What you'll do

Early in the morning, we sit on a creaking paddle boat punted by the master from the water management office, crossing the ancient bridge holes to enjoy the tranquil west lake. Between the mountains, the water vapor rises from the lake, the ancient pagoda and Cheng-huang tempo stand out from the lake, which may be something you have never seen before. It has the artistic conception of classical Chinese aesthetics. Here and now, you may really be the master of lake & mountain for a day, to feel the charm of Tang and Song dynasties. From late autumn to early spring, swarms of black wild cormorants return from Siberia to take shelter from the cold. They plunge into the water to fish and dry their wings in the cold wind. Sometimes you will meet a mother duck and her ten children, or a family of egrets learning to hunt. They are living in a wild reeds deep in the west lake. We will have local breakfast together on the boat,to boil this year's new tea in Hupao spring water, and share some traditional tea pastries. If you'd like to know more about Hangzhou, I will tell you the local way of life here .
