Hangzhou the capital of Zhejiang Province, is located by the Qiantang River at the Southern end of the Grand Canal.  As one of the most renowned and prosperous cities of China for much of the last 1,000 years, Hangzhou is also well-known for its beautiful natural scenery, with the West Lake as the most well-known location. The Venetian Marco Polo supposedly visited Hangzhou in the late 13th century.

Full day relaxing tour that covers the visit to West Lake, Lingyin Temple, Hu Qingyu Traditional Pharmacy and China  Tea Museum.

The West Lake Enclosed by the hills on three sides, the West  Lake mirrors the surrounding landscape to form a panorama of great beauty. The lake was originally part of the Qitang River until its outlet became silted up. It is now 15km in circumference with an average depth of 1.8 meters.


The Lingyin Temple is regarded as one of the four temples by the side of the West Lake.  The main hall, 33.6 meters high, is one ofChinatallest single-story buildings, further distinguished by double eaves. Within, a statue of Sakyamuni, carved out of 24 pieces of camphor wood and gilded with 104 ounces of gold, stands an impressive 19.6 meters high.


Hu Qingyu Traditional Pharmacy . Built in 1874 by Hu Xueyan, a "red-top official merchant", the Huqingyu Traditional Pharmacy is worth mentioning that Huqingyu Drugstore fully carried out the medicine-making techniques and industry standards stated in the Prescriptions of the Bureau of Taiping People's Welfare Pharmacy drafted by the authorities of the Southern Song Dynasty. It is also fair to say that Hangzhou is the origin of "ancient Chinese pharmacopoeia" and Hu Qingyu Drugstore is an inheritor of the great tradition.



Wuzhen Water Townis an old water town with the distance around 200 kilometers from Shanghai. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful water towns in China.The flat houses,mainly with gray bricks had been built along the river over hundreds of years by successive generations. You will have a chance to take a Chinese traditional wooden boat rowing over the water, going zigzag through the small bridges one after another to find the local people playing cards and tasting tea relaxedly in Tea Stand by the side of the water. It is a great place to wander around to find the ancient docks, waterside pavilions and corridors stretching for miles, which present a typical and harmonic atmosphere to the water town in South of China.
