Full description
Your day will start with a dedicated pickup with your driver and guide waiting at your lobby. First stop is the Leifeng Pagoda, located on the shore of Xizhao Mountain. It was built to celebrate the birth of a son of a local lord. 

Next, visit the Su Causeway, a tree-lined embankment that runs along West Lake. You will then board a 35-minute cruise to admire the breathtaking views of West Lake, a lake that was admired by ancient poets.

You will then head to the Flower Harbor, a scenic garden that includes a peaceful pond and peony garden. Find the words left by ancient emperors here.

Next, enjoy a break for lunch at your own expense, or select the option with lunch included to have a local restaurant booked for you. 

After lunch, visit the Qiantang River Bridge to admire the largest bridge in Hangzhou. You will then visit the Feilai Feng Grottoes, where a total of 345 statues are carved on the caves and cliffs along the river. Among them, the statues of Tibetan Buddhists are particularly striking. 

The next stop is Lingyin Temple, which has about 1000 years of history and is commonly literally translated as the Temple of the Soul's Retreat. It is one of the largest and wealthiest Buddhist temples in China, and contains numerous pagodas and Buddhist grottoes.

Before heading back to your hotel, visit the Longjing Tea Village, where the Chinese tea Dragon Well was founded. Take in the fresh smell of the tea and take scenic photos.
