The fourth and fifth places represent the Chinese spirit of the Republic of China. The sixth place represents the national spirit from the Republic of China to New China. These six Hangzhou sages are all household names in China. At the end of the event, I will invite you to have an authentic Hangzhou delicacy in a canteen loved by locals.

In 2017, I published "A Little Wind and Small Things Visiting Hangzhou" (Zhejiang University Press). To write this book, I made a lot of walking field trips to Hangzhou, and I was familiar with Hangzhou's geography, history, customs, customs, and food. After the publication of this book, it received numerous media reports, and was invited by the social platform App "Ding Dingdang" to produce ten live video programs with the theme of slow travel in Hangzhou, which were well received. Now, the focus of my exploration is still Hangzhou's geography, history, local customs, customs, and food.
Before the publication of this book, I served as a senior reporter for the Shanghai Bund Pictorial for 10 years. I interviewed many world-renowned artists, writers, travellers, and humanitarians exclusively in Chinese and English. I have extensive experience in interviews all over the world.
