This trip is one-day sightseeing experience in Hangzhou, to two tourist destinations in downtown area – West Lake Scenic Area and Longjing Green Tea Plantation. Due to the daytime tour, there is no arrangement for accommodation. And the meals during the travel will be recommended by the tour guide, and you just select your favorite one. Or, just tell the tour guide what you want to eat, and let him or her arrange for you.
In the morning, after breakfast, you will meet your tour guide at the lobby, and then move to West Lake Scenic Area, firstly we have a walk along the Bai Causeway to enjoy the beauty of spring through the natural sights mixed with the cultural heritage sites. The Bai Causeway inclusive of the Broken Bridge is the best place to pre-enjoy the landscapes of the willows and peach trees. The light green among the large area of the yellow is so eye-catching and full of vitality. Xiling Yinshe or Xiling Society of Seal Arts in this time always has its first spring exhibition every year, and the first rarities auction meeting. If you prefer collecting them, go there with us. Zhejiang Museum in spring is tranquil like its neighbor – Sun Yat-sen Park, or Zhongshan Park, standing over here like a shy and elegant girl, a spring girl full of signals of life, happiness and inspiration. Spring may be firstly luckily met in the Solitary Hill, or just traveling in the Gushan Park. Just imagine this time – in this peaceful park, a young lady wearing the spring costume is wandering, reading, smiling and singing. That is spring, isn’t it?
Going across the Xiling Bridge, we will rent a bike to have a springtime bicycling trip along the Su Causeway and Yanggong Causeway. A route full of willow’s withies, light greens waving in the mild and warm breeze, and the girls are giggling and looking at you. That is really the springtime, and they become the beautiful spring landscape in your eyes, when you are the focus of theirs. Yanggong Causeway is the best route in Hangzhou to enjoy the cozy cycling trip. Just enjoy your happy time along this west broad way ending with Quyuan Fenghe Scenic Spot.
In the afternoon, we go to Longjing Tea Plantation, to see the first tender shoot of the new green tea. In March and April, it is the best time to see the tea we name it Mingqian Tea, literally translated to be The Green Tea before Qingming Festival, which is also the seasonal tea with the highest price all the year. The whole tea plantation renews itself after a long cold winter, and the new bud dotted with the light, fresh and bright green have you a refreshing feeling. If possible, help the local tea farmers to pick the first round new tea, and enjoy the local tea farmers’ tea-making performance, and taste the green tea. That will be an unforgettable springtime experience in Hangzhou.
