As the saying goes, a visit to Hangzhou without visiting to Linyin Temple is not a complete trip. Your first stop will be the Linyin scenic spot area where you will visit the Peak flying from afar, a pure limestone mountain which has about 330 different stone Buddha status which were mainly caved around the 9-12th century by the monk who lived in the temple during that period. It’s also the largest and the best preserved Buddhist grotto in southern China. Pay a visit to the Buddhist temple where you will see the local prayers and also learn about Chinese religious culture.

Continue to the local green tea farm where you will taste local Hangzhou-cuisine food at the homemade restaurant and taste some local famous dragon well (Longjin) green tea. After lunch you will have a short hiking trip along the tea plantation. Enjoy the amazing view of the tea garden and learn about tea picking and culture.

After that head to the famous West Lake area, the “golden name card “of Hangzhou and famed for its beautiful natural scenery and its historic sites and cultural relics. Visit some of the top ten attractions along the lake, walk in the lotus flower park, and learn the history and well-know folklore. You can also choose to take a boat ride along the lake to enjoy its beauty and tranquility.

Then, travel to the local old pedestrian street – Hefang Street (designed in southern Song-Dynasty), which showcases a variety of interesting Chinese crafts and local snacks and street food. This is a good place to shop for local souvenirs for your families or friends. Here you can also have a quick visit to the local popular flower, bird, and pet market.

Travel back to Shanghai and your guide will see you off at Shanghai hotel.
