If you are craving peace and tranquility, then why not go and discover some of Hangzhou’s secret escapes. These serene and beautiful places are only a small hideaway from this boisterous city so, waste no time and set off to experience life in a tranquil village for a few days.

Shuangling Village



Embraced by green hills on three sides, Shuangling Village is blessed with a picturesque and quiet environment where rolling tea mountains and diaphanous clouds abound. Strolling amongst a blanket of fresh tea leaves, you will come across the black variety called “Jiu Qu Hong Mei” which has a distinguished taste, and whilst rambling along the tranquil village alley, you will also be able to appreciate Hangzhou’s remarkable architecture.

Sitting back in the peaceful yard of the wild plantation garden whilst drinking a pot of green tea and admiring the fantastic landscape is simply bliss. You can also sit in the study to roam in the world of books. Furthermore, there are many other enjoyable activities to do in these villages such as climbing the Ruyi Mountain or enjoying the view of Banbi Mountain Reservoir where the reflection of the mountains forms a picture postcard in the pool below.

Dongjiangzui Fishing Village



Located at the confluence of the Qiantang River, Fuchun River and Puyang River, the crescent-shaped Dongjiangzui Village is endowed with a long stretch of river, delicious fish and rustic charm. According to the residents, the village is shaped like a mouth of a giant bird and this is the reason why it is so named Dongjiazui.

When the sun rises above the village’s ethereal mists, the fishing boats are casting their silver nets in the wide Qiantang River to catch fat shrimps and other fish. Integrating yourself into the simple life of a fisherman, you will not only experience fishing and religious cultures but will also be able to taste the river’s succulent, fresh and tasty fish. A moment to treasure may be simply eating a platter of fish whilst drinking the Kaoliang Wine which is brewed by the local residents with their indigenous methods.
 

Waitongwu Village



The unsophisticated and idyllic lifestyle in Waitongwu Village has been adhered to since one thousand years. It’s not only a tea village but a habitat of arts. Whilst appreciating the expansive and luxuriant tea plantation, discovering the art studios which hide in and among the village is also an imaginative thing for you to do.
