Loving the Moment Instagram Highlights with Shangri-La Hangzhou

3 October, 2013

Having checked out Inner Mongolia’s 希拉穆仁草原 and 响沙湾 Desert and Xi’an 兵马俑 for the past week, we decided to stopover at Hangzhou for a breather from our busy travel itinerary – here at Hangzhou, we had the opportunity to check out one of the oldest Shangri-La hotel in China and an impressive performance 印象西湖 created by acclaimed director Zhang Yimou.  For a quick overview of what you can do and see in Hangzhou, check out the following Instagram shots collated as part of Shangri-la’s Loving the Moment experience.

The beautiful architecture of Shangri-La hotel Hangzhou 杭州香格里拉大酒店 – the hotel is split into 2 wings – west and east wing connected by a sheltered walkway; you can also take a hotel buggy to get to each of the wings #lovingthemoment


Shangri-La Hangzhou offers a great view of Hangzhou’s famous West Lake 西湖 – the picture below shows our view of West Lake from @shangrilahotels Hangzhou Horizon Club Lounge during sunset #lovingthemoment

Enjoying 印象西湖 Impression West Lake Performance with Shangri-La Hangzhou 杭州香格里拉大酒店

印象西湖 Impression West Lake – a must see show when u r here in Hangzhou. Amazing choreography and music!#lovingthemoment – The performance is very near to Shangri-La Hangzhou (just a few minutes walk from the West Wing of Shangri-La Hangzhou) and Shangri-La also has a West Lake Impressions Package that bundles the ticket price with your stay at the hotel.


Another example of the amazing stage sets of 印象西湖 Impression West Lake #lovingthemoment@shangrilahotels Hangzhou – the entire building set is actually on a mobile boat that can float around the lake!
