About Hangzhou

Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang Province in the southeast of China. It is located close to Shanghai and is at the southern end of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal (World Heritage). Hangzhou was the birthplace of the Liangzhu Culture dated to about 4,000 to 5,000 years ago, and was one of the seven ancient capitals of China. Hangzhou has also been known as the “land of silk and tea,” with theme museums like China Silk Museum, China Tea Museum and Museum of Liangzhu Culture Ruins. Described as “the finest and most splendid city in the world” by the famous Italian traveller Marco Polo, Hangzhou is renowned for the natural beauty and charm of the West Lake (World Heritage) and the picturesque landscapes of Thousand-Islet Lake. Hosting the headquarters of many hi-tech companies including Alibaba, the world’s leading e-commerce group, Hangzhou has grown into a hi-tech metropolis, better known as China’s “Silicon Valley.” As a modern city, Hangzhou also has many delightful shopping centers and leisure facilities.
