List of tourist attraction visited today :
– Thousand Island Lake
– Hangzhou Tea House
– Yue Fei Temple
– West Lake
– Qinghefang Pedestrian Street
– Night of West Lake Show

After a very tired day climbing Huangshan mountain yesterday, we must wake up early today to continue our trip to the next city. We departed from our hotel at 6 o’clock and heading to Hangzhou by bus. Along the way, we visited a very famous scenery place in China, 千岛湖 Qiandao Hu (Thousand Island Lake). This place located at Zhejiang, China. After about 3 hours of trip, we finally arrived at Thousand Island Lake.

千岛湖 Qiandao Hu (Thousand Island Lake)

Qiandao Hu is known as the hometown of Sun Quan, Emperor of Wu kingdom in Three Kingdoms Era. When i search on the internet, i just know that Thousand Island receives about 5 million tourists annually and it has been honored as one of the three best tourism areas in China, besides the capital Beijing and the Three Gorges of the Yangtze River. The Thousand-Island Lake is also honored as “World’s Garden City” and “China’s Best Preserved Ecological Town“. But honestly, based on my opinion i feel that the honor titles are a little bit too much. There are a lot of a place like this in my country. So even it is beautiful, but i don’t think that this place is extraordinary and make it as a place you can’t missed when when you go to China.
