West Lake International Tea Culture Expo 2017-05-11

 
Hangzhou, the tea capital of China, has a time-honored history in tea cultivation and tea drinking.

 

And as “Paradise on the Earth”, Hangzhou is blessed with bright mountains and rivers which have bred many high-profile teas. Among them, the West Lake Dragon Well Tea tops the ten renowned teas in China and is considered as a green name card perfectly presentable to the rest of the World. In addition to this, Dragon Well Tea is also  representative of the culture of West Lake (UNESCO World Heritage Site). In order to deepen the development of the tea industry and promote tea culture, West Lake International Tea Culture Expo has been held annually since 2005.

 

During the Expo, people get to see tea frying performances as well as various other kinds of Chinese tea in its opening ceremony. This is definitely an eye-opening experience for tea aficionados. Also, there is a tea-crazy tour in April. At weekends, special chartered buses transport  tourists to local tea attractions such as China Tea Museum (中国茶叶博物馆), Meijiawu Tea Culture Village (梅家坞茶文化村) etc. In the China Tea Museum, people can learn about tea-growing and tea-drinking in China, as well as experiencing the variety of  various tea ceremonies that reigned or still reign in China. In Meijiawu Tea Culture Village, people can visit the tea plantation, and tea processing area, and learn how to hand-fry tea, as well ashow to identify the true West Lake Dragon Well tea from the fake one. A valuable skill to learn in Hangzhou!

2017 Qiantang River Tidal Bore Watching Guideline2017-09-22
Qiantang River is the largest river in Zhejiang Province and empties itself into the Eastern China sea through Hangzhou Bay. The Qiangtang River tidal bore is a world-renowned spectacle and is reputed as the "No. 1 Tidal Bore in the World". The Qiantang River tidal bore, often reaching heights of three meters, results from the gravitational forces and the rotation of the earth, and the fact that Hangzhou Bay is shaped like a trumpet.
