Our pick up sign" Hangzhou Private Tour"
First, visit the Southern Song Imperial Street, a main avenue that was paved in the Southern Song Dynasty and according to documentary records, more than 10,000 flagstones were used. The street stretches from the intersection of Wansong Mountain and Phoenix Hill Road, passing through Zhongshan Road M. and N., to the intersection of Fengqi Road and Wulin Road. With a length of 4185 meters, it was once the central axis of Lin’an city in the Southern Song Dynasty. It was also the specific road for emperors to worship ancestors. Here, there are 13 historical and cultural relics and buildings of which The Phoenix Temple is a key national cultural relic protection unit.
Next, visit General Yue Fei's Mausoleum, general Yue Fei (1103–1142), widely admired by many, was a patriotic national hero of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127–1279). However, he was framed by the devious Prime Minister—Qin Hui (秦桧,1090-1155) and murdered for crimes he didn’t commit. In 1163, he was proved to be innocent and his corpse was reburied at the present site.
General Yue Fei's Mausoleum is located at the southern foot of Qixia Hill (栖霞山), north of Su Causeway (苏堤). Whenever the sun sets, colorful clouds rest over the tomb of General Yue Fei, which is marvellous to see. Yue Yun (岳雲, 1119-1142), Yue Fei's eldest son, who was executed together with his father is also buried here. At the gate to the tomb yard are four cast iron statues: Qin Hui and his wife on one side, and Moqi Xie (万俟卨), a court official, and Zhang Jun (张俊), a general, on the other. These four traitors are displayed kneeling down in pairs, with their hands tied behind their backs, on whom visitors cast despising glances. As the couplet that flanks the gate aptly puts it:
the green hill is fortunate to be the burial ground of a loyal general, (青山有幸埋忠骨)
The white iron was innocent to be cast into the statues of traitors. (白铁无辜铸佞臣)
This couplet expresses people's profound respect for General Yue Fei and deep hatred for the four murderers condemned by history.
After lunch, visit the Eight-Diagram Field. The Eight-Diagram Field used to be owned by the imperial courts of the Southern Song Dynasty. In 1143, Zhao Gou, the Emperor Gaozong of Song ordered the field to be open, so he could show his respect to agriculture and pray on a good harvest. Every spring when it was time for ploughing, the emperor would bring along his civil and military officials to show respect and pray. Now the filed has become a park combining historical and cultural relics with an agriculture popularization venue to display modern farming culture.
The last stop is the Hefang Street. Hefang Street is an ancient street with time-honored history and profound culture. The street used to be at the foot of the ancient imperial palace of the Southern Song Dynasty and was the cultural and financial center of the dynasty. As the only ancient street preserving the historical landscape of ancient Hangzhou, Hefang Street is an infusion of the most representative historical culture, business culture, old lifestyle of Hangzhou and architectural culture.
After the Hangzhou day trip ends, you will be taken back to the Hangzhou train station or your hotel in Hangzhou and your tour ends.
