Full description
At approximately 08:00, your English-speaking guide will arrive at your Shanghai hotel lobby to pick you up. Climb into a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle and begin your 2.5-hour journey to Hangzhou. Upon arrival, start your first activity, a cruise on the West Lake. From the cruise, you will have the best view of the West Lake and town of Hangzhou. After your cruise tour, head to the famed Lingyin Temple, also known as the Temple of the Soul's Retreat. There, your guide will tell you the history of the temple.

Afterwards, make a brief stop at a local Chinese restaurant for a traditional Chinese lunch. Next, head to Meijiawu Tea Village located on a hill in the western part of Hangzhou.
