Shichahai is a famous scenic area. It includes three lakes, Front Sea, Back Sea and West Sea. The name Shichahai means “Sea with Ten Temples” in Chinese. It got this name because here were actually ten temples around the lake. Shichahai has been a famous place for leisure and spend summer time since Qing dynasty. It is nice to go around the sea and travel through some famous spots with stories behind them. Shichahai is surrounded with places of historic interest and scenic beauty.
