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 Nightlife

As a modern metropolis, the nightlife of Hangzhou is vigorous and fascinating. After daytime excursions to lakes and mountains in Hangzhou, tourists can get wholly relaxed at night. If you prefer a quiet and relaxing night, you may choose to walk along the lake shoreline which is dotted with benches accompanied by dweeping willow trees.

Hangzhou is like a melting pot which assimilates various cultures from various countries including some foreign countries. And as the typical representative of its rich culture, pubs & bars here are enchanting and fascinating to many tourists. There are many kinds of pubs, bars and teahouses to the tastes of different tourists, mainly clustered in Nanshan Road and Hubin Road.

We sum up some top things to do at night in Hangzhou. And we also do hope to receive your version of Hangzhou nightlfie after your Hangzhou tour.

Top 1: Night Stroll along the lake shoreline of West Lake
West Lake is at its best when it is brilliantly lit in the evening on weekends or public holidays. People are intoxicated by the neon-lit boats plying on the lake, the firy pagodas, the illuminated mountains, the starry causeways and dream-like lakeshores. You will have a lot of photography opportunity and at the same time you should prepare for possible crowds and people watch due to a lot of foot traffic.

Top 4: Wushan Night Market in Hangzhou
If you’d like to kill 1-2 hour at night on your Hangzhou tour Wushan Night Market is one of your best choices. Wushan Night Market is mainly located on the north-south Huixing Road (惠兴路) which meets the east-west Renhe Road (仁和路) on the north for a T junction and Youdian Road (邮电) on the south again for a T road. So you may enter the night market (Huixing Road 惠兴路) from Renhe Road and Youdian Road.

Top 5. Evening Shopping at Pedestrian Streets in Hangzhou
In China, some major cities have nice carefree shopping streets teemed with exciting lights, shopping and entertainment such Beijing Wangfujing Pedestrian Street, Shanghai Nanjing Road, Chengdu Kuan zhai Xiang Zi, Chongqing Ciqi Kou , Lanzhou Zhangye Street etc.

Top 7: Impression West Lake
If you are interested in Hangzhou culture, Impression West Lake is highly recommended. Impression West Lake-a unique metropolitan outdoor performance in a natural stage setting, is the most beautiful metropolitan theater with natural mountains and water as its backdrop.

Directed by Zhang Yimou, the content of the performance would be circled firmly to the word “water” in order to incarnate the essence and lingering charm of the West Lake.

Top 8: Song City at night
As you know, Hangzhou Song City is the firs and largest park with a theme of Song Dynasty culture, where tourists can learn about the daily life of a Song Dynasty resident. However, the park at night offers you another different flavor. Song city under the prismy lighting is so noisy with huge crowd of people. All kinds of stores imitated the Southern Song Dynasty are open, such as weaving workshop, stithy, money house (bank), and so on.

It really matches with the aim of the park—Only one day time, give you back Millennium affection. You will feel you are in the time tunnel.
