While this is a smaller lake it makes up for it's unique shape and the beauty as seen from either on the hill side above it or walking along the water. overall the entire circle walk can be done in around 2hours which includes stopping for pictures and resting. great view of shaoxing city from the top of the hill in the tea garden viewing area. while the walk around the lake is relatively flat if you decide to go up to the top of the rock quarry this could be a little more challenging for the elderly. however, it is a short walk to the top. located in the eastern side of Shaoxing, i believe there is a bus stop within a few minutes walk from the main entrance. However, you will need to read chinese in order to figure out where to go. otherwise easily accessed by taxi.

As the title says, this is one of the highlight of Shaoxing. Easily accessible by bus or taxi from Shaoxing town, this is one of the place that tourist should visit while in Shaoxing. A bus ride cost only RMB1 (Bus no. 1) and takes about 10 minutes journey from town center while a taxi ride should not cost more than RMB20. There is an entrance fee to this attraction, a additional RMB85 for a 20-30 minutes boat ride which is so much better compared to the boat ride I took in town from Luxun to Shen Yuan. In term of size, East Lake cannot be comparable to the West Lake of Hangzhou but this small lake has it's very own uniqueness. The vertical rock that stand so high from the lake with a boat ride makes them look so magnificent. Take a stroll at the path in the middle of the lake, and the view from this path is really beautiful.
