Hills covered in tea plantations are one of the arguments for Hangzhou, along with its lake. If you have never seen tea plantations and are very sick of a big city like Shanghai, the city may be worth a day break. Otherwise, it is an expensive, crowded, unoriginal and overrated place for someone coming from abroad. This is typically a nice place for the people who live here or want a week-end break from the coast, but is not world class at all. My only and big disappointment in China.
Lin Ying Temple
This is the famous temple in China, I heard of this name since I was very very young. It is famous for if you go there pray for something it always can work.
Well i am a christian, i dont pray for anything but just look around. Its a very hot day when i visit, I saw a group of muslim woman who dress in black, I wonder if they are ok in such weather. I eat 3 ice cream in 1 hour, and stomach pain at night time.
