DAY 1: Watching the city from the outside to the inside

The airport is located about 45 minutes away from the city.  The ride along the way was nice as we got to see how Hangzhou's development design change along the way.  You see that there's a lot of three or four-storey apartments or houses in the outer city area.  They have a liking to decorate their outer walls with patterned tiles.  Keep your eyes open along the way, and you'll catch very specific styles that they have in their buildings.


Upon entering Hangzhou city, you'll cross over Qiantang River.  This is where the new urban development is taking place.  High rise, convention building, offices and an urban park.

And not long after that, you'll reach Hangzhou city centre.  Much like the older parts of Kuala Lumpur.  You'll definitely notice the swarm of cyclists in the city!
