City overview

Hangzhou has the reputation for being one of the most beautiful cities in China, and rightly so. The biggest draw card for the area is West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Hangzhou’s most popular attraction. A visit to the city wouldn’t be complete without getting out onto the lake, which can be done in a variety of ways. Cruise boats go out regularly and visit the islands in the lake with night tours and private tours available, and paddle boats are also an option. There are also many paths around the lake for walking or biking. The best time to visit is on weekdays however, as weekends can get very busy.

In addition to West Lake there are several other things to see and do in Hangzhou. Three interesting museums worth a visit include the Hangzhou Cuisine Museum where visitors can get a look at hundreds of lifelike replicas of local dishes, the National Silk Museum where you can see how silk is produced, and the National Tea Museum which offers a detailed look at how tea gets from the field into the cup. Visitors who are particularly interested in tea can go to Meijiawu Tea Plantation, about 20 minutes outside of Hangzhou. Here you can see how tea is cultivated, roasted and packaged, and of course try some tea during the visit.

Other noteworthy attractions to consider include Qinghefang Ancient Street, a pedestrian street filled with shops, teahouses, and food stalls; Linyin Temple, one of the oldest temples in Hangzhou; and Prince Bay Park. Hangzhou is also a good destination for shopping, in particular it’s a great place to pick up silks and teas, two items the city is well known for.
