West Lake - World Nature Heritage
West Lake, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011, was described as a cultural landscape that has influenced garden design in the rest of China as well as in Japan and Korea over the centuries and reflects the idealized fusion between humans and nature of traditional China. This is a cultural treasure that has influenced poets and painters throughout the ages for its natural beauty and historical relics. It has also been among the most important sources of inspiration for Chinese garden designers via the numerous temples, pagodas, gardens, and artificial islands within the lake.
