Mother’s Day – Step Aboard in Style 2017-06-27
The time has come again for the West Lake Night Cruise to set sail - so why not step aboard in style and celebrate with the most important woman in the world. Cruising along the West Lake with your mother in tow is a magical way to spend any day but what makes this Mothering Sunday so special is the night cruise which guarantees to leave you and your loved one enlightened by the sights and sounds of the city’s glistening masterpiece.


The West Lake Night Cruise consists of many different types of boat with each catering to almost every need. Why not let your minds drift as boatmen row you away from the bustling crowds or if you dare why not attempt to drive a boat yourself. Whether you immerse yourselves in a Jiangnan Si Zhu* performance while savoring a cup of Longjing green tea, or simply soak up the beauty of the West Lake at night, either way, this Mother’s Day is sure to be overflowing with fond memories to come.

*Jiangnan Si Zhu is a traditional Han National music performance by musical instruments such as Erhu, Pipa and flute and is a grade one National Intangible Cultural Heritage.
