Full Day West Hill, Dragon Gate, Golden Palace and Dianchi Lake including Lunch

Pick up from hotel, explore the West Hill which is set in mountains well covered by evergreen woods and filled with sweet songs by lovely birds. As a Chinese idiom says, 'Once you ascend Longmen (Dragon Gate), you would receive a sudden boost in your prestige'. Dragon Gate is a certain gorge on a river flanked by precipices and with a natural dam. If carps swimming upstream could jump over the dam, they would become dragons. Continue to visit Dianchi Lake and the nickname is the "Sparkling Pearl Embedded in a Highland" and is a freshwater fault lake. After that, head to visit Golden Palace, and there is a fine building made of bronze. It is commonly known as Jindian (the "Golden Temple"). Transfer back to hotel.
