Hangzhou experiencing tourism boom during this year’s “Golden Week” holiday

Published on : Saturday, October 12, 2019

Hangzhou, a famous tourist city in east China, is experiencing tourism boom during this year’s “Golden Week” holiday. As per official data, Hangzhou witnessed 18.9537 million tourists during the seven-day National Day holiday, going up 6.7 percent year-on year.

 

Tourism revenue totaled 16.081 billion Yuan, increasing 6.02 percent compared to one year ago, according to Hangzhou Municipal Bureau of Culture, Radio, TV and Tourism.

 

The period from Oct.1 to Oct. 7 is China’s National Day holiday each year, and is known as the “Golden Week” – a popular time for Chinese people to travel.

 

When Marco Polo visited the leafy, lakeside city of Hangzhou in the 13th century, he called it “the finest and most splendid city in the world”.

 

History, culture and nature make c a unique travel destination. Today, Hangzhou symbolizes a leisurely, mellow way of life. Besides the classically Chinese triptych of green tea, fine silk, and pen-and-ink views, the city is home to three UNESCO world heritage sites, namely the West Lake, the Grand Canal and the Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City.

 

At the heart of this ultramodern city is West Lake, which has captivated and inspired some of China’s finest artists, writers and poets.

 

Every season at West Lake is a delight for visitors.

 

But Hangzhou’s charms are beyond this beautiful lake. The city has scores of culturally and historically important sites, many of which date back to the Neolithic period. Among them, the Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City is an evidence of the Chinese civilization’s history of over five thousand years.

 

Today, Hangzhou is one of China’s most exciting destinations, blending nature, wonderfully preserved temples, pagodas and pavilions, and big city hits. It is also home to the headquarters of e-commerce giant Alibaba.
