Hangzhou : Michelin's recommendations
Situated on the Grand Canal, 1 800km of navigable water between Beijing and Shanghai, Hangzhou was once a major river port and a centre of the silk industry. This link provided more than just commercial rewards, as the city became a capital under the Song dynasty and experienced a period of unequalled sophistication that lasted until the Mongol invasions. As in the past, Hangzhou is now renowned for its delightful location on the West Lake, surrounded by hills and gardens. The city was much admired by Marco Polo and thousands of tourists after him.
