After hotel pickup by your guide in the morning, your Hangzhou tour starts by visiting your first attraction, the 5-story Leifeng Pagoda.

As you explore the site and take in its forest and lake setting, your guide tells you about its history dating back to the year 975, during the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period. Named after a famous soldier of the People's Liberation Army of China, the pagoda collapsed in 1924 and wasn't finished again until 2002.

Next, head to the China National Silk Museum to learn about silk's role in Chinese culture and economy. One of the first countries to make clothes out of this luxurious textile, China spread silk into Europe via the ancient Silk Road. The museum provides exhibits about silk's history, as well as the chance to try weaving yourself.

Continue to a restaurant for a lunch of Chinese cuisine before visiting the former residence of Hu Xueyan, a businessman from the Qing dynasty. Inside his home, you can see traditional architecture and design and browse his collections. Then head to Hefang Street (Qinghefang Ancient Street) for a walk. This shopping street is lined with places to buy snacks and souvenirs, which your guide can help you navigate.

Your tour then ends with return transport to your hotel.
