About Hangzhou Local Tour

Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang Province. It was first established as Qiantang County during the Qin Dynasty in the 3rd century BC. By the Five Dynasties Period (10th century), it was the capital of Wu and Yue and later became the temporary capital of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279). As a world famous tourist city, its chief attraction is the West Lake and some 40 scenic spots scattered around this mountain and lake area of 49 square kilometers.
