Travel Tips for Hangzhou

West Lake

by aukjejetty

Shimmering water at its full, sunny best.
Blurred mountains in a haze-marvelous even in rain.
Compare West Lake to the beautiful woman Xi Zi:
She looks just as becoming
Lightly made up or richly adorned
-Su Dongpo, 1091

I have nothing to add to this ancient poem.

Find your inner peace at Lingyin

by maria_hz

Lingyin temple was once the largest Buddhist temple in China, and still it is important for the Buddhists in China and thus also very famous in China. This spot has a long history of temples, dating as far back as the Jin Dynasty (300-400 AD), and at its most influential housed a community of around 3000 monks. Nowadays it is a protected site and also a tourist attraction, but is also in religious use. The area is vast, and there is a fair amount of monuments to see too, and some caves too.

There are rock carvings of the Laughing Buddha (you know the one with the happy face and the big belly) and other Buddhas and Buddhist deities. You will know where to go, as everybody else is going that way. The area is very lush, and for those so inclined, a bit of mountain hiking is possible. The Chinese love climbing their mountains, and there are a lot of them on the steep hillside paths you will hardly see any Westerners.

The Lingyin temple itself consists of seven temples, symbolising the ascent into enlightenment. Symbolically, you also have to walk quite a few steps to get to the top, but it really is worth it, as the top temple houses wonderful deities and has a beautiful view.

There is also a locally famous mountain close by called Fei Lai Feng "The Mountain that Flew from Afar", so called because and Indian Buddhist monk visiting the temple about 1000 years ago, thought the peak reminded him of a mountain back home.

The Lingyin area receives a lot of tourists on almost any given day (school and unit outings during the week, tourist groups mostly during weekends and holidays), and so there are signs on how to behave respectfully. One thing it did not say, but which was pointed out to me once, was that you should not step on the doorstep when entering the temples.

Also it is a good idea to try to get there reasonably early (before lunch) to avoid the biggest crowds. But as many people move around in groups, try to avoid the "congested areas" and you'll be fine.

More Chinese Choose Relaxing Travel

"More Chinese Choose Relaxing Travel"

More Chinese Choose Relaxing Travel

This year's vacation for a young woman office worker from southern Guangdong Province is all about sleeping and sipping coffee beside Lake Xihu, rather than rushing around the scenic city of Hangzhou in east China's Zhejiang Province.

More Chinese share Huang's idea of relaxing travel. A survey by the Hangzhou tourism committee shows a rise in such tourists in the first half of this year.

The city endowed with a big lake has long been a popular resort. Tourists heading for Hangzhou mainly go for the scenery. Historical sites and folk culture are listed as the second main reason for visiting.

However, fewer people report being interested in busily taking souvenir photos this year. Instead, they chose to relax and unwindin this tranquil city.

"Charming West Lake"

Lake Xihu ,named like West lake,is a charming virgin in my eyes.
