When summer hits Hangzhou many locals, to avoid the stifling heat, escape to nearby hills, caves and rivers. However, instead of fleeing the city why not take a look at this special designed Hangzhou day trip including Hangzhou’s hottest things to do this summer. 

Our local hangzhou tour guide will pick you up at your hotel lobby in Hangzhou or the Hangzhou train station with a welcome sign" Hangzhou Private Tour", then starts the Hangzhou day trip as below:

First, visit the Breeze-Ruffled Lotus at Quyuan Garden. It is in the summer that the city’s eye-catching lotus flowers come into full bloom around the West Lake. Their beauty has been praised by poets and painters during the past millennium and the best place in which to view them is at Quyuan Garden where you will also see the Nine Bent Bridge zigzagging its way along a sea of lotus blossom. The scene of green leaves and pinkish-red flowers set against a backdrop of verdant rolling hills evokes an ancient world adorned by Chinese ruling elites and scholars. This scene heralded  as Breeze-Ruffled Lotus at Quyuan Garden, is one of the Top Ten Views of the West Lake. In such a poetic and picturesque environment you can capture many a moment and with the air saturated with aromatic fragrances romantic sensations will easily be triggered. Time your visit well either during the morning or at dawn to avoid crowds of tourists and of course the summer heat.

Later, drive to the Hangzhou Botanical Garden. One of the best in China, Hangzhou Botanical Garden stretches from the Jade Spring Park to Lingyin Temple. It covers an area of 247 hectares. The mild weather, ample rainfall, and unspoilt natural conditions make it an ideal cradle for plant introduction and acclimatization. Holiday-makers love the spot because of its unique settings, refreshing air, serene surroundings and beautiful wooded environment. The garden is divided into two main sections: the research section and the pleasure gardens. The research section is where the cultivation of plants and protection of the environment are being studied. The pleasure gardens are divided into gardens including the Botany Classification Garden, Botany Appreciation Garden, Bamboo Garden, Garden of Economic Plants, Plant Resources Museum, and the Medicinal Garden. 

Next, walk around Yuhu Bay. Yuhu bay is located at the west of West Lake and whilst it is like the West Lake, it benefits from having fewer tourists. You can take the No. 52 Bus for two or three stops from Quyuan Garden to Yuhu Bay and when you are there you can imagine you can delve deep into the jungle of Yuhu bay, whilst the outside world passes you by.

Hidden in the western foot of Wutai Hill in the West Lake Scenic Area, this is a wonderful place to find respite from the summer day.Renowned for its dense bamboo forest, the scenery "Bamboo-lined Path at Yunqi" ranks first in the new ‘Top Ten Views of West Lake”

After lunch, drive to the Bamboo-Lined Path at Yunqi. Paved with slab stones in the middle and lined with bizarre rocks on both sides, the present path is a reproduction of the original path of the Qing Dynasty. It’s rumored that during the 17th to the early 20th century, the middle part of the path was reserved for Emperor Kangxi and Emperor Qianlong only, and anyone who dared to step beyond the dividing line would be punished by lashing, forced labor, or even execution.   Besides dense bamboo grooves, weatherworn pavilions and winding trails, the Bamboo-Lined Path at Yunqi is also blessed with countless ancient trees over 1000 years old.   In a word, Bamboo-Lined Path at Yunqi is an ultimate getaway into nature. The luxuriant bamboo forests, crystal-clear streams, elegant pavilions and pagodas, and a wealth of ancient trees will reward you with a peaceful mind, romantic memory and purified heart and soul.Even on the hottest of summer days, Yunqi manages to provide good shade and comfort to the weariest.

Following on, Nine Creeks Meandering Through a Misty Forest. Around the mountains surrounding West Lake, nine creeks snaking along numerous gullies form one rivulet that passes through a misty forest and ultimately joins the Qiangtang River. Together the brooks are referred to as the ‘Nine Creeks Meandering through a Misty Forest’. Also known as ‘Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies’, the scenic area features a stretch of rough cobblestone path lined by mountains, verdant tea plantations on either side of the road, gurgling creeks and chirping birds. With the stream cutting across the cobblestone path multiple times, taking one’s shoes off to enjoy the fun of walking barefoot across cool stone brings great pleasure.

After dinner, enjoy the impression westlake show. Hangzhou, Living Poetry The G20 Summit has let the world know about Hangzhou, and through a brilliant performance on the water - Most Memorable Is Hangzhou - audiences have been more than amazed. The “Tourism Edition” of Most Memorable Is Hangzhou reserves more than 70% of the theatrical elements of the one shown at the summit. The most popular parts like Swan Lake and Unforgettable Jasmine will be in original presentation. The performance takes the surface of the lake as its stage and applies high-tech sound and light technology to render its most memorable scenes. Numerous actors interpret the plots and reproduce the beauty of Hangzhou and its folklore.
