Hangzhou is a relatively unexciting city during the day, but it really shines at night when thousands of neon lights are switched on and the lake, its musical fountain and most temples and pagodas in and around Hangzhou are illuminated. The entire area gets a magical look, as in a fairy tale. At 10pm a number of lights are switched off.
