West lake and its surroundings are sooo beautiful. Everywhere green. Loved the place and dint feel like coming back
This Hangzhou highlights tour is a great way to see more peaceful, natural parts of China. Skip the crowds and busy urban areas, and instead have a guide to take you to areas of natural beauty, such as West Lake, Guo’s Garden, Longjing Green Tree Plantation, and Yungi Valley. A hassle-free day with nothing to organize as round-trip transport, lunch, a boat trip, and transport is included.
Your tour begins with a pickup from your hotel in central Hangzhou/Hangzhou Railway Station. You’ll travel in an air-conditioned vehicle, and if you have specific interests, your guide can adapt the schedule to suit your needs. First stop is a UNESCO World Heritage Site—West Lake. You’ll enjoy a boat ride, and then visit Guo’s Garden (Villa), which has a backdrop of tea houses and pavilions.
Lunchtime is a highlight—you’ll visit a tea farmer’s house and learn how to cook local delicacies. Next up is Longjing Green Tea Plantation and Village, which is famous for being the origin of Longjing green tea. After tasting some, you’ll visit a bamboo-lined path in Yunqi. The last stop of the day is Qinghefang Old Street. You’ll learn about Old Hangzhou, see historic buildings, and go shopping. The day ends with a return trip back to your start point.
