Hangzhou is known as the home of silk, the essential thread that weaves ancient ties between Hangzhou, and the rest of China, along the Silk Road route to Europe. Hangzhou's silk production gives the city a key role in the historic East-meets-West connection of the Silk Road.

Capital of the Zhejiang Province and one of China's seven ancient capitals, Hangzhou is nicknamed 'Heaven on Earth'. The city is the perfect combination of history and modernity, nature and culture. Luscious green hills surround the scenic panoramas of West Lake and over 60 important cultural relic sites, pagodas, temples and traditiona building styles.
