Dragon Boat Festival

In the morning, your guide will pick you up at the hotel or anywhere else you'd prefer in downtown Hangzhou and our destination today is the Xixi National Wetland Park for the annual Dragon Boat Festival. You will find lots of vendors selling the special food for the festival. Zongzi is a typical food. It is a traditional Chinese snack made of glutinous rice (which is gluten-free) and stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo leaves. On the river, many beautifully decorated traditional boats will be lining up. Though the race is very exciting and competitive, all the competitors are also providing a friendly and energetic show for the public as an important sporting event in Dragon Boat Festival.

After lunch, you could stroll around the West Lake and appreciate its unique scenery. It would definitely live up to its reputation as the "Natural World Heritage" and a grand symbol of Hangzhou. West Lake cruise tour awaits you in the afternoon. Remember to take pictures while relaxing on a peaceful cruise on West Lake. You will see some of the most beautiful landscape in China. Then we will visit a house garden that was previously privately owned. There are gorgeous peonies flourishing and some beautiful ponds with fish swimming around. After the entire schedule, we will take you back to your hotel.
