... police for biking on the wrong path. After the lake, I decided I'd try and visit a tea village. What ensued was my first real travel mess up of the trip. I picked up a tourist bus, but either took it in the wrong direction or missed my stop, which I only realized when I got to the terminus. By the time I was heading in the right direction (possibly) stuff was closing...but I did get to see bamboo forest and fields of tea...from the ...
Took the fast train of 300kph to Hangzhou, west of Shanghai. A smaller city of nearly 9 million people with a much more laid back and friendly atmosphere. Pretty trees, a beautiful lake and everyone out walking with their kids as it is school ...

We then went to Hongcun, which is like a tourist village in Anhui Province near the famous Yellow Mountain. Shanghai was fun, we went to a lovely rooftop bar, and looked at some of the popular tourist streets. It is hard to get my head around the fact that more people live there than in the entire ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsRedstar Culture Hotel Hangzhou
You really do get the culture of staying in a Chinese Hotel when you stay here. The staff were as helpful as they could be, the room was clean however I am not used to the smell of cigarettes everywhere in the hotel. Thankfully my room did not smell to much, however there was an ashtray on the table, on the toilet roll holder and next to the bed. It is a long walk from the main West Lake however the reason I chose the hotel was its location to the Hangzhou train station
