    Brief of Former Residence of Hu Xueyan

    Hu Xueyan (1823-1885), a Hangzhou celebrity, was one of the richest and most famous businessmen in the Qing Dynasty (1636-1911). He started his business with support from the Governor, Wang Youling. As an early entrepreneur, Hu Xueyan founded businesses in the fields of food, real estate, hock, weapons, silk and traditional Chinese medicine (which subsequently created a famous brand "Hu Qing Yu Tang"). After his success, he donated much money and time to the Qing government. Because of this, Hu was renowned throughout the country and was called the Hongding merchant. His legendary life was mostly related with the destiny of the late Qing Dynasty.

    Situated in downtown Hangzhou, the Former Residence of Hu Xueyan is a place to peek into the aristocracy of Hangzhou’s richest merchant, hailing from the Qing Dynasty. It is a maze of towers, gardens, pavilions, terraces, arched bridges, palatial halls and serene living quarters. Several hours spent here will bestow you with cherished memories of ancient Chinese culture manifested by its stunning architecture, philosophy and bewildering folklore customs, which are still alive.
