Lingyin temple, commonly translated as "Temple of the Soul's Retreat" is one of the largest and wealthiest temples in China. Despite some damage inflicted by red guards during the Cultural Revolution, the temple and grounds escaped much of the wholesale destruction that other temples in China suffered because of the protection of Premier Zhou Enlai. Today the temple is thriving, though most of the thousands of visitors who come do so for sightseeing and not for religious reasons.

Great local guide with fluent English

Alex took me and my friend around in Hangzhou for a day trip from Shanghai. We visited the west lake, green tea plantations, the celadon museum, and the Leifeng tower. Taylor spoke very fluent English. He also knew a lot of culture background and interesting anecdotes behind the sight seeing places. I would strongly recommend him to tour in Hangzhou.

Best way to experience the best of Hangzhou from Shanghai

Our private guide, Bonnie, took us to the most beautiful and authentic spots in Hangzhou! An ancient Buddhist temple next to a mountain with many holy statues carved in the rock, picturesque tea villages with tea plants in terraces embracing the mountains to the horizon, and the grand finale at the lake with the lotus plants and forested beaches, a great day indeed!
