Travelling in Hangzhou – City Guide

As the saying goes, “Above us there are the Heavens, whilst here on Earth there are Suzhou and Hangzhou.” Since ancient times, Hangzhou has been fascinating people. Here, one will alternatively find willows along the sides of the West Lake, water flowing beneath small bridges and specialty stores. Natural and urban sceneries complement each other’s beauty as classical refinement and modern styles combine perfectly. In such a place, you’ll be able to appreciate the natural wonders of the West Lake, taste the amazing creations of skillful craftsmen near the Leifeng Pagoda, catch a glimpse of such e-commerce giants as “Alibaba”, and even visit the 2D world of the China International Cartoon & Animation Festival. Hangzhou, “Paradise on Earth”, is sure to amaze you!

 

Splendid Jiangnan by Water and Mountain

Hangzhou is located in the ancient and prosperous region of Jiangnan, in the south of fertile mid-lower reaches of the Yangtze River and bordering the Hangzhou Bay of the East China Sea in the east. There are four distinct seasons here, all offering pleasant sceneries and varied products. Hangzhou encompasses 9 municipal districts and 2 counties. It is also in charge of 2 county-level municipalities. Encircled by water, with its lush urban vegetation and the West Lake in its center, the city is a natural oxygen bar. It’s as if one had set foot within a luxuriant traditional landscape painting.

 

“Of All Places in Jiangnan, Hangzhou is the Most Memorable”

—Don’t miss the following destinations in Hangzhou

“The West Lake, just like the beauty of Xishi, remains dazzling in any dress and apparel.” The natural beauty of the West Lake and its surrounding mountains, as well as its numerous scenic spots and historical sites, have earned itself a great international reputation. Come rain or come shine, at dawn or at dusk, the splendors of its scenery never fade. All year long, as they ride or stroll along the lakeside, people will enjoy the sights of spring blossoms, the autumn moon, summer lotuses and the winter snow. One could as well prepare a pot of Longjing tea to drink while admiring the colors of the West Lake.

 

The Broken Bridge got its name in the Tang dynasty (618–907). In the past, there was a gate on the bridge, and a cornice over the gate. When snow fell, it would accumulate on that cornice, and the two ends of the bridge, making it seem broken from afar. The Broken Bridge came into being thereafter. The “Lingering Snow on the Broken Bridge” is one of the ten famous views of the West Lake. Every time it snows, people abound to the West Lake to appreciate the moving hill-and-water scenery clad in silvery white. The Chinese folk love story, The Tale of the White Serpent, is also set here. As the legend goes, the Broken Bridge is where the couple, White Lady and Xu Xian encountered. Thus, it has become an ideal location for romantic rendezvous.

 

The Lingyin Temple leans on the West Lake’s northern peak and faces the Feilaifeng cliff. The two narrow and towering geological features are covered by lush trees, whereas the ancient temple in the mountains’ depths hides in cloudy mist. Built in the Eastern Jin dynasty (317–420), the Temple boasts a long history of approximately 1,700 years. Its name has the meaning of “the retreat of the soul.” Concealed amid the mountains and the forest, it boasts a quiet and beautiful environment. The interior of the temple is filled with the fragrance of the burning incense sticks offered by numerous faithful disciples. It is said that the Lingyin Temple has mysterious effects. The Feilaifeng cliff, on the other hand, has earned its international fame due to the Buddhist monk Ji Gong.

 

The Xixi Wetland is another celebrated view made famous by Chinese director Feng Xiaogang’s film If You Are the One. Its beauty uniquely resides in the six crisscrossing streams that form its waters and its soul. One might be tempted to follow the example of the refined scholars who once lived in the area to stop for a while to admire the colorful summer lotuses reddening against the light of the sun. Or one might perhaps prefer rafting, singing, taking pictures and tasting freshwater produces… There are plenty of things to do, so be sure to thoroughly enjoy yourself!

 

The Onethousand Island Lake comprises 1,078 islands different in shape, as if jewels on a plate of jade, enhancing one another’s beauty. It rivals the mountain-and-river sceneries of Guilin and the vastness of Taihu Lake. Transportation from Hangzhou to Onethousand Island Lake is very convenient: it is only a two-hour drive from the city, with many buses shuttling back and forth. The InterContinental Onethousand Island Lake Resort on the Mt. Xian Peninsula is a traveller’s favorite, as well as one of the few international luxury-brand resort hotels on the island. A night on the island surrounded the mountains and next to the lake, escaping from the clamor of the city, is sure to be a unique way to enjoy these enchanting and boundless natural landscapes on the peninsula.

 

Travel Tips

The Su Causeway, situated within the scenic area of the West Lake, commemorates the significant contribution of Su Dongpo (after whom it was named) to the administration of the area. The long causeway stretches along the riverside; in spring when the wind blows, poplars and willows as well as peaches paint the area in green and pink. Every morning, the first rays of sun reveal a mirror-like lake surface on which the silhouettes of bridges are reflected. Strolling here amid the picturesque mountain-and-lake scenery while listening to the songs of the birds feels like taking a graceful step into a landscape painting.

 

From downtown Hangzhou, you can reach an ever-popular theme park - Songcheng by public transportation. You’ll find the completely renovated Great Song Cultural Interactive Museum as well as the new show Liu Yong & The Pavilion of the Temptress Moon. You’ll also discover a tableau vivant version of the famous painting Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival, two haunted mansions, the Pelt Inn Audio Room, and other high-tech and interactive entertainments sure to keep you surprised. A visit to Songcheng Park feels like warping into another epoch, as if 1,000 years converged here in this very location.

 

The Zhejiang University, originally the Qiushi Academy, was founded in 1897. It is located along the West Lake. As you stroll around the West Lake, you can consider visiting this century-old, historic top Chinese university and appreciate the atmosphere on the campus, sometimes quiet and serene, sometimes bustling with life!

 

Living on the Lakeside, Living on the Mountains

Hangzhou offers a wide selection of accommodations ranging from luxury hotels to budget inns, most of which are agglomerated around Wulin Square and the West Lake Scenic Area. The Beijing–Hangzhou Grand Canal is also situated fairly near Wulin Square and swerves through Hangzhou’s prosperous commercial district. Subway, buses and other modes of public transportation all converge in this location only 4km away from Hangzhou Railway Station.

 

All types of starred hotels are scattered all around the West Lake Scenic Area. They offer a close-range view of the unique lake scenery of Hangzhou as well as convenient transportation to any other district in the city. You may choose to experience different types of accommodation according to your preferences. For example, spend a night on the artistic Nanshan Road and enjoy the views of the Leifeng Pagoda in the sunset, or that of the Evening Bell at Nanping Hill; or then again, reserve a room somewhere on the evergreen Hupao Road, near the Four-eyed Well, and enjoy a carefree and quiet stay on the mountain.

 

A Luxurious and Unique Shopping Experience

In addition to its beautiful scenery, Hangzhou is also a shopping paradise. The various displays of women clothing along Wulin Road dazzle the eye. On Qinghe Lane, you’ll find century-old brands attracting numerous customers.

 

It is a lifetime experience to go on a shopping spree down one of Hangzhou’s “feature” streets. Currently, Hangzhou counts 13 “feature” commercial streets, among which Hefang Street, also known as “Qinghe Lane”, is a must-see destination for newcomers to search for unique souvenirs: figurines kneaded with mud, spinning tops, iron hoops, rattle-drums, etc. Moreover, one may also opt to wander down the Imperial Street that is Zhongshan Road, a marketplace reminiscent of the charm and life in the Southern Song dynasty. Here, almost everyone makes a living by the cultivation and commerce of tea. There is also Qingzhi Cove, a mountain road of white walls and black tiles, among many others. Each street is particular in its own way, and each deserves to be explored.

 

Shopping malls in Hangzhou are mostly concentrated in the Wulin Commercial District and the Hubin Commercial District. The Wulin Square, located north of the West Lake, is Hangzhou’s most bustling commercial district. The Yintai Mall and the Hangzhou Tower, among others, are excellent choices for shopping.

 

In Hangzhou, You Won’t Be Able to Keep Yourself from Eating!

The great poet Su Dongpo of the Song dynasty once exclaimed: “No other place under the Heavens can rival the grandeur of the banquets offered in the city of Hangzhou.” Su Dongpo is also known for “halting his horse at the fragrant smell [of alcohol, food, etc.]” whenever in Hangzhou. Among the eight great Chinese cuisines, Hangzhou dishes belong to the cuisine of Zhejiang. They feature fresh seasonal ingredients, meticulous cooking, various kinds, a wonderful balance between spices, and tender textures, making them popular in Jiangnan.

 

Hangzhou dishes are easily found all over its commercial districts and in its “feature” streets, where many small restaurants enjoy incredible reputations. If you wish to have a taste of authentic Longjing shrimps, braised Dongpo pork, mud-baked chicken and other delicacies, Gaoyin Street is the ideal destination for you. There you’ll find both grassroots eateries as well as famous classic restaurants.

 

You’ll find all kinds of international cuisines at the Lakeside Gourmet District. On Hefang Street, the Dingsheng cakes and Qianwei tofu puddings are worth a try. Meanwhile, in the Shengli River Gourmet District, you’ll find trademarked restaurants and stalls famous for their midnight snacks. Thus the locals of Hangzhou often say: “In the south there is Hefang Street; in the north there is Shengli River.”

 

Experience the Spectacular Culture of Hangzhou!

Hangzhou locals live distinct lifestyle. On the one hand, they might go to Meijiawu Village and Mt. Longjing for a leisurely stroll, or to drink tea while playing Mahjong; on the other hand, they might also go to one of Nanshan Road’s bars for a crazy night out. On the weekends, they might bring their kids to Hangzhou Paradise Park and Sea World, among other places, for a fun day out; or they might also bring their families boating for a relaxed and carefree afternoon surrounded by mountains and water.

 

After the 2016 G20 Summit in Hangzhou, the light show of the Qianjiang New City has become one of Hangzhou’s new cultural attractions. It starts at 6:30 and 7:30 PM every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. In the night, 70,000 LED lights shine on over 30 skyscrapers along the bank of the Qiantang River, creating a “giant screen” showing a scroll of images with “Chinese style and Jiangnan charm”.

 

The Hangzhou West Lake Music Festival held yearly on the lakeside has become a perfect platform for the young generation to express themselves. Likewise, the Strawberry Music Festival, a favorite of rock and roll musicians, also brings infinite passion and vitality to this “paradise city”.

 

Must-Try: Nightlife in Hangzhou!

Imagine running around the West Lake at night, swerving between beautiful modern and natural sceneries. In the distance you’ll see the reflection of the Leifeng Pagoda on the water surface, as well as that of thousands of stars in a single line. The West Lake at night puts on a spectacle completely different from its daytime allures. You may want to try climbing up Gem Mountain to have a bird’s-eye view of the beautiful scenery of the West Lake at night, or ride to Longjing Mountain to enjoy quietness unimaginable during daytime.

 

There are no urban neon lights shining over the Longwu Tea Village. Imagine sitting down with a pot of tea in a courtyard or on an open-air balcony, watching the starry sky, relaxing by the Qiantang River, and watching the sunset, one leaves the bustle of the city behind. As the night falls, the light of lamps over the Qiantang River Bridge gradually grows into gorgeous brightness, as in a dream.

 

You may also want to head to the RV Camping Base in the Qing Valley and experience the true inner peace that the wilderness offers. Enjoy a drink and BBQ as the mountains and the water of the Qing Valley surround you; have a party and lose yourself to the night…

 

Modern Business Hub

Hangzhou is a pilot city for national informatization and e-commerce. The city strives to create a “Silicon Valley on a Riverside Paradise”. Its high and new technology industry is showing great momentum, and has already become one of Hangzhou’s characteristics and advantages.

 

With the birth of Alibaba, today’s Hangzhou has become the global capital of mobile payment, which has also made it an iconic location for e-commerce in the new era. Alibaba’s West Creek Park, also known as Taobao City, is the head office of the famous Internet giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. The design of its main building was completed by the great Japanese designer Kengo Kuma, making it the leading e-commerce platform center in China today.

 

The internationally renowned Hangzhou West Lake World Expo attracts a great number of tourists every year. First held in 1929 as the West Lake Expo, it has transformed into a grand exhibition of the history, culture and scenery of Hangzhou. Every year, it offers a great cultural and natural banquet to the people of Hangzhou as well as its tourists.

 

The Qianjiang New City integrates office, finance, trade, information, commerce, tourism and residence, attracting big companies and groups all over the planet who choose to set up their head offices here. As a CBD, its function is geared towards comprehensive services.
