Adam Kaupert checks out the top Hangzhou activities
Hangzhou silk is renowned all over the word for its high quality and purity. It is one of the city’s chief exports alongside longjing tea. The Chinese national silk museum is here and is an unlikely subject for a museum but I had a great time while visiting and actually learned lot about silk and its history. Its other chief export, tea, also has a museum dedicated to its uniquely Chinese history. This is a terrific resource for travelling in China and of course comes with the official Adam Kaupert seal of approval:
As usual I utilized the Adam Kaupert scam style of travel which, in case you didn’t know is my own personal Adam Kaupert travel blog acronym which stands for Shoes, camera, attitude and map or Adam Kaupert scam production style of travel.

If you are in Hangzhou anytime soon I highlyrecommend the Mt. Putuoshan Scenic area for some breathtaking views. This spot is considered sacred by Buddhists and was once home to a massive Community of Buddhist monks. It is considered sacred for good reason, this is a great place to reflect. A pond called Red Carp Pond sis nearby and is a great spot for a picnic or just more reflection.
