Hangzhou is a city about 200km south of Shanghai with a population of 6.6 millions inhabitants, which comprises a very large area of about 17.000 square kilometres. i think the city itself has about 2 million inhabitants

Hangzhou is the place where the emperor's channel start which connected the city with Beijing about 1500km north

Hangzhou is an old city and can be regarded as a cradle of Chinese civilization. People settled here round 4700 years ago during the Liangzhu era.

In the Song dynasty it was the empire's capital and the world's biggest city with a population of more than 1 million people. Marco Polo called it the "richest and most beutiful city in the world". Just for the record: Marco Polo's hometown was Venice, Europes biggest city which merely counted about 50.000 inhabitants.

Nowadays you do not recognize not very much of the city's history at first sight.



It's a bustling Chinese city as others





with some fine modern buildings
