Hi Bill,I just want to thank you for allocating such a good seat for my purchase. It was perfect, close to the stage, yet not blocking anyone when we stood up to take photos. I have recommended my friends for this show, and your service, and not to mention this fantastic seat at  VIP Seats.

(2) Donna says:
It was the most amazing performance I have ever seen! To see so many performers moving across the water was breath taking. They ran, they danced, they did acrobatics. I feel blessed to have witnessed such a wonderful show. Hangzhou is beautiful. Impression West Lake is a show that you do not want to miss!

I just saw the West Lake show early October 2010. A little bit chilly at night, but the show was amazingly beautiful. The music was beautiful. China never disappoints (although you need to get used to the culture).
