Hangzhou Tour

Hangzhou locationLocated at China's southeast coast, Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang Province. This anciant Imperial capital, the very noble and magnificent city that seemed to Marco Polo an image of paradise, has lost almost all its fine monuments. The most beautiful part, however, the enchanting shores of the West Lake (Xihu), still remains. The lakeside scenery of Hangzhou is possibly more in harmony with the Chinese character than any other type of countryside, or rather with the yin, the water-born side of that character, and all that it implies in terms of fluidity, of subtlety, of the fine-drawn - for, in the last resort, the charm of the place defies definition. The West Lake is most beautiful in the spring and by moonlight. Hangzhou is full of poetry simply because two of the greatest Chinese poets, Baijuyi and Su Dongpo, who briefly held the office of governor, left their mark in the form of embankments and bridges, like a brushstroke on the waters, bringing to these skeletons flesh, breath and spirit1 with their thick strokes and upstrokes, or the broken stroke where the causeway curves into the arch of a bridge. This is an extraordinary transposition of the art of cun2 onto the surface of the waters. To appreciate the Xihu, you must look at it not as a tourist but as a poet or an artist. The West Lake is at its most beautiful in September, when the cannas are in flower, or in October, or perhaps on certain days during the summer, when the scenery is made even more fluid by the heat haze that blurs the shorelines and gives them the appearance of a web of lace that frays at the treetops. The city (which has been almost entirely rebuilt since 1949), is selfeffacing, allowing you to enjoy the water, the mist, the wind, the changing patterns formed on the lake by the clouds and the sun and the attractive vegetation.

A saying that first appeared under the Southern Song (1127-1276) still proclaims today that "In heaven there is paradise, on Earth, there are Suzhou and Hangzhou." It is on the banks of the West Lake and on its waters that you must look for this paradise with its clumps of flowers and trees, its parks with their sparkling pools, its pavilions and its scarlet temples.
