Boating on Houhai
If you’ve kids in a tow, hiring a boat for a float around Houhai is a great way to relax. Houhai is a manmade lake that was once the royal family’s private pool. Today, it’s a popular place for families who come here to cycle around the lake as well as couples who stroll hand in hand. Renting a covered paddle boat is ultra popular at the weekends and, especially on sunny spring and fall days, you’d do well to arrive early. Rentals at the boathouse are cash only, and you’ll need to leave a deposit, so bring a couple hundred renminbi.
