Our pick up sign" Hangzhou Private Tour"
Firstly, spend the peaceful and less-crowded morning time to visit the iconic and World Heritage site of Hangzhou – the picturesque West Lake(Boat ride is included). Just as the famous traveler Marco Polo did and wrote: “A voyage on this lake offers more refreshment and pleasure than any other experience on earth”, you will start with a 45-minute leisure cruise to enjoy the tranquil lake views as well as the ancient pagodas, traditional arched bridges, tree-lined walkways, beautiful hills, green islands and lush gardens.
After that, visit the Fish Viewing at the Flower Pond(Huagang Park). This spot is located at the southern end of Su Causeway. A clean stream flows from Huajia Hill to join West Lake here, and many flowers grow where the fresh water flows in, so it called "Flowery Harbor". This area now has been made into a 22 hectare (54 acre) park with many varieties of trees and flowers, featuring a peony garden which blooms in April and a goldfish pond which is the famous site for viewing fish.
Continue your visit to the Guo Garden: Completed in 1861, this elegant garden villa was built as a private retreat for a wealthy Qing Dynasty silk merchant. Guo's Villa is a fine example of Chinese aesthetics in which the manmade and natural blend in harmonious balance.The Villa opened to the public in 1991, after being restored. It faces Spring Dawn, by the Sudi Causeway which crosses the West Lake, and has a distant view of the serene Southern Screen Hill and the Baochu Pagoda. The villa has two sections (1) Living in Quietness, where the owner lived (2) the Sky in the Mirror garden, with a pond surrounded by roofed corridors (lang), bridges, rockwork, trees and flowers.
Lunch at local restaurant to try the local delicacies (Our local tour guide will give you the best recommendation)
Later, move to the Meijiawu Tea Plantation & Village: Drogon Well Tea, also known as Longjing tea, is a variety of roasted green tea from Hangzhou where it is produced mostly by hand and has been renowned for its high quality, earning the China Famous Tea title. Meijiawu Tea village is seated at the hinterland of West Lake Park and it boasts the most important Dragon tea production basis. Here you are in an original natural environment, just relax your feelings and enjoy the special tea culture, taste the fragrant tea while appreciating the beautiful village scenery. And our guide or Tea Farmer will show you how to pick the leaves, how to fry the leaves and how to drink the best tea in China.
The last stop for today is the Lingyin Temple & Peak Flying From Afar: Lingyin temple, commonly translated as "Temple of the Soul's Retreat" is one of the largest and wealthiest temples in China. It was originally founded in 326 AD, but has been rebuilt no less than sixteen times since then. Lingyin Temple is one of the ten most famous ancient Buddhist temples in China. It also houses various Buddhist literature and treasures situated in front of the Temple, and is famous for its more than 470 stone carvings of Buddhist figures, which dated from the 10th to 14th centuries.
Drive you back to your hotel.
After breakfast.Take a boat ride on the grand canal from the Wharf of Qiaoxi. Enjoy the scenery along the Grand Canal on a ship and listen to the introduction of the canal by a guide. The Grand Canal is the second biggest draw of Hangzhou after West Lake. Now that it has been successfully inscribed in the list of UNESCO Heritage Sites, the Grand Canal becomes even more popular among foreign friends. No doubt that food streets along the Grand Canal benefit a lot from the event, including Dadou Road. Still, it cannot be denied that Dadou Road possesses its own appeal and truly deserves the affection.
Later, drive to Chenghuang Pavilion(or City God pavilion),the landmark of Grand View of Wu Hill, one of the Eighteen Classic Views of West Lake Scenic Area. Wu Hill also called Chenghuang Hill. It is very convenient for tourist to view the Heavenly Wind over Wu Hill, one of Ten New Scenes of the West Lake. Located on the top of the Wu Hill in Hangzhou, Chenghuang Pavilion is an optimum spot for people to get a bird eye view of Hangzhou. It is an important part of the West Lake Resort and a showplace for the splendid history, culture and folk customs of Hangzhou.
Have your Lunch at the restaurant popular with the local people to stay away from the tourists' meals.(In china, do not go to the tourists's restaurants when you are on a tour. You shold go to the right place to have the meals, then you are in real china )
Next, drive to The Song Dynasty Imperial Street: Has been renamed Zhongshanlu Beiduan, but still leads to the Palace of the Northern Song dynasty (960-1127AD). The road that stretches 400 meters (1,310ft) is lined with snack bars that offer local delicacies and shops that sell antiques, embroidered items and silks among others.
Move on to the Hu Qingyu Tang Traditional Chinese Medicine Museum to explore the mysterious and interesting system of traditional Chinese pharmacy. The museum is based on a gorgeous architectural compound of an old pharmacy shop whose owner was one of the wealthiest businessmen in late Qing Dynasty （1644-1911）. You’ll have your eyes wide open at the display of a myriad of valuable Chinese herbal materials and the hand-operated process by skilled pharmaceutical workers.
The last stop is the Former Residence of Hu Xueyan.Situated in downtown Hangzhou, the Former Residence of Hu Xueyan is a place to peek into the aristocracy of Hangzhou’s richest merchant, hailing from the Qing Dynasty. It is a maze of towers, gardens, pavilions, terraces, arched bridges, palatial halls and serene living quarters. Several hours spent here will bestow you with cherished memories of ancient Chinese culture manifested by its stunning architecture, philosophy and bewildering folklore customs, which are still alive.
Drive you back to the Hangzhou Train Station or the Hangzhou Airport and your Hangzhou Tour ends.
