We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Hangzhou Group Tour
( Leifeng Pagoda, West Lake )

April 12, 2008. This morning we ascended Leifeng Pagoda to have a panoramic view of the West Lake in Hangzhou. Later we took a boat ride on the West lake. Lei Feng pagoda was built in 975, by the King of Wuyue Kingdom to celebrate the birth of a son. Since its contruction, it got many names. But only Leifeng Pagoda is kept alive.

The pagoda became a household name in China mainl due to the popular love story - "The Legend of the White Snake" about a girl ( a snake changed girl and a young man ). The story has been repeatedly adapted for traditional operas, modern movies and TV series.

It was a cloudy today. We couldn't see far from the Pagoda. But people were not disappointed. As Su Shi, an famous poet of the Song Dynasty (960-1279), wrote in his peom, he likened the West Lake to Xi Shi, a famous beauty in ancient times "Rippling water shimmers on a sunny day; misty mountains are wonderful in the rainy day. Just like Xi Shi, the West Lake is always attractive." As Su described in his poem, the beauty of the West Lake survives the change of seasons, weather, and times of day. The boating on the West Lake was the highlight tour program today.

Circled on its three sides by rolling, green mountains, the West Lake covers an area of 5.65 square kilometers. Xiaoyingzhou, Huxinting, and Ruangongdun Islets look like three gems lying the lake's surface; and the Su and Bai Causeways are like floating ribbons with green willows. All these elements form a beautiful landscape painting; and travelers feel as if they are inside the painting.
