Hangzhou after the G20

An day trip to charming Hangzhou Hangzhou is one of the most famous Chinese cities, known for being sort of enchanting and very recently, the meeting point for the G20 summit. From ancient times the emperors used to spend the summers in this place, famous for its lakes, scenery, tea and subtle cuisine. For the G20 the host went all in with the preparations and made the already cozy city especially welcoming to the foreign dignitaries, while trying to give the locals a break (and plenty of incentive’s to take a holiday out of town).

A perfect day in Hangzhou: the city of living poetry

Once the capital of the Southern Song Dynasty and now the capital of the most thriving economic region of China, Hangzhou definitely merits a visit. Located only 100km from Shanghai, Hangzhou is easily accessible by the high-speed train and now has its own international airport and a growing network of metro lines. Whether you enjoy shopping in the bustling city centre, savouring the taste of delicious local food and West lake green tea at the tea fields or quiet walks in the hidden lagoons behind the famous West Lake, this city has something for everyone. I lived in this city for two years as an international student at a prestigious local university, Zhejiang University. There are so many things to do and see in the city and I loved living there; but if you only have one day, this is what I would recommend you do:
