Alibabas Tech-Hub Hometown ——Hangzhou

Hangzhou, which hosted the 2016 G20 summit, was once anointed the "finest and most splendid city in the world" by Marco Polo. The people, the temples, the gardens, the food, the life and above all the lake in Hangzhou are all as charming, peaceful and beautiful as they were centuries ago, and continue to inspire their poetry and romantic legends.



West Lake(西湖) is a freshwater lake in Hangzhou, CHINA. Unique boats such as painted boats with designs of the Southern Song Dynasty and dragon boats can be hired in many wharfs along the west lake. There are ten traditional best-known scenic spots on the West Lake such as “dawn on the Su Causeway in spring”, “curved yard and lotus pool in summer, “moon over the peaceful lake in autumnremnant snow on the bridge in winter” and so on. There are 14 lotus cultivation areas in the lake, totally 130 Chinese acres. West Lake lotus usually starts to bloom in early June. 



The Grand Canal(京杭大运河), completed in 618 AD, is a world UNESCO heritage site and, although it may be hard to believe, it runs all the way from Beijing to Hangzhou, which makes it the largest artificial river in the world passes through four separate Chinese provinces. It contributed to faster trading and improved China''''s economy in the past. Nowadays, you can take a relaxing cruise on this canal.
