Tour Highlights
Lingyin Temple
With a history of about 1,700 years, Lingyin Temple, the first magnificent temple in Hangzhou, was built in 326 AD in the Eastern Jin Dynasty (317 - 420 AD). Located in a gorge between two huge mountains, Peak Flown From Afar and North Peak, this hillside temple is enveloped by dense trees, thick mist, and chirm of birds. As a well-known Buddhist temple, it enshrines many Buddhist relics, such as Diamond Sutra and gilded Buddha statues as well as imperial steles. There is a solemn and grand 24.8-meter (81.4-feet) high statue of Sakyamuni sitting on a lotus-seat in the Mahavira Hall.

Answered by Carol | Oct. 31, 2018 02:30

First, you need to walk about 10 minutes to the Yuhuwan Station of the Bus No.318 and take the bus to Wulin Small Square Station. Then, walk to the Wulinmen Airline Ticket Office Station and take the Wulinmen Airport line to get to Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport with the fare of CNY20 per person. The shuttle bus is available from 5am to 9pm. If you take a taxi directly, the fare is around CNY120.

The must-see place in Hangzhou is the West Lake. In addition, the Lingyin Temple, Meijiawu Tea Plantation, Grand Canal and Qinghefang Ancient Street are also recommended. If your time is ample, you may also visit the Thousand Islets Lake or a nearby water town like Wuzhen or Xitang.

As for the tidal bore at Qiantang River, it can be seen from the 1st to 5th day, and from the 15th to the 20th day of each lunar month. And the best wave usually can be seen in September.

Asked by Kris from PHILIPPINES | Dec. 20, 2017 06:55Reply
How do I get from Shanghai Pudong International Airport to Hangzhou? I arrive at 12 midnight.
My family and I are going there for a holiday. The thing is, we're going to arrive in Shanghai at midnight and will possibly exit the airport at around 1AM. Which station should we go to to board the high speed train to Hangzhou? I'm confused because when I look at articles online, there are two railways: Shanghai Railway Station and Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station, so I don't know which one.
Do we need to buy tickets online or can we buy it there? How much will that cost?

Answered by David from GERMANY | Dec. 21, 2017 21:19

Sorry to tell you no high speed train is available at that time.
You can wait until next morning and catch an early train from Hongqiao Station at 6:03, 6:13, 6:25… It costs CNY73 for a second seat and CNY117 for a first.
To the Hongqiao Station, you can take metro line 2 directly there. It costs CNY9.

Will the tide of Qiantang river be worth seeing between 22 and 26 March 2017 ? If so, at what time ?
Answers (2)
Answered by Sylvia | Mar. 22, 2017 02:24

Yes. According to the information online, you can see it on Mar 22, 2017. The tidal bore can be seen at around 03:47 and 21:57 in Yanguan. If you are in Hangzhou, you can go to Nanxingqiao or Jiuxi to see the tidal bore. The wave can be seen at 12:23/01:33 at Nanxingqiao and 12:46/01:56 at Jiuxi. By the way, I would suggest you to get there at least 40 minutes early to wait for the tide.
Answered by Ray from UK | Mar. 23, 2017 04:03

Thank you Sylvia for your very helpful reply. Unfortunately we saw it too late to make plans to see the wave.
