We had a very pleasant time in Hangzhou. Ms. Apple met us at the hotel and took us by a private car to ride the bullet train to Hangzhou from Shanghai. The business cabin was comfortable and semi private. We were met by a nice van in Hangzhou and began our journey with a bountiful lunch with local cuisines, we had the most delicious duck soup ever! We visited an ancient temple in the city, then walked around the most famous lake in China, the West Lake. Ms. Apple gave us the history of the lake, many stories with famous people and poems that were written about the lake, we took a boat ride to a small island to get a good view of the lake. The lake was huge, surrounded by willows and beautiful lotus flowers. Then we visited a local shopping district, with an oldest herbal store and many local snacks and souvenir shops. The tour ended with Ms. Apple dropping us off at the hotel. Ms. Apple was attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable. We had a memorable day with Ms. Apple and Hangzhou.
