Hangzhou – Intro

Longjing Tea, Hangzhou

Longjing Tea, Hangzhou

This weekend I traveled to Hangzhou, capital of the Zhejiang Province. Hangzhou is known, among many things, for its long leaf tea, Longjing.

Xi Hu (West Lake)

Xi Hu (West Lake)

The city’s famous two-square-mile West Lake, Xi Hu, is surrounded by cultural and historic sites. An entire trip to Hangzhou can be spent just at the lake. Pedestrian paths line the lake’s perimeter and consist of many beautiful stone bridges, such as the one pictured above. Leifeng Pagoda is in the background.
