I was told that most of the islands in the lake were made artificially and we saw someone building a concert stage in the middle of the lake. The next few pictures are the buildings on the artificial island and you need to pay for boarding the boat and having a walk thereon.

In addition to its function as a tour spot, West Lake is a place for the city rowing team to train themselves and for taking wedding photos.

We cannot get close to this spot as we are running out of time. This is the tomb of Wusong, the one who killed a tiger after drinking 18 bowls of strong wines.

We left the boat at the entrance of Sudi. We took a half hour visit to Yuefei Temple before we went back to hotel to check out. Yuefei is very famous in Hangzhou and most Hangzhou people respect him. His tomb is also in this temple.

This temple is totally artificial. They built a "temple" and put a statue there for people to worship, but they allows you to take photo inside the temple, unlike the buddha.

The only thing that is worth to see is his tomb. In addition to the tomb itself, there are 4 bronze statues kneeing to Yuefei. These 4 people were the "murderers" of Yuefei so the people put these statues there to apologize. It is funny that there was a notice asking people not to spit on them.

That concludes our visit to Hangzhou. I did not have a look at the airport until I was ready to leave.

How comes the airports nowadays are built in the same style like the one in Chek Lap Kok ?????
