Autumn in Hangzhou is always charming but short. If you don’t want to simply waste, follow the upcoming West Lake International Expo Citizen Leisure Festival to spend an interesting weekend mini-vacation.
This year the Citizen Leisure Festival lasts from Oct.16 to 19. The main venue is in Wushan Square, Chenghuang Temple and Wugongshan Scenic Area. Various theme exhibitions such as food, flowers, recreation and intangible culture exhibitions will be on stage. In the intangible culture exhibition, national inheritors will give live shows.
Many sub-venues will also be set in main urban districts and Tonglu County. Various activities will interest you such as Grand Canal Temple Fair, Southern Song Dynasty Culture Festival, Beauty Festival, Fuchun River Sports Festival, Tonglu Rural Tourism Festival, Jiande Citus Picking Festival, Lin’an autumn and winter tourist activities and Yuhang flower exhibition.
Here comes the good news that last year’s well received dancing water drop show will be on stage again. The giant water drop exhibition once exhibited in Beijing and Roma will be on show in Hangzhou Orioles Singing in the Willows Park.
Praised as “the kidneys of the Earth”, wetlands are both valuable natural resources and important ecosystems. Recently, the second list of Wetlands of Provincial Importance was announced and in total there are 48 among which three are in Hangzhou.
Spring is here and so is the 2017 “Intoxicating Springtime” – Hangzhou Outdoor Leisure Season which, in the following three months, will provide the city with over 50 springtime outdoor experiences and tour itineraries. With six themes to choose from such as child-parent, flower viewing, games and sports, spring couldn’t be livelier.
