Spring in Hangzhou

Final trip recap: Before heading  back to Shanghai, we spent one more night in Hangzhou and enjoyed a beautiful Monday off wandering around. We've been to Hangzhou a few times by now, but were able to find parts of the city that we'd yet to explore. These included the Qinghefang Old Street, which was full of street vendors and colorful stalls (including the portrait artists picture above) and the maze-like Xihu Tiandi, which is a series of coffee shops and restaurants connected by bridges jutting out onto West Lake.
The weather was absolutely perfect, leading to one of the prettiest days we've had all year. More pictures here:


  1. Beautiful! Fun to see blue sky--and that pizza thing looks amazing!

  2. Looks terrible. Just terrible.
