What to Expect
Pick up service is arranged at your Shanghai downtown hotel. Drive you to Shanghai train station to catch the train to Hangzhou. Upon arrival, you'll start the tour directly.

With your personal tour guide, you will visit the famous Hangzhou West Lake, one of world UNESCO Sites. The best way to visit the lake is by boat. We special arrange a private boat for you since the public tourist boat is very crowded and noisy, sail to the secret parts of the West Lake only known by local people. Taking a Private Boat Sailing on the picturesque West Lake is an enjoyable and relaxing way to appreciate the beautiful scenery with its islands, causeways, temples, pagodas and ornamental planting.

After that, you will visit the Guo's Villa (Guo Zhuang). It is the best existing traditional private residence in Hangzhou, built in late Qing Dynasty. With a mountain in the back and the west lake in the front, the garden is known as "Number One Garden of the West Lake" thanks to its tranquil environment, well-preserved buildings, and tasteful landscaping layout.

Next, pay a visit to Linying Temple. As the largest of several temples in Hangzhou, with its long history and charming scenery, Lingyin Temple attracts thousands of visitors and Buddhist faithful every day. There are always long lines in front of the ticket office, we have our own way to book the ticket to let you skip the line and head straight inside with your guide.

After the temple, drive you to the Tea village in the mountain side and enjoy your lunch at a local tea farmer's house that popular with the local people to stay away from the tourists' meals, moreover, you'll have chance to talk with tea farmers and know the local life of Hangzhou.

After lunch, you can take a short walk in the tea village and taste a cup of real Longjing Green Tea. As an important and the largest production base of Longjing Tea in Hangzhou, Meijiawu Tea Village is the best place for sightseeing, combining farmhouses and tea culture for locals, it is features Quiet, relaxing and refreshing place, full of tea plantation.

The last stop for the tour is Cheng Huang Pavilion where you can get a whole view of West Lake. Whenever you come into the city at night from the East, the first thing you can see off in the distance is this place: It's the most noticeable building in the Hangzhou skyline.

After the tour, drive you to Hangzhou train station and return Shanghai by train. You will be taken back to your hotel once you arrived in Shanghai.
