HANGZHOU 杭州, Zhejiang, China

Hangzhou is located 180km (110mi) southwest of Shanghai and with a population of 6.2 million it is the largest city and capital of Zhejiang Province.
The city is well-known all over the world for the West Lake, which is a Unesco World Heritage Site with tons of temples and pagodas scattered around its banks.

The photos are from two separate visits on 23rd May 2010 and 13th November 2010.

Great set. Chinese cities always blow me away with their massiveness.

Nice pics! The day I visit Shanghai for the first time, I hope to be able to make a daytrip to Hangzhou as well. A pitty that all Chinese cities are covered in that smog, because they look great....

Do you think it is easy to make a daytrip from Shanghai and be able to see West lake, other important sites and the skyscrapers on the same day? Also, I wonder which one is with less haze, from may or november?

though i'm probably going to be spending the night in old hangzhou, i'm pretty sure you can do this, due to the prolific rail lines.
