A heavenly place

Beautiful, peaceful, still-water, lake area, home to ancient Chinese architecture. Refreshing breeze coming off the lake.

A different West Lake
mars 2019 • Entre amis
This place differs in place. The Su Zhou West lake is majestic, colourful & beautiful especially when the cherry blossom blooms. ChaoZhou West Lake here its water sits still without much movements & it previously stench of pungent stale water. A few pavilions & bridge are surrounded by vegetation of full grown trees, provided shade for those using the footpaths & road lined vendors within the shop.

市民遊玩好去處
nov. 2018 • Entre amis
不需要入場費的公園,樹木和湖泊各有景致,週末放鬆的好地方。西湖附近有歷史悠久的「牛雜店」,遊湖配美食,快樂就是這麽簡單。

Still water in a busy part of Chaozhou
janv. 2019 • En couple
This is a relatively small lake that has the park on one side and the old part of Chaozhou on the other. You can easily walk around this. It's a busy part of town and in the morning the footpath will be crowded with people walking and people selling vegetables, particularly at the northern end. It's also quite noisy from the motorbikes. You can get a good idea of how people live by walking along here. The path along the lake in the park is equally busy all through the day but no one selling anything. A good place for a walk.

A lake of history and culture
oct. 2018 • En solo
West Lake was the first Chaozhou attraction I saw when the bus from the bullet train station drove me into the city of Chaozhou. The simmering picturesque lake studded with few striking yellow colored paddling boats captivated my attention and from afar, I could see her name (潮州西湖) on the front entrance vividly clear from the main road when the bus passed by. I subsequently alighted at the Arch Street (牌坊街) and walked my way to the lake.

Chaozhou city is very walkable with many attractions concentrated at the area between the Arch Street and the West Lake. There are trickshaws and buggies to be rented to bring you around if you don't feel like walking. It is rather relax exploring from the Arch Street and slowly walked your way to West Lake.

Along the way, enjoy the fun of tasting the many Chaozhou delicacies on both sides of the Arch Street, admiring the architectural beauty of the many ancient houses and shops and observed the livelihood of the ordinary folks of the `Teochew nan' (Chaozhou people).

The entrance into the West Lake is free. The Lake is not as big as the West Lake in Hangzhou but the environment is equally peaceful and serene. There are many such lakes in China and it did not appeal to me as an extraordinary attraction after having been to many such `West Lake' in other parts of China.

The lake has suffered much in her history. It was destroyed during the Mongol invasion and rebuilt. It occupied quite a sizeable area but during the Ming dynasty, half of the lakes was filled with stones to make space for the construction of the city fortress wall. It was devastated when fighting between the Qing army and the rebels erupted in Chaozhou. During the Republic of China period, the warlord appropriated this lake as part of his private garden park.

The Hanbi Pavilion (涵碧楼) located in the central of the lake was constructed in 1922. It became an office for Zhou En Lai when he successfully led the Eastern Expedition to eradicate the warlord in this region in 1925.

During the split with the Kuomintang, he led a communist uprising in Nanchang to occupy the Choashan region. Zhou delivered his revolutionary speech to the masses at this pavilion when his forces occupied Chaoshan for 7 days. Unfortunately, the Kuomintang army retook control of the city and the reforms implemented by Zhou En Lai in the Chaoshan region only lasted for 7 days. Historians named this period as the `Chaoshan 7th day Red' The large photo of Zhou En Lai was displayed at the museum hall in the pavilion.

Due to his contributions towards the liberation of Chaozhou from the warlords and the Kuomintang, Zhou was well-respected as the great revolutionary hero of the Chaozhou people. The sculpture of Commander Zhou En Lai in army uniform stands robustly outside the Hanbi Pavilion.

There is also a small hill at the back of this lake and I strolled my way up to find a Buddhist temple and some wall calligraphy engravings but nothing much.

Nevertheless, it is fascinating to look at the rich heritage history of this West Lake as it forms an indispensable part of the worthwhile exploration journey to discover the gems of this ancient city of Chaozhou.

不一樣的西湖
nov. 2017 • En famille
杭州的西湖是出了名的,這個潮州西湖名氣及範圍不及杭州,但不妨來看看,感受它的寧靜美,湖光山色,有水榭樓台及人文遺跡,很休閒的地方。

A peaceful lake in a city
juin 2017 • En solo
The West Lake of Chaozhou gives certain serenity. On a solo stroll, the sounds of nature are around. Try to stare at the reflection of the sky on the water. There is a park to sit around nearby too.

风景秀丽的公园
juil. 2016
公园里环境很好,如果早上早点去可以免门票。清早会有特别多人在那里跳舞、打拳、运动等等。园内似乎也有一些文化景点,不过我没进去参观过。如果饿了出门就是很多吃东西的地方,想品尝潮州美味的话不妨试试。
