Hangzhou is a very unique city:
It's a big city in population(about 3 million), but has a very small urban area.
It's a city has 2000 years history, and is the largest and most prosper city 1000 years ago, but every one says it's a young city.
It's a city whose citizens prefer playing and wandering to working, but it has been enjoy a very fast growing rate since 1980s.
It's a city famous for wealth and fast growing economy, but few buildings are over 200 meters.
It's a city known for the West Lake, but originally the lake is used to irrigate the farms surrounding the city.
It's a city said to produce pretty girls, but I didn't met many while I was living there(just joking )
It's a city pretty well known in China, but almost unkown in the world.
Finally, it is called "heaven on earth", but in my eyes it's "the land fall from the heaven"!
