Hangzou by fast is the most beautiful place we have visited in China. The landscape has much more character than in the North and the foliage is so green and breathtaking. Today (6.10.2011) we had the opportunity to take a boat ride on the West lake and then walk around. Everything in this area is absolutely beautiful and everyone around seems so happy to be there. Also the food in Suzhou and Hangzou has been absolutely incredible. I think its has been the best food all trip and I feel privileged to be spoiled with such great meals. The shopping in Hangzou has also been really great, very different stuff than in the Tianjin or Beijing. Hangzou is definitely one of the areas of China that I want to come back and visit, very beautiful here and there seems to be a very leisure mentality around town and many fun things to do. Suzhou and Hangzou both have been incredible times but seems to be leading up to Shanghai. I am very excited for Shanghai, we have only been here a few hours but the city definitely has a very modern and upscale feel to it. The energy of the city feels like that of Chicago and New York, very excited to tour the city tomorrow! Good night for now! Two days left in China, gonna have some adventures!
