There’s a saying in China that goes: “Up there is heaven, down here are Hangzhou and Suzhou.” Hangzhou is located on the coast of Eastern China and is a cultural, economic, and educational hub.
Heaven on Earth
During the Yuan dynasty, Hangzhou was called the most beautiful and luxurious city in the world by a famous Italian traveller Marco Polo. Having a long history of 2200 years, Hangzhou is one of seven ancient cities in China.
Hangzhou is also one of the most famous tourist cities, thanks to West Lake, one of China’s most famous natural landmarks. But the city is not just famous for its beauty. The food here is simply incredible and is characterised as fresh and a little bit sweet.
West Lake, the key feature of the city, is massive and adds lots of green splendor to the landscape. To admire the beauty of West Lake, visitors can leisurely bike, jog or walk along the paths that circumnavigate the lake
There are a number of small mountains that surround the city, making Hangzhou a great place for people who love to hike. Tucked out-of-sight are many ancient temples and pagodas that are open to visitors
Every year, people line up along the river that runs through the city to see a tidal bore, which often occurs in the fall
Considered a major transit hub of China. Shanghai is only 1 hour away by bullet train
Considered one of the safest and cleanest cities in China
