West Lake
The West Lake is a must for a Hangzhou day tour. It is renowned for not only beautiful lakes and mountains, but also a lot of historical sites. Looking like a pearl surrounded by hills from three directions, the West Lake has totally unique and enchanting scenery in four seasons - weeping willows sprouting and peach trees blooming along the causeways in spring; lotus leaves and flowers swaying in the ponds in summer; setting sun reflected on the lake in autumn; and the red plum blossoms flickered on white snow in winter. You will enjoy the beauty of the West Lake whenever you reach there. Taking a West Lake tour by cruise boat, you can watch the famous Bai Causeway, the Su Causeway as well as Leifeng Pagoda from a distinctive perspective.
West Lake is famous for both the stunning sceneries and fascinating legend

It is about 18km (11 mi) from the Meijiawu Tea Village to Hangzhou Train Station. You may take the Bus No.103 from Meijiawu Station to Liugongyuan North Station first and transfer to the Subway Line 1 to Chengzhan Station. Exit the subway from Exit A2 and walk about 5 minutes to Hangzhou Railway Station.

There are two railway stations in Hangzhou.
They are 'Hangzhou Railway Station' and 'Hangzhou East Railway Station'.
They are both reachable through Subway Line 1.
Pay attention to that.

From your hotel, walk southwest around 550 meters to get to Zhiwuyuan Bus Stop. Then take bus no.807 to Lingyin Bus Stop. After arriving, walk west around 700 meters to find the entrance.
Or for your convenience, you can also take a taxi to the temple. The cab fare is around CNY 15.
