City Guide

On foot

You can take a stroll around the main city area to immerse yourself in the daily activities of the locals, or around West Lake to enjoy the natural scenery. Walking in summer might be unbearable due to the scorching heat. In winter, despite the cold, it is still worth a stroll due to beautiful snow scenes. Look out for the huge crowd rushing from Shanghai to watch the snow melt from Baidi’s “Broken Bridge” (Duanqiao 断桥). It takes 3 hours to walk around the 12 kilometer circumference of West Lake.

There are three main causeways across West Lake: Baidi which is 2 kilometers long and takes around 30 minutes; Sudi at a distance of 2.7 kilometers and takes about 40 minutes; Yanggongdi, 3 kilometers long, takes about 50 minuets.

Rent a bicycle

There are many bicycle rental kiosks around the city but the bicycle rental card can only be applied at four locations. Bring along your passport for identification purposes when applying for the bicycle rental card.

  • The main entrance of Orioles Singing in the Willows Park (Liulangwenying 柳浪闻莺) at No. 11 Nanshan Road (Nanshan Lu 南山路) near West Lake Museum.
  • The main entrance of Wushan Square (Wushan guangchang 吴山广场) at Hefang Street (Jefang Jie 河坊街) near Wushan Square public transport station (Wushan guangchang gong jiao zhan 吴山广场公交站).
  • The main entrance of Youth Palace (Qingshao niangong青少年宫) at Beishan Road (Beishan Lu 北山路), Baochu Road (Baochu Lu保俶路) near “Broken Bridge” (Duanqiao 断桥).
  • At Hangzhou Bus IC Card Service Center (Long xiang qiao). Address: 20 Longxiang Road.

How to rent a bicycle

300 yuan in total (200 as deposit and 100 as prepaid rental fee, which can be returned together with the deposit if there is any remaining amount left.) One passport can apply up to a maximum of 5 bicycle rental cards.


0-59 minutes (1st hour) Free
60-119 minutes (2nd hour) 1 yuan
120-179 minutes (3rd hour) 2 yuan
180-239 (4th hour) 3 yuan
240-299 (5th hour) 6 yuan

** From the 5th hour onwards, rates will increase by 3 yuan every hour. (E.g. 300-359 minutes, 6th hour is 9 yuan, 360-419 minutes, 7th hour is 12 yuan, etc.).

** If you take public transport during your rental time, tap your bicycle rental card upon boarding the bus to pause the timing, which will stop for 90 minutes. It will resume counting after 90 minutes, regardless of how long your bus ride took. In short, your free rental for the use of the bicycle will be extended by 90 minutes if you take public transport, thus allowing you a total of 150 minutes of free rental time.
