 If you are tired of the bustle of Shanghai tours, why not come to Hangzhou? It only spends you about an hour from Shanghai to Hangzhou. You may have appreciated the antique beauty of Xi’an tours but want the authentic touch to do something that you have struggled to do.Then, I fully recommend the “Tea Culture Tour”.

 

Through the “Tea Culture Tour”, you will learn the history and the story behind why tea is pivotal in Chinese culture. Believe me, the tour feels like you are watching a holiday TV programme, that’s how good it was!

 

 

As the only tea museum in China, it display tea’s history, tea events, tea sets and tea customs in China. It is an excellent insight to many origins of tea, where you will have an interesting cultural experience. The tea museum is not exactly a museum, per se. Instead, it encompasses actively-farmed tea plantations and introduces visitors to the broad spectrum of tea-growing and tea-making.

 

Dragon Well Tea Plantation

 

Covering an area of 132 acres, the Dragon Well Tea Plantation in Dragon Well Village of Hangzhou, faces the West Lake to the west and Qiantang River to the south. Dragon Well Village is a picturesque wonderland surrounded by mountains with a large area of tea trees. At the hilltop, you will have an overview of the West Lake.

 

With tea pavilions scattering here and there in the tea mountains, the Dragon Well Tea Plantation is really a comfortable place for relaxing and enjoying tea among the lush tea trees. Here you can pick tea leaves under the instruction of locals. At a teahouse,  you will try some emperors tea and the quick science experiment in explaining the benefits of drinking green tea!

 

At noon, you can have lunch at a tea farmer’s restaurant where chicken are amazing. Plus, the ‘real’ bamboo shoots also deserve to have a try. 

 

If you’re keen on going to garden centers for a cup of tea, this is definitely the best place in Hangzhou. Book Hangzhou Tours now and by the way now is the best season to admire summer lotuses of the West Lake.

Voted the happiest city in China by Oriental Outlook Magazine several years running, Hangzhou is China’s leisure capital. Everyone knows that Hangzhou is an earthly heaven, but fewer people notice its beauty in the night. The West lake, the hottest landmark of Hangzhou is certainly not to be missed. Especially in such hot summer days, having a cool night tour around the West lake is definitely a wise choice!

The night West Lake returns to her innocence from the day’s pomp and shows her peace, elegance and romance. To make a night tour around the West lake, you can choose public bicycles as well as taking a boat or walking. It is very popular to take a bicycle tour around the lake. You can see parents riding with their children or a couple riding together. It’s so sweet and romantic! No matter you are traveling alone or with your friends or families, riding will give you much freedom and convenience to enjoy a casual tour and stop at any attraction that interests you.

There are three places most visited by foreign tourists in Hangzhou—bars on Nanshan Road, the Musical Fountain and the Impression West Lake Show. Nanshan Road bristles with all kinds of night bars and tea bars with different charms. Strolling on the road is like wandering in an Europe city. The breathtaking musical fountain looks like a girl dancing ballet in a colorful dress and it attracts many visitors from home and abroad. Staged entirely upon the lake itself, the Impression West Lake Show, directed by Zhang Yimou (who directed the opening ceremony of 2008 Olympic Games), is a grand open-air show of light, music, dance and theatrics in the night. West Lake depicted its intoxicating beauty by its natural scenery as well as its romantic legends which the show is the very media that brings the audience into the mixed wonders of West Lake’s natural and cultural beauties.

Take your package and have a romantic Hangzhou tour! Enjoy the beauty of the West Lake in moonlight!
