Slender West Lake (瘦西湖 Shòuxīhú) is a scenic spot in Yangzhou City, Jiangsu Province, China.
Located in Hanjiang District of Yangzhou, just northwest of the city's historic center, the park has several attractions: Lotus Flower Pagoda (Lianhua SO, a white structure reminiscent of the White Pagoda (Baita) in Beijing's Beihai Park; Small Gold Mountain (Xiao Jin Shan); and the Fishing Platform (Diaoyutai), a favorite retreat of the Qianlong Emperor.
The emperor was so gratified by his luck in fishing at this spot that he ordered additional stipends for the town. As it turns out, his success had been augmented by local swimmers who lurked in the lake busily attaching fish to his hook.
