About Hangzhou elsewhere
"Hangzhou (Hangchow) lies in the north of Zhejiang province, in the Qiantangjiang delta, about 40km/25mi west of Hangzhou Bay, at 120°12'E and 30°15'N."
"West Lake ( Chinese : ?? ; pinyin : X? Hú )is a famous fresh water lake located in central Hangzhou ,in Zhejiang province of eastern China."
"Jiangshan is the intersection of the three provinces: Zhejiang Province, Fujian Province and Jiangxi Province."
"I originally picked Peninsula for Beijing, Sheraton for Xian (though someone said there was a better one more centrally located), Shangri-La for Hangzhou, and JW Marriott for Shanghai."
"Having sampled the highlights of Shanghai in just 2 days, make your third and final day a little different by skipping out of town and heading for nearby Hangzhou, once described by Marco Polo as "the finest, most splendid city in the world."."
"Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang, one of China's smallest but most prosperous and powerful provinces, stands at the southern end of the Yangtze delta some 180 km southwest of Shanghai."
"If you're interested in modern Chinese history, Shanghai has much to offer -but if the idea of visiting the site of the first national congress of the CCP, Sun Yatsen's and Zhou Enlai's former houses, the gallery and museum in Peoples Park, etc. doesn't interest you (or absorbing the history of the colonial buildings on the Bund) you can happily spend time just shopping, eating and drinking."
"Follow the route of the Kangxi Emperor's southern tours, visiting some of great cities of late Imperial China: the capital Beijing ,to scared peak of Mount Tai, then the cities of the Yangzi River: Yangzhou, Zhenjiang, Nanjing ; the gardens of Suzhou, finally finish off in the modern metropolis of Shanghai."
About places near Hangzhou
West Lake (Xi Hu) in Hangzhou has an important part in Chinese history - it is very famous for its beauty and has been a source of inspiration for countless Chinese scholars and poets. However at least for me, the most striking feature was not its beauty, but smog. There was a continuous cloud of smog, smoke and pollution all the way from Shanghai to Hangzhou and to West Lake, which at least for me quite ruined the experience. You couldn't see too far, and to think that a place of renowned beauty was polluted like that was nearly incomprehensible.
Worth visiting for sure, if anyway going to Hangzhou, but not in my opinion otherwise - at least during summertime. Maybe the other seasons bring winds, blowing the pollution away.
