Let the mention of China corrupt your mind with images of touristy places, overpriced hotels, overstuffed roads - and then when you set foot on the lands of Hangzhou, the capital of the Zhejiang Province, these myths will shatter one by one! Not only this charming city is ridiculously gorgeous (not to mention less touristy!), but also visiting Hangzhou is one experience you can compare with no other. No wonder the Venetian merchant and the medieval traveler, Marco Polo, proclaimed Hangzhou as ‘The city of Heaven’. A Hangzhou tour, and you will whole-heartedly agree with him.

With about 60 cultural relic sites and numerous attractions of natural beauty, Hangzhou has been attracting tourists from all parts of the world.

Plan your trip during fall (September – November) or around spring (March-May) which are the best times to visit Hangzhou and witness the city in its full glory!

Don’t blame us if these gorgeous pictures of Hangzhou compel you to book your flight ticket right away!
