West Lake (西湖)

A UNESCO World Heritage site since 2011, Hangzhou's premier tourist attraction, West Lake and its surrounding gardens, hills, rockeries, temples, pagodas and parks have for centuries inspired poets, officials and tourists with their beauty. This beauty pulls an estimated 12 million domestic tourists and half a million foreign tourists annually making it—and, consequentially, Hangzhou—one of China's most tourist-heavy locales.

Its placid waters and lush tree-lined shores, praised by emperors and poets alike, have been the setting of many famous events in Chinese literature and history. Board a vessel and cruise across the lake to view famous sights like Three Pools Mirroring the Moon, the Bai and Su Causeways and Solitary Hill. Flower Harbor Park, located next to Su Causeway, houses many of Hangzhou's most well known attractions, including Red Carp Pond and Peony Garden.

Lingyin Temple (灵隐寺)

The Lingyin Temple, which literally means "where the divine rest in seclusion," has long been considered one of the ten most famous Buddhist temples in China. Originally founded in AD 326, Lingyin Temple has been rebuilt no less than 16 times. Listen as your guide discusses its pagodas and pavilions and introduces you to some of the 470 stone carvings of Buddhist figures on Feilai Peak, which date back to the 10th to 14th centuries.

Feilai Peak (飞来峰)

The Feilai Peak, 209 m (686 ft) tall, is a limestone mountain which is distinct from the sandstone peaks around it. Famous for its Buddhist grottoes and caves, the mountain also offers wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. Large stones scattered along the peak are said to resemble animals like a flying dragon, a running elephant, a crouching tiger, and a fleeing monkey.

Meijiawu Tea Village (梅家坞)

Meijiawu Tea Village is considered one of the most important Longjing tea productions in China where you can learn more about their special tea culture. At the Tea House, you may learn how to make the Longjing Tea including tea leaves picking, frying and tasting.

Southern Song Dynasty Guan Kiln Museum (南宋官窑博物馆)

Southern Song Dynasty Guan Kiln Museum was firstly constructed to be a ceramic themed museum relying on the ancient relic - the famous Jiaotanxia Southern Song Imperial Kiln Relic. Now the museum displays the products of the official kilns of Southern Song Dynasty, highlighting their charm and delicate beauty. It has been praised as the Civilized Museum of Zhejiang Province and the first group of Provincial Education Base of Patriotism.

Hefang Street (河坊街)

A bustling center of commerce since the Song Dynasty, this pedestrian street is lined with shops and restaurants occupying traditional Ming-and-Qing-style buildings and stalls selling various souvenirs.
