The home of our ITTT course in Eastern China is located 180 Kilometres south west of the bustling modern metropolis of Shanghai in Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang province. Hangzhou is one of the cleanest and wealthiest cities in the whole of China. It is based at the southern end of the Grand Canal on the lower reaches of the Quiantang River. This city experiences a subtropical monsoon climate with four unique seasons. The temperature is quite constant year round meaning that it is never too hot or too cold.
Described by Marco Polo as the most beautiful city in the world, Hangzhou is an historic city which is full of culture not least because it is one of the seven capitals of ancient China. Tourists are drawn to this city for a number of reasons including the famous Western Lake (Xi Hu) and attractive surroundings which are great for cycling and walking around. Also popular are the Fuchin and Xin’an rivers, Thousand Island Lake where you can sail boats or visit some of the many islands. Fei Lai Feng caves are also worth a visit, housing hundreds of Buddhist stone statues from the 10th to 14 centuries. Museums abound and there is also a nearby water park.
The city occupies an area of approximately 6,047 square miles and has a population of 5.2 million people. It is made up of six urban districts and seven suburban counties. As far as shopping goes Hangzhou boasts some of the most world class international retail outlets in China and is considered a weekend getaway for shoppers from the wealthier classes of Shanghai. Although better known for its silk and tea products, this city offers a myriad of shops and cheaper markets. The night market is the place for you if you like to spend the evening browsing stalls with varied items and affordable presents and enjoy bartering with the locals.
There is a varied nightlife scene in Hangzhou affording you a taste of local culture in any one of a number of local bars, clubs and restaurants. Younger inhabitants tend to dominate the nightlife, although people of all ages can be seen enjoying themselves. Why not start your night by taking advantage of the ‘Happy Hour' offered at Feng Jiu Bar. You may then want to go bar hopping or take a look at Nanshan Road where many local bars are located.
It is recommended that you also experience Shanghai during your stay in China. For USD$10 you can take the exciting high-speed express train from Hangzhou and be there in about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
