North Peak Lingyin Temple

by kierk1

I was in Hangzhou 20 years ago and I loved it! I remember the Temple and the North peak and I'm trying to write a story (a positive one) which has a scene in those places. My two characters have to leave the temple and climb up to the peak and down to some other place (a road, building or site)so I'm really interested in what this climb would be like, the path, the trees, flowers, bushes, sounds, sights, smells, water, the views. Anything like that would help me. Also, any description of how you enter the Temple from the road, stream, trees, path, people, sounds, smells.The time of year would be July. Thank you very much!

Hi Gene,

Am a Kiwi living in Hangzhou at the moment. I have not been to the North Peak Lingyin Temple yet - slack I know. But your plea for help is a good excuse to go. Have a digital camera so will take photo's for you. Will go this week so stay tuned.

Best wishes

Travel Tips for Hangzhou

TAXI in Hangzhou

by honestjohn

The model and condition of taxis in Hangzhou are one of the best among Chinese cities. There is a sign saying "TAXI" at the top of a taxi. Taxies charge according to the meter. The start price is RMB10 yuan within 4km. RMB 2 yuan for one kilometer within 8km. RMB 2.4 yuan for one kilometer beyond 8km. RMB 2 yuan per 5 minutes is charged for waiting.
Hangzhou is a very small city, generally, the charge of taxi is around 15yuan. and never overpass RMB30yuan even to the very far surburn of the city.
NOTE: The taxi service is 24hour, BUT you should notice that at 7:00 to 8:00 am and 5:00 to 6:00pm, it is VERY hard to get a taxi, because at that time, the daytime driver and the night driver are shifting their service and that happened to be the rush hour everyday. This is very anoying. therefore, you should avoid to take taxi at that periods.

Autumn: surrounded by the scent of osmanthus

by maria_hz

September-October is the time when the osmanthus blossoms in Hangzhou. Osmanthus is the City Flower of Hangzhou, and travel guides will suggest you go to Manjuelong Village in the National Park mountains not far away from the West Lake. However, since it is the city flower, there are osmanthuses everywhere in Hangzhou, so you don't need to go anywhere, just pay attention to the smell of blossom. You truly can smell the sweet scent of the flower, it is rather strong in spite of the small and rather insignificant-looking flower.

Osmanthus is not only a nice scent on trees, it is also used to flavour sugar and you can taste the faint osmanthus scent in pastries and cakes.

See the website below for some info on the flower and the fragrance:
