The second episode of a cultural promotional series — The Romance and Love at West Lake, produced by the Hangzhou municipal publicity department in Zhejiang province — was released today to explore the charm of the West Lake from the perspective of foreigners.

Friday marks the eleventh anniversary of the addition of West Lake Cultural Landscape to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list.

The picturesque landscape in all seasons has been depicted in thousands of poems and legends in China. It is also a tourist attraction, not only for its beautiful scenery but also for its association with aesthetic thought and its influence on gardening design around the world.

Nicolas from France and Naty from the United States are married and currently live and work in Hangzhou. Besides being attracted by West Lake‘s beautiful natural scenery, they appreciate the enchanting love stories associated with the lake, which is known as the land of love in many classic performances, including the Peking Opera The Legend of the White Snake, the musical drama A Plum Wife and Crane Sons, and the classic Yue Opera The Butterfly Lovers.

A video on the Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City will be released on July 6, the anniversary of its being added to the World Cultural Heritage list.

Watch the video to discover the charm of the West Lake in Hangzhou.
