The upgraded show maintains 80% of the original program content and benefits from a new audio system which has been installed to delight audiences from all over the world.The name of the show is quoted from a very famous poem written by Bai Juyi ( 772 - 846 ), the great poet, litterateur and politician in Chinese Tang Dynasty ( 618 - 907 ). He used to be the mayor of Hangzhou, and was respected and loved by the local people since he did a lot work to make them live better.

It's a show worth watching, amazed, watching the performances that will be touched, technology combined with Chinese and Western dances.The lighting sound is very shocking.
I highly recommend tour guide Tommy for this Private Tour with impression westlake water show. Tommy is very reliable, very kind and will make everything he can to make your time with him perfect. Excellent English level and knowledge.If you stay overnight in Hangzhou, this night show in hangzhou is a must-see show to spend the night.
We (two friends and I) went on a night tour of Hangzhou with Sam. We visited among other things the West Lake region in the night and Sam gave us an informative and interesting tour. We were able also to ask specific questions about the places we visited and general questions about Chinese history. Sam was very informative and knowledgeable. A very good way to get to know the area quickly and interestingly. We stopped off and had a simple but very tasty dinner. The westlake water show was the highlight of the tour,the actors and actresses all well trained and very professional. Very good 45 mins show. Open air performance but it's covered with roof canvas.
Impressed with their creativity of using the lake as a stage to perform all kind of dance , singing , music instrument, ballet. It's unique china hangzhou culture show.
Our tour guide picked up us on time at our hotel lobby and drove us to the show. The lights and scenery are amazing, so if in Hangzhou you really should see this show. There will be loud conversations, people talking or watching videos on their phones during the show, and all manner of distractions, but we still recommend this. And we do recommend the VIP seats to stay a little bit away from the big group.
We booked this night tour with China hangzhou tour this Jun.Everything was confirmed promptly.After G20 Summit,I believed that Impression westlake show has been known to all the people who watch the evening show.The music was wonderful and lights were marvelous. And thanks for our tour guide Nancy telling us the interesting stories about Hangzhou on the day! I will recommend this hangzhou night show to my friends who want to visit Hangzhou!

Thanks for your time!
We booked this tour package including round way transfer for the show and guide service. The tour was well done by China hangzhou tour. This show is so amazing,even though the weather wasn’t great, cold and wet the show went on and was just as amazing as last year when I saw it. The Chinese are so talented, this is truly a stunning, beautiful show from start to finish. We booked this night with china hangzhou tour, which was easy and paid the little extra for the best seats, worth every penny and the highlight of my trip!!!
This night tour was well organized by China hangzhou tour. The impression show was spectacular, thoughtful and memorable performance (originally produced for the G20 Summit) - even in the pouring rain! Masterful synthesis by Zhang Yimou. Must see as part of a visit to Hangzhou (programme is under an hour long).
