Nearly every Zhejiang itinerary features Hangzhou, a handsome provincial capital and China's top destination for domestic tourism. Formerly the national capital, this busy city remains best known for its silk and tea, but most visitors come for access to the picturesque and World Heritage-listed West Lake. Another highlight of a Zhejiang vacation is a string of charming water towns filled with restored Ming- and Qing-era architecture. Meanwhile, hundreds of islands accessible off the mainland boast notable Buddhist sites and ancient villages unmarred by the ravages of time.
