    "Go to Hangzhou to visit friends on May Day. After learning online that the traffic in West Lake is comparable to the zombie siege every year, he quickly switched the target attractions and selected the Huajiantang Hotel in Xixi and Xixi. It turns out that this decision is quite nice. When the West Lakers were crowded, Xixi was beautiful alone. We entered the game late in the afternoon and it was raining that day. There were almost no people. My friend's family has been settled in Hangzhou for many years, and I have never been to Xixi. When I visited, I felt that there were so few people. It was so cool. Xixi is a wetland, with a large area, roughly divided into three parts of the West and Middle East. On the left is a free attraction, which is said to be not fun. The middle is mainly a wetland park, you have to buy tickets to enter. On the right is the free attractions such as Green Dike Fudi. It is fun and connected to the wetland park. There is an access control in the park in the middle, and you can enter and exit with a ticket. So you can play from the park to the outside of the park if you want to save money. You can only play in the East District. In the wetland park, there are 80 tickets for one person, 60 electric tickets for one person, the boat must sit, follow the waterway around the park for a week, an hour, there are four land attractions in the middle, each can be disembarked, after the tour, wait for the next boat, board the boat and set off to the next stop. Unfortunately, we went late, and we didn't have the opportunity to take the boat for a whole week. After disembarking at the second attraction, we walked while playing, and then took the electric car back to the original point. The whole trip was pleasant and the air was fresh, the cool breeze and drizzle were very pleasant. Everyone is very satisfied. Also recommended is Huajiantang, there is a quiet path to and from Xixi Park, a good walk, the May 1st premium is very small, the internal courtyard and lawn are very beautiful, the gifts and acquisitions are more, it is worth it."
    Hangzhou.Xixi Wetland Park Area
    8.7km from downtown
    Highlights: Xixi National Wetland Park is located in the west of Hangzhou, only 6 kilometers away from Wulin Gate in the main urban area of ​​Hangzhou and 5 kilometers away from West Lake. Xixi originated in the Han and Jin Dynasties, developed in the Tang and Song Dynasties, flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, declined in the Republic of China, and revived in the contemporary era. In the history of Hangzhou, there was a saying that "West Lake, Xixi, and Xiling" were collectively called "Three Wests". Xixi in history covered an area of ​​about 60 square kilometers, and the total area of ​​Xixi wetland under protection is now about 10.38 square kilometers.

Xixi is the only rare wetland in China that integrates urban wetlands, agricultural wetlands, and cultural wetlands. It is also one of the earliest national wetland parks in the country. Xixi Wetland contains five major thematic cultural elements of "Buddhism, seclusion, vulgarity, leisure, and wildness", and its zoning characteristics are "seclusion in the south, vulgarity in the north, bustling in the east, and tranquility in the west". The essence of Xixi culture is "one garden and five places": Hongyuan, the premiere site of Yue Opera, the sacred place for poets, the birthplace of Water Margin, the place where literati enjoy themselves, and the concentrated place of folk customs. Xixi has a 300-acre plum forest, planted with many varieties such as Jiangmei, Gongfen, Zhusha, Luye, Yudie, and Meirenmei. A good place to enjoy plum blossoms in Xixi is the Meizhu Leisure Area, which is concentrated in Meizhu Villa and Xixi Meishu. Many plum blossoms are also planted along the Meidi from Zhoujia Village to Gaozhuang. From November and December to March of the following year, different varieties of plum blossoms bloom one after another. "Looking for plum blossoms in the winding water and exploring plum blossoms in a boat" is a unique way of enjoying plum blossoms in Xixi.

    "The scenery is good and the tickets are not expensive. The disadvantage is that there is no distance prompt on the road sign. Slides and go-karts cannot carry long rod-shaped objects and must be stored in the bag. If you can't collect trekking poles, you can only stay. There is no advance reminder."

    Hangzhou.Liangzhu Cultural Village
    15.5km from downtown
    Highlights: Liangzhu Culture and Art Center is located in Liangzhu Cultural Village, Yuhang District, Hangzhou City. It is an outstanding work designed and constructed by Tadao Ando, a well-known Japanese architect. He integrates Eastern aesthetics with Western architectural theories to express the concept of "emotion-based" space. The building fully integrates the building and the surrounding environment. In addition to the cherry trees planted between the water garden and the river, a large forest is also planted on the back of the building, making the building stand quietly in the nature. In order to blend in with the surrounding environment and echo the slope of the large roof, the landscape on the south side forms an undulating garden with a triangular geometry. Every year when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, it always attracts a large number of tourists. The culture and art center is divided into three functional blocks. The south side is the exhibition building with the function of the art gallery, the north side is the classroom building with educational functions such as training rooms, and the middle is the cultural building with the functions of the reading hall and library. Arranged under the big roof in a three-character layout. The four gardens in the Art Center are connected to each other and become the symbolic garden of Liangzhu Cultural Village. Various art activities are regularly held here, and it has become a temple of art in the town.
