Hangzhou
Been fed with information on how beautiful this small ancient town is.

Unfortunately, for one who participated those package group tour will always be denied from explored this ancient town thoroughly as it would make sense economically to lump the visit to this town, with neighbouring Suzhou and the metropolitan of Shanghai.

And the fact that this town is famed for its tea production, it's inevitable for such package tours to be brought to one of those “specialty” outlets for some tea-sampling session a.k.a. “time-wasting” session (for me).

杭州
一直以来就听闻杭州是个“人间天堂”。

但一般来说参加旅行团的话,只要是有杭州的行程就必定会把它同毗邻的苏州和“东方巴黎”-上海连贯成一个配套 (对业者来说在推销给消费者是显得较划算)。

也因杭州市是以产茶叶(龙井茶)而名,难免带游人去那些“茶品专卖铺”来“丰富知识”(浪费时间,才是真地吧?)

First impression
It was cold and freezing when I reached Hangzhou with my friend.

Good thing the cold jacket proven handy despite the initial thought that it might be useless given the fluctuating climate change.

As what my friend mentioned, this ancient town is spick and span because the cleaners will clear the refuse "every 10 minutes" so as compared to Guangzhou and other major cities, Hangzhou appeared to look much cleaner based on the cleanliness of the public bus stops.

杭州第一印象
冷!这就是我对这“人间天堂”的第一印象。

应该是当天下雨的情况只觉得天气超冷,幸好带了羽绒大衣就不至于被冻坏。

街道的整洁真地让大家印象中其他大陆城市的外观成了强烈对比,据说这的打扫员工会每十分钟清理自个所管辖的范围, 可见这里的这些劳苦功高的“环保英雄”真地发自内心来维护杭州市的市容。

但要以什么标准来衡量一个城市的整洁度呢?察看当地的巴士站就晓得咯。

So how is it? Do you agree with me this is cleanest Chinese city? 如何?确实是全大陆最干净的城市吗?
BREAKFAST 杭州的早点
I always make it a point to sample some of the breakfast stuff during my outing and here in Hangzhou I got myself savoured the buns and the Shangdong-styled pancake (Got the permission before taking these shots).

出游最大的享受就是品尝道地的早点 (这次是征求店家的同意才照地这些相片)
