Hangzhou - Heaven on Earth Day Trip from Shanghai
Travel to Hangzhou, a city rich in history and spectacular scenery on this day trip from Shanghai. Cruise on Hangzhou's famous West Lake and take in the stunning views that have inspired poets and artists for centuries. Also visit the Six Harmonies Pagoda, a magnificent example of ancient Chinese architecture. You'll come to appreciate why Marco Polo once referred to Hangzhou as 'the most beautiful and magnificent city in the world'.
Hangzhou is a city rich with history and culture, spanning back over 2000 years. It made a name for itself in the Seventh Century, when the Grand Canal, the world's longest canal opened and linked Hangzhou to Beijing and other centers of trade. The South Song Dynasty (A.D. 1127-1279) helped make Hangzhou famous when the imperial family settled here early in the 12th century.
On arrival to Hangzhou, your first stop is Six Harmonies Pagoda, also know as Liuhe Pagoda. Overlooking the Qiantang River, this massive structure is a masterpiece of ancient Chinese architecture. Visit the museum that exhibits the various ancient Chinese pagoda styles. Continue to Meijiawu Tea Village for a traditional tea ceremony and an insight into its significance in Chinese culture.
After lunch, cruise across West Lake to experience peace and serenity like no place else in China. Your cruise ends at Flower Harbor where you can walk along on Su Causeway and feed the fish in the Red Fish Pond to pray for the good luck.
Finally, experience nature and visit '9 Creeks and 18 Gullies'. Enjoy a lovely walk amongst this peaceful environment. There are some quaint places to stop off along the way too, including a lagoon and a small pavilion which has been converted into a great tea and snack hous
