Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang Province in east China. With its famous natural beauty and cultural heritages, Hangzhou is well known as one of China's most important tourist venues.
This is the famous "West Lake" in Hangzhou. It is known to visitors for its scenic beauty as well as the moving legend which is said to have taken place there.
Misty mountains shrouded the rain;
Plain or gaily decked out like Xizi;
West Lake is always alluring."
These are the words composed by the famous Song Dynasty poet Su Dongpo (960-1127) when he compared the West Lake to Xi Zi, the most beautiful woman in ancient China. These poetic sentiments leave one in no doubt of the glory of the scenery that inspired them.
At the second day of the journey, in the morning we went to the Dragon Well Tea House to taste the world famous green tea. Dragon Well Tea is favored by both local residents and foreigners because of its four unique wonders - emerald green color, aromatic flavor, sweet taste and beautiful appearance.
