Exploring China part 3

10/01/2016

Part three of ‘Exploring China.’ Clearly, I’m not very creative with titles – which I shall work on this year. Anyway, this is yet another section of exploring this giant land called China.

My flatmate and I went to a city called Hangzhou (‘zh’ is a ‘j’ sound – hangjoe) which is the capital of Zhejiang province – the province I live in. Though I’ve been here for 18 months, I never actually visited this city until last week. Slap on the wrist for being so lazy or simply passing this gem on the train only thinking about Shanghai.

Hangzhou is known for its natural scenery, the West Lake being the city’s most popular attraction; its silk, though it’s not exclusive to this area, it’s pretty easy to find shops which sells good quality silk scarves, clothing, sheets etc; Longjing tea (green tea) comes from the village Longjing near Hangzhou. Fresh tea leaves can be purchased from local shops.

My flatmate and I went to explore the West Lake. I had never been before and took the opportunity to go for the day. Here’s what I managed to capture!
