weeks of China for me. It's a beautiful clean park area,... More

I went for a boat tour ride of this beautiful lake and I loved it. The guide explained the story behind this lake in English. The scenery is beautiful with bridges, lotus plants and so on. Go and visit this attraction if you go to Yangzhou.

The Lake is nicely located in the city and you can go by a battery-powered boot. Specially at night with all the different coleured lamps the Lake has a special feeling.

First the lake was easy to get there by riding bikes from the hotel in the centre of town and the delightful stroll through this amazing extensive landscaped serene park took several hours. highlight in Yangzhou.

You will not find a finer, better maintained, cleaner, nor more beautiful park in all of China. There are views that will take an entire day to see plus the wifi works throughout the park

I consider this place is a must-go when staying in Yangzhou during spring time, especially March-April as it is blossom season and you would be amazed by tons of colors presented via flowers around the lake.
