We take a big walk after dinner but still can't find that lake, maybe tomorrow. We find another street of more upmarket/mid-range sort of restaurants for the domestic tourists that looked excellent.
在饭后我们散步了好久,但是还是找不到西湖,明天吧。我们找到另外一条很多高档/中档餐馆的街,都是国内的游客。看起来很不错。

We finally find West Lake, have the world's longest shoe shine and eat more pan fried dumplings than we thought possible.
我们终于找到了西湖,擦了世界上最长时间的鞋,还吃了比我们以为我们能吃的多得多的生煎。




How could we spend a whole day wandering around a city and not find a lake this freaking big?
我们是怎么做到在杭州走了那么久都没找到这么大一个湖的?

Walking around West Lake is supremely pleasant after the buzz of Shanghai. You can walk around the whole lake in a few hours, crossing over the causeways built hundreds of years ago.
在经历了上海的喧闹之后,在西湖边走是极端的享受。你可以花几个小时走完整个湖,路过几百年前造的横跨西湖的堤。

It's just a real pleasant place to hang out, and this time of year wasn't too overcrowded.
这里非常适合休憩,而且每年的这个时候这里不那么拥挤。

We tried to stop and have a coffee and this lovely lake-side cafe but it was a $20 cup of tea and smorgasboard or nothing. Shame.
我们试着停下来在湖边的咖啡厅喝点咖啡,但是这里一杯茶就要20澳元,太宰人了。不应该。

Chinese domestic tourism in a nutshell. Folks arrive in buses, follow around a tour guide with a flag, then get back on the bus. Safety in numbers. We did however meet some young local travellers getting into independant travel via the growing hostel and YHA scenes., which we thought was wonderful.
中国国内旅游的管中窥豹。人们坐大巴来,跟着带旗子的导游走,然后回到车上。人多安全。然而我们也遇到一些年轻人出来自助旅行,住在日益增多的青年旅舍里面。我们认为这是个好事。

Where there's Chinese tourists there's snacks, and West Lake does not disappoint.
只要有中国人的地方就有小吃。西湖也没让我们失望。
