Located right on the shores of Yangcheng Lake, it has also quickly established itself as the destination for local and international gourmands wanting to savour China’s most prized hairy crabs and other excellent lake specialities.

The delicious Hairy Crab (da zha xie), so known for its hirsute claws, has a short season from September to December.

The most prized Hairy Crabs in the world come from the deep, cold waters of Yangcheng Lake. Hairy Crabs served at Fairmont Yangcheng Lake are specially selected to ensure they are the lake’s finest specimens – juicy, tender and weighing at least 250 grams each. They are farmed according to responsible practices to ensure the population remains strong, as part of Fairmont’s ongoing green initiatives in the area.

The inaugural Hairy Crab Season Opening Ceremony and First Feast is set to become an annual tradition at Yangcheng Lake when the crabs reach maturation. Fairmont Yangcheng Lake will launch the first catch hairy crab ceremony, 2011 and dinner which will use the same theme as last year – ‘first catch’ aboard a local fishing boat. Witnessed by the guests, the very first hairy crabs of Yangcheng Lake are picked up by the chef and be sent to Yi Feng Court at Fairmont Yangcheng Lake, which is Kunshan’s finest Chinese restaurant .The grand finale was a crab connoisseur feast and cocktails at the restaurant.

For guests wanting to experience Yangcheng Lake’s five-star delights and famous Hairy Crabs for themselves, Fairmont Yangcheng Lake is currently offering an unbeatable ‘Real Crab in Real Style’ package, available from September until December.
