I'm currently in New Zealand, so I've queued up some posts from my trip to China in January this year.
Here are a few pictures from Zhouzhuang and Hangzhou, two places we visited which were really pretty. This is going to be somewhat of a photodump because I have nothing much to say apart from "pretty!".
A town built on canals, in between Shanghai and Suzhou. One of the places called "Venice of the East". It's a major tourist destination but pretty quiet when we were there. We took a little boat ride through the waterways.
Hangzhou is a pretty big city but its main attractions are scenic. We went on a boat ride on West Lake (a World Heritage site) and also saw the tea fields (Hangzhou is also known for its green tea). I imagine it would be even lovelier in the summer.
