Kate and I took the bus for a lovely afternoon to Chenghuang Pagoda. This is definitely my favorite pagoda in Hangzhou—the building is absolutely beautiful and huge, which is nestled in the middle of scenic lush green mountains. The museum inside had incredible art and displays of Chinese culture. The whole area is very breathtaking; coming here is a great way to absorb traditional Chinese ambience. The fact that it is away from the hustle and bustle part of the city and in a quieter and scenic location makes it one of my favorite areas in Hangzhou.
