Hangzhou, listed in the hottest tourist destinations of the world by Nytimes.com 2018-05-31
 
HANGZHOU- January 7, 2011 (Nytimes) - Among the 41 global tourist destinations, Hangzhou was listed as the only tourist city of China. It is the equivalence to many internationally top tourist cities such as London, Singapore and Milan. It is just an hour from Shanghai; a historic jewel goes five-star.


 
Although Hangzhou is only now coming into the global spotlight, its gorgeous pagodas, historic temples and lush gardens have been inspiring Chinese poets and painters for centuries. Recently, the feverish growth of Shanghai has sparked the rediscovery of Hangzhou as a peaceful retreat and a cultural masterpiece. And with it, a new generation of luxury hotels has arrived: Shangri-la overlooking West Lake; the Banyan Tree set within China’s first wetland reserve; the Aman, close to some of the area’s most spectacular ancient Buddhist temples up in the hills; and most recently, the Four Seasons with a destination spa and two swimming pools set up along the lagoons. Next up is an Angsana, the Banyan Tree’s design-chic sister hotel. And with the debut of a high-speed train from Shanghai, it’s now — unbelievably — less than a one-hour journey from central Shanghai. Once there, rent a bike and step into sights like Lingyin Temple, one of the world’s most important Buddhist temples.
