How about the city of Hangzhou?
Hangzhou is the capital and the most populated city of Zhejiang Province in Southeast China. It’s renowned for its historic relics and natural beauty. The city’s West Lake is among its best-known attractions. That’s why it’s often known as the “Paradise on Earth” in China.

The 2016 G20 Summit was held in Hangzhou. It was the first ever G20 Summit to be hosted in China.

Hangzhou cuisine is known for its freshness, sweetness and delicate preparation. The signature dishes include honey lotus root stuffed with glutinous rice, West Lake carp in vinegar gravy, Dong Po pork and Beggar’s Chicken. Each dish usually has a story behind how it was made or how it got its name.

Of course, sipping the local Dragon Well Tea is a must do in Hangzhou. The tea is well-known for its smooth leaves, fragrant scent and gentle, sweet taste. The earliest record of the tea was found in Tang Dynasty about 1,400 years ago.

Direct trains link Hangzhou with more than 50 main cities. It takes less than an hour from Hangzhou to Shanghai by High-Speed train. The main station is Hangzhou East Railway Station, which is one of the biggest rail traffic hubs in China.
