The Hangzhou Tourism Commission has launched tourist programs for three seasons, and all the activities can be completed on the website hxz.gotohz.com.
The theme of the first season is “Honeymoon.” It started last month and runs to April 30. If you find your parents’ old photos related to Hangzhou, especially those snapped during their honeymoon, you can post them on hxz.gotohz.com (Chinese only) or Sina weibo and mention Hangzhou Tourism Commission in the weibo content. People who share old pictures could win prizes offered by the Hangzhou Tourism Commission.
The second season is from May 1 to July 31, and the theme is “Grand Canal Travel.” Hangzhou government started the preparation for the Grand Canal’s application for the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2006, and this year, the application will be officially submitted to UNESCO.

The last season is from August 1 to November 30. Its theme, “Hangzhou DNA,” refers to cafes, restaurants, cultural and creative parks and other elements of the city. People can snap photos of what Hangzhou’s DNA is in their eyes and share them on hxz.gotohz.com. Also, a seven-day free vacation in Hangzhou will be awarded to a lucky participant.
