Best of Hangzhou Day Trip
One of China’s most illustrious tourist drawcards, Hángzhōu’s (杭州) dreamy West Lake panoramas and fabulously green and hilly environs can easily lull you into long sojourns.
Hangzhou was described by Marco Polo as 'the most beautiful and elegant city in the world'.
The heavenly beauty of West Lake and the many historical and cultural sites surrounding it draw hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. And Hangzhou remains this charm till today.
Contrasting to the hustle and bustle of the neighbouring Shanghai, Hangzhou is well-known for its extraordinary beauty and elegance. And it attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists to its exquisite West Lake(Xi Hu) area each year to enjoy the placid lake, beautiful gardens, reflecting pools, lavish temples and friendly lakeside teahouses.
Along with Hangzhou's famous Dragon Well Tea, tasty local cuisine, good shopping environment and modern facilities all make a trip to the city worthwhile.
During this trip, you will also visit one of the most significant and beautiful Buddhist monasteries in China - the Lingyin Temple. "Ling-yin" means "Soul's Retreat" in Chinese, therefore, the temple's name is commonly literally translated as Temple of the Soul's Retreat.
The temple features a large number of grottos and religious rock carvings, the most famous of which is the Feilai Feng (literally "the peak that flew hither").
