Hangzhou Travel Guide
Hangzhou, the capital of China’s Zhejiang province, is the southern terminus of the ancient Grand Canal waterway, which originates in Beijing. Its West Lake, celebrated by poets and artists since the 9th century, encompasses islands (reachable by boat), temples, pavilions, gardens and arched bridges. On its south bank is 5-story Leifeng Pagoda, a modern reconstruction of a structure built in 975 A.D.
West of the lake in the Wulin Mountains, Lingyin Temple (or Temple of Soul’s Retreat) is a complex featuring a 25m-high gilded Buddha in its Grand Hall. On the surrounding grounds, the limestone grottoes of Feilai Peak display rock carvings from as early as the 10th century, including a famous Laughing Buddha. A trail ascends North Peak Mountain, which is topped by the 1,600-year-old Lingshun Temple (or Temple of Wealth). The area is known for its tea and silk, with national tea and silk museums. Southwest of town, Longjing (Dragon Well) green tea leaves grow on terraces around Longjing village.
Famed for its natural scenery, Hangzhou and its West Lake have been immortalized by countless poets and artists. The city was the capital of the Southern Song Dynasty from 1127 until the Mongol invasion of 1276. The city’s population is estimated to have been as high as one million in those days, making it the largest city in the world at the time. Even Marco Polo claimed to have passed through, calling it beyond dispute the finest and the noblest in the world. The West Lake Cultural Landscape has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2011.
With the gradual silting up of its harbor, much of the city’s trade and industry passed north to nearby Shanghai, but the city still has a bustling population of 8.7 million and ranks as one of China‘s most popular tourist attractions.
