Hang Zhou, Heaven On the Earth

To product
Marco Polo once said that Hang Zhou was “beyond dispute the finest and the noblest land in the world". It is a city rich with history and culture, spanning back over 2000 years. It made a name for itself in the sixth century, when the Grand Canal opened up and linked the area to other centers of trade. The Song dynasty helped to make Hang Zhou famous when the imperial family moved there in the 12th Century. With its inviting views and outstanding scenery, the area soon became popular with numerous artists, poets and painters seeking inspiration in this little bit of “paradise.” A 2.5 hours drive will take you to the city of Hang Zhou. You will first cruise across the West Lake to view the unforgettable scenery such as the 'Three Pools Mirroring the Moon', the Bai and Su causeways, and Solitary Hill. The boat ride starts at the Fish & Flower Harbor and ends up by the Shangri-la Hotel or reverse. After lunch, you will also visit Guo’s Villa that is the best existing traditional private garden in Hang Zhou. Dragon Well (Longjing) tea is the most famous throughout China. You will be guided to the China Tea Museum and the Meijiawu Tea Plantation, to discover the history of Chinese tea and the tea ceremony. Before turning back to Shanghai , stop at the Qiantang River and overlook the Six Harmonies Pagoda.
