West Lake, the most noted symbol of historic Hangzhou, is surrounded by mountains in three directions and houses many places of interest in and around the lake area.

Initially established during the Eastern Jin Dynasty near the Peak Flown From Afar, Lingyin Temple (Temple of Soul's Retreat) is more than 1,600 years old, being one of the ten well-known Zen temples in China.

The museum consists of five parts: Exhibition Hall, Hall of Handicraft Workshop and Interest Room, Out-patient Clinic of Chinese Medicine and Healthcare, Room of Chinese Herbal Soup and Business Hall.

China's National Silk Museum is the first specializing in silk, aiming to show the history and development of Chinese silk during the past 5,000 years. The museum is located on the south shore of  West Lake, consisting of eight exhibition halls and housing exhibits from the Neolithic Age to the Qing Dynasty.

The China National Tea Museum is in the town of Dragon Well Tea in the elegant city of Hangzhou, capital of silk and tea since ancient times.

Child Prices for the Bullet Train
Hi there,
We'll be making the Hangzhou --> Guangzhou in April. I was wondering if prices for children are the same as adults for the bullet train?

Also, for a hard or soft sleeper, can you book an entire sleeper room for your family? Or will people from a family get split up into different sleeper rooms?

Megan, one adult is allowed to bring one child under 3.9 feet for free. Children between 3.9 and 4.9 feet can buy tickets at half price. You should buy full price ticket for children higher than 4.9 feet.
You can pick sleepers. If you are unluckily split up, you can discuss with other passengers to change sleepers with you.
I remember the booking website only has Chinese version, you can try to contact TravelChinaGuide to let them help you with the reservation. Their e-mail is bookingtravelchinaguide.com. May help!

Sarah, you can go there either by train or flight. If you take K train, it takes around 19 to 20 hours though the ticket prices are cheap (CNY 351 for hard sleeper and CNY 615 for soft sleeper). By high speed train, it takes around 6.5 to 7.5 hours. The ticket prices are CNY 720 for a second class seat and CNY 1185.5 for a first class seat.

I suggest you fly there. The air ticket just costs CNY 800 to 900 in August. It just takes around 2 hours.
