Dredging to Expand Xianghu Lake Tourism Resort
The provincial government has approved the city's plan to expand the Xianghu Lake Tourism Resort by 2.4 square kilometers. The project is to be completed by October 2016.
Xianghu Lake grew in popularity thanks to the opening of Metro Line 1. It is as beautiful as the West Lake and has attracted many people to spend a peaceful and relaxing weekend there with a tent.
Zhai Wenbin, a resort official, said the lake used to be much bigger and more beautiful in the past and large-scale dredging can resort the lake to its original grandeur.
He said the Xianghu Lake will eventually line up with the Qiantang River and will become the largest tourist attraction south of the river with the Hangzhou Polar Ocean Park, Hangzhou Amusement Park and other facilities.

In order to improve the high-speed railway connection system and promote the construction of scenic areas in the whole region, Qiandao Lake opened its direct tourist buses to rural scenic areas on July 1. That is to say, people who are at the Qiandao Lake High-Speed Railway Station can take these buses directly to such rural scenic areas as the Xiajiang Village Scenic Area, the Shilin Scenic Area and the Jiangjia Scenic Area. These three routes pass through Fengshuling Town, Lishang Township, Shilin Town, Jieshou Village and Jiangjia Town. It will be more convenient for tourists to reach these scenic areas.
