Hangzhou’s Past Unraveled Along the Silk Road
Following last year’s 'Modern Marco Polo', a campaign that promoted Hangzhou as a tourist destination to the world, this July Hangzhou Tourism Commission will once again offer foreigners the chance to express their love for Hangzhou through the ‘2015 Hangzhou China Global Tour ’.
This year’s project, starting from Hangzhou, is to travel along the ancient Silk Road and two lucky families, one foreign and one Chinese, will be picked to go on an all-expenses paid 30-day tour where they will weave in and out of 12 famous Silk Road cities whilst unraveling Hangzhou’s past to the rest of the world.
The tour, recorded by media every step of the way, will also visit some American cities and whilst these are not part of the famous Silk Road, they are however important destinations in today’s modern trading world.
Applications will open to the public in April and be selected in May and anyone can enter, on the condition that they love Hangzhou and understand it both culturally and historically. In addition, at least one member of each family must speak fluent English and children should be able to express their feelings freely on the wonderful city of Hangzhou.
This is a trip of a lifetime that crosses a number of ancient paths stitched together by diverse cultures and celebrates Hangzhou which like silk is exquisitely fabricated and once touched will never ever be forgotten.
One more internet-famous restaurant hits Hangzhou. The restaurant offers guests not only tasty food from all over the world, but also an opportunity to experience the supreme airplane VIP services. It is called Hedila Airplane Theme Restaurant. With a giant airplane head, boarding signs, beautiful stewardesses and ceilings resembling the clear starry sky, the details in the restaurant is exactly the same as on a real airplane.
