What to Expect
When you book, itemize any special interests you may have—architecture, history, culture, tea, silk, or rural life—so your guide can prepare an itinerary to suit your needs. On the day, greet them either at the train station or your hotel before you explore the city by climate-controlled private vehicle. The exact itinerary will vary according to your interests, but most will include a boat ride and landscape viewing on UNESCO-listed West Lake (Xi Hu), fourth-century Lingyin Temple, a walk in the tea fields, a Dragon Well (Longjing) tea tasting, and a visit to one of Hangzhou’s historic shopping streets.
