Hangzhou’s Night Cruises 2017-07-31

In Hangzhou, the night is the most alluring. Rather than in the heat of the daytime, the night is the coolest time to appreciate the beauties of any one of Hangzhou’s night cruises.

Night Cruise

Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal Night Cruise



The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal used to be a great project in ancient times and has now become a symbol of Hangzhou. Taking a boat is one of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Hangzhou and the most direct way to appreciate the long canal culture.

All the details, from the Yucong Totem at the stern to the decorative patterns in the boat, reflect the essence of Chinese traditional culture.
