  • Take the path round the back of the Library - there's a lovely landscaped area to sit and eat a picnic/throw a frisbee round
    Things to do

Love it. It is Zhijiang campus of Zhejiang University. Compared its other campus, it is more quite and of nature beauty, located in the hill. And especially its library, the half-way down the hill!!!

We've travelled to Hangzhou because my son is studying there for a year abroad. They have a good international program (he's studying Chinese language). His room is larger than his dorm room in the states and he's had a great time. Of interest, there's a great noodle stand where you can get lunch for about 4 rmb. I don't know if you can negotiate with the vendors if you don't speak Chinese (luckily my son does).
