Red Bayberry Carnival in Dujia Village 2017-06-27
On June 18 the 17th Xiaoshan Festival of Red Bayberry in Dujia Village will kick off in Hangzhou Eco-park in Dujia Village (杜家村), Suoqian Town (所前镇),Xiaoshan District (萧山区). The festival, held consecutively now for 16 years, honours this old-time imperial tribute and is a must for all bayberry lovers. 

The red bayberries needed for this scrumptious June festival are all produced in Dujia Village which has a time-honoured history in the cultivation of this delicious fruit. The history of the locals cultivating red bayberry can be traced back to some 1,700 years ago. In fact Dujia Bayberry gained its fame during the Northern Song Dynasty when it was served as an imperial tribute. In 2010 Suoqian Town, which administers Dujia Village, was listed as the first town to be honoured as ‘The Hometown of Red Bayberry in China’ and now it owns nearly 8,000 square kilometers of red bayberry plantations and the annual production of red bayberry in this area can reach up to 1,200,000 kilograms.

Besides some traditional activities like tasting Dujia red bayberry and touring Suoqian Town, a cultural festival given by the locals will also tastefully satisfy its visitors.

Hangzhou, Soaked in Traditional Chinese Medicine2017-11-21
Traditional Chinese medicine has a time-honored history. As early as ancient times, through the process of struggling with nature, traditional Chinese medicine was created. When searching for food, it was discovered that plants could relieve symptoms, which is the origins of traditional Chinese medicine; hot rocks or sand and earth wrapped up with furs or tree barks eased pain when warming oneself by a fire, which is how moxibustion came into being. It is also during the process of producing tools, that the ancient Chinese discovered the stabbing of some parts of the body can ease the pain of some other parts of the body, and that is how acupuncture come into being.
