Hangzhou is an interesting mashup of a place. From the research we did, it seems like a small village on a big lake, with a neverending forest section that we'd be staying in, surrounded by hills and such lush trees, a calm respite from standard hectic China. But, like...Hangzhou has 9 million residents. I had never heard of it before planning this trip, and it was flipping TWO Philadelphias. And bigger than New York and London! Damn there are so many Chinese people! So even this like 'small village' that I hadn't even heard of before this trip is a gigantic freaking city! Luckily, we were indeed staying in the west side of West Lake, the part that is all forests and much less people. And it's beautiful. We went into the crazy busy downtown, but West Lake is the real draw of a visit here.
