Hangzhou Travel Guide: 625 reviews and 1,864 photos

Hangzhou is a large modern city located near the eastern coast of China, 3 hours drive west of Shanghai. The city is filled with ancient Chinese history surrounding the mystical beauty, West Lake.

Here is the famed West Lake of Hangzhou. Locals say that when the lake is shrouded with fog, it is more mystical and thus, more beautiful. Many bridges and pagodas dot the surrounding hillsides.

Dragon Well Tea is famous in Hangzhou due to its climate. You can purchase the tea leaves in steel tins.
