What to Expect
Our local hangzhou tour guide will pick you up at your hotel lobby in Hangzhou or the Hangzhou train station with a welcome signage.

First, visit the

Mantou Mountain Community, lies at the foot of Phoenix Mountain and features a serene and elegant environment. The community is characterized with old-style Hangzhou residential houses, little bamboo chairs lying around in front of the houses and residents sitting on their doorsteps chatting. It really is an ideal place to experience the "old" Hangzhou.

Later, visit the

Wansong Academy is also called Liangzhu (Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai) Academy and is said to be the place where Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai (the hero and heroine from the famous Chinese legend, the Butterfly Lovers) fell in love during their three years of studying together. As Wansong Academy witnessed the love of the Butterfly Lovers, the place has now become a blind date venue, and the annual blind date gathering since 2005 has made Wansong Academy a romantic place rather than a solemn old academy.

Here, you can stroll through

Bamboo Forests and Reeds, or listen to the music played by the breeze in one of the thatched pavilions.

After lunch, drive to Three Temples at Tianzhu.In addition to Lingyin Temple, to pray, local Hangzhou people would also choose Three Temples at Tianzhu. Three Temples at Tianzhu refers to Upper Tianzhu – Faxi Temple, Middle Tianzhu – Fajing Temple and Lower Tianzhu – Fajing Temple. The three temples are situated between Tianzhu Mountain and Lingyin Temple and without a constant stream of tourists, they are ideal places to pray.

The last stop is the

Nine Creeks Meandering through a Misty Forest. If you like to walk, then try Nine Creeks Meandering through a Misty Forest. Nine Creeks Meandering through a Misty Forest, also called Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies, lies at the foot of the western mountain group of the West Lake. The name of “Nine Creeks Meandering through a Misty Forest” stems from the scene of mist and fog rolling up from the forest in nearby Bajue Mountain after rain.

Drive you back to your hotel in Hangzhou or the Hangzhou Train Station and your tour ends.
