Hangzhou seeks to woo international visitors with new campaign

When Marco Polo visited 800 years ago, he declared it “the finest and most splendid city in the world.

The city is located on West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Grand Canal, the world’s oldest and longest man-made canal, begins at Hangzhou and ends at Beijing and incorporates 132 heritage sites (seven of which are in Hangzhou).

The city has a well-known heritage in the production of fine porcelain, silk and tea, and tourists may visit museums dedicated to each and learn how these skills have impacted civilization generally.

Hangzhou is at the centre of stunning natural landscape with the West Lake encompassed on three sides by hills.

The lake, a fusion of culture and nature, has inspired famous poets, scholars and artists since the 9th century.

Ten scenic sites have been given poetic names such as Autumn Moon, Twin Peaks Piercing the Clouds, etc.

There are two causeways and three islands with picturesque pagodas, pavilions, lush gardens and historic temples.

Hangzhou is the political, historical and cultural centre of Zhejiang Province on the southeast coast of China, only 45 minutes from Shanghai on the bullet train.

To facilitate connectivity within the city, use of bicycles is encouraged as a means of transportation and may be rented by the hour.
