Discover the luxury Aman hotels and resorts in Hangzhou, China
One of the seven ancient capitals of China, Hangzhou has a stash of cultural treasures, including the dreamy West Lake district, Buddhist temples dating back to 326 AD and a number of verdant tea plantations. The picturesque West Lake area is the closest you’ll get to classical China, containing over 60 relic sites sitting amongst the lush greenery of the surrounding hills and the willow-lined banks of the lake itself, making it a popular spot for domestic tourists. Tea plantations occupy the misty hills, producing Longjing and Jingshan tea. However, don’t presume it’s a rural town – the capital of the Zhejiang province is also a sprawling metropolis, home to a lively business district and a number of annual global exhibitions.
