Xihu - meaning West Lake. Not to confuse with West Lake in Hangzhou :) My mother-in-law brought us here as it's a place she loves to go when she was young. It's a nice and peaceful place in the city. Great for slow walk, morning exercises, running and boating. We rented a electric boat and sailed around to enjoy the... More

The park retains a calm atmosphere, and seems rather out of place among the towering buildings surrounding it. The public toilets were indeed scary and to be avoided unless you don't have a keen sense of smell. Lovely Banyan trees to be seen.

Typical Chinese lakeside park. The Fujian Museum is adjacent. A place where the locals head to relax

The Xihu Park was near my apartment so I have been for a walk a few times and I think it is a very nice park with a lovely pagoda and view where you can also lend a boot to explore the lake around the park but there are a lot of parks like this in the world one so... More

A very large park, with many different things to do and see. I have been here several times, and I always find something new to see. The buildings around the park are lit with multi-coloured lights at night. There are many restaurants, bars, and hotels nearby

West Park Lake was created during the Jin dynasty. It is a popular recreational area for locals with a small zoo, a temple and numerous pagodas and pavilions on the waters edge. Nice for a stroll and to mingle with the local crowd.

We didn't go to Panda World here, but everywhere else was picturesque and a joy to explore. Lovely place to take a quiet stroll. Paddle boats are a bit difficult to steer, but are a fun idea. There are live performances almost every night.

While not as well maintained as perhaps the park in some other cities, it is still a very nice park.

Although this lake and park area shares a name with its brother in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province it is much smaller and less impressive. However it does have a love lake and park area, various activities (boats on the lake, a zoo with pandas etc) and is pretty enjoyable for an afternoon stroll. It is well kept, clean and pleasant.

Of all the "West Lakes" in China, this one is rated number 6 with the one at Hangzhou No. 1. It was a pleasant visit but not very memorable, unlike the Hangzhou one. Nevertheless, you should take a pleasant walk around.
