Greet your guide at your Shanghai hotel and ride the bullet train to Hangzhou. Begin with a visit to Lingyin Temple (upgrade to include entrance fees) with its rich Buddhist carvings, many of which date back more than 1,000 years.
Next, continue to a tea farm to taste some of the Longjing (Dragon Well) green tea for which Hangzhou is famous. After a lunch on Hangzhou specialties (included if you upgrade), learn about tea culture as you hike through the rice fields.
No visit to Hangzhou would be complete without exploring UNESCO-listed West Lake. Soak up the views as you wander among lotus, pagodas, and bridges.
Finally, shop for souvenirs on Hefang Street before your guide escorts you back to your Shanghai hotel.
