The causeway enable you to "walk across the lake" while seeing the water and the shoreside sights on both sides. "Electric cars" are provided as a cheap and faster alternative to walking. But it's a very nice walk, and takes you past several scenic attractions.

Walking along banks of West Lake lined with blooming willow trees, while light breeze caresses floral beds underneath mild sunshine, is sheer bliss. Nature's best present to mankind...
