Day 3 – Day-trip from Hangzhou

If you have an extra day, then a day trip from Hangzhou to Wuzhen, an ancient water town, has been recommended to me a few times by a number of people.


Hangzhou Accommodation

As for where to stay – a list of potential accommodation options can be found here. I can vouch for the Sunny Huansha Hotel. Another decent cheaper option is the Mingtown Hangzhou International Youth Hostel, just next to the West Lake on the east.


Enjoy. Let me know how your trip was.

That's a very well-written itinerary. Worth a tweet 🙂
I will definitely return here when writing a guide to romantic places in China.


How do you reach the place? By public transportation or car?
