Hangzhou’s many Shades of Autumn 2017-10-13
For Hangzhou, a classic Jiangnan-style city, green is its representative color. However, in this glowing season it is fair to say that Hangzhou has many shades of autumn, especially along the roads which have become poetic and vivid in their seasonal sceneries.

 Beishan Road 

Location: in the West Lake Scenic Area
Highlight: Chinese parasol

Beishan Road, adjacent to the north of the West Lake, is approximately 1500 meters long and is lined with an array of yellow parasols. In autumn, with the bright sunshine, the yellow hue becomes even brighter, forming a strong contrast with the nearby green and glorious mountains.


 Huayuan Alley 

Location: in Xiacheng District
Highlight: gingko

Zhaohui Gingko Forest, located in Huayuan Alley, has since 1980 been filled with more than 300 old gingkos. Reputed as one of the most beautiful scenes in Hangzhou, it leaves a golden impression behind. Here, you can ramble along the golden blanket of gingko leaves and watch couples taking romantic photosor old people playing chess whilst the children rustle up games in and amongst the fallen leaves.


 Guanyintang Road 

Location: in Jianggan District
Highlight: metasequoia

Guanyintang Road used to be the flood dam of Qiantang River, where more than 380 metasequoias have been thriving and are now at least 20 meters high. In spring, metasequoias sprout up as new hopes; in summer, they make pleasant shades for tourists; when deep autumn comes, golden leaves falls to fertilize the soil; and in winter, they put on their silver coats and light up the world.
