Impressions of Xi Hu 西湖印象

From literatures, I always have the impression that Xi Hu was the most beautiful lake in China.

With AirAsia, Malaysian can take a weekend, jump on the plane, take a stroll along the lakeside and coming back next day. Of course, not many kiasu (‘afraid to lose’) Malaysians like me willing do that. What a waste of cheap low-cost airline ticket. Hang Zhou is so close to Shanghai, so the trip has to be at least 1 week to make it worth while.
