According to an announcement made by the world's largest travel site - TripAdvisor®, Hangzhou was chosen to be one of “2013 Hottest Travel Destinations in China” by global travelers.

Unlike West Lake — a UNESCO’s World Heritage site, Lingyin Temple — one of the top ten Buddhist temples of China, Impression West Lake is just a seven year-old show. The list is a big acknowledgement of the greatest of the show.

“Impression West Lake is the reflection of Heaven on the earth.” That's the theme set by the directors of Impression West Lake. Using water as its stage, mountains as its background, over-a-thousand-year history of the heavenly city — Hangzhou is what it has been trying to recreate. Featuring local culture of Hangzhou and unique charm of West Lake, the show enables audience to understand Hangzhou culture and history in a natural and vivid way. Although, there is no line in the show, its dreamlike performances can activate viewer’s emotion and imagination. That's why the show can attract over 400,000 visitors every year.


The road to make the world to understand every aspect of the profound culture of China is long and rough. However, Impression West Lake, only demonstrating just small part of it, has taken a big step on this road and won the world’s recognition.
