Houhai is not far from where my daughter lives, Houhai means 'rear lake' and is a popular place with locals and visitors.
The streets leading down to the lake are full of really lovely shops, brilliant for buying all the presents. The shop above had amazing jewellery :)
So pretty :) I particularly love the little boy in the photo below, trying to post his letter :)
Yes the young lady is wearing a wedding dress with a denim jacket. Before the actual wedding ceremony the couple dress in their finery and have 'pre-wedding' photos taken in a pretty place. The dress the bride is wearing in this photo is not the one she will wear for her wedding. We saw two or three couples having their photos taken in this area, I think it is a lovely idea.
Looking towards the main lake from the bridge. We were on our way to one of the lovely restaurants for food :)
Tourist boat trips :)
Another photo looking towards the main lake, can you see the crocodile in the front of the photo? It is of course a stone one, with a matching one on the other side of the canal, both were fenced off, but I am not sure why.
