Tour details

Spend a full day exploring the stunning city of Hangzhou, one of China's most beautiful destinations. In this day, you will get to see the most famous sites in Hangzhou.

Tour Details

Meet your private guide upon pickup at the Hangzhou railway station or your hotel lobby in downtons. Set out on a full day of sightseeing in the comfort of an air-conditioned private vehicle. Please feel free to talk with your guide about any particular interests you have, so the commentary and itinerary can be customized.

Start with a 45-minute boat ride on tranquil West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site and perhaps Hangzhou’s most famous attraction. Relax amid enchanting scenery as your guide points out historic pagodas, Chinese-style arched bridges, tree-lined walkways, green islands and lush gardens. Finish your cruise at Huagang (Flower Harbor) Park Wharf. Stroll through part of the 54-acre (22-hectare) park to see the many varieties, including a peony garden that blooms in April, and stop at Red Carp Pond — a popular spot for viewing fish.

Next, you will drive to Lingyin Temple (translated as ‘Temple of the Soul’s Retreat’), considered one of the 10 most famous Buddhist temples in China. From the Zen monastery near Feilai Peak (Feilai Feng), walk along a cobblestone pathway leading to Amanfayun Village, a restored Chinese village dating back hundreds of years and situated in a remote forest of camphor and bamboo.

For lunch you have two options: purchase your meal at a local restaurant recommended by your guide, or head to a local tea farmer’s home for a meal of local delicacies such as chicken, West Lake carp, lotus root, bamboo shoots and other tasty vegetables (own expense).

After lunch, continue to Meijiawu Tea Village, situated in the rural foothills of the West Lake district. Learn about the production of Xihu Longjing tea, also known as Dragon Well tea, and sip the fragrant green tea as you relax in this scenic setting.

Your final stop is Song Dynasty Imperial Street, renamed Zhongshanlu Beiduan. Walk with your guide along this road that stretches 400 meters (1,310 feet) and leads to the imperial palace of the Northern Song Dynasty (AD 960–1127). At the end of the tour transfer to the train station or to your Hotel in Hangzhuo
