[Travel] The Fantastic Family Vacation on Spring Season at Beijing, Hangzhou & Shanghai, China in April 2014! @Day 6

by - Sunday, August 10, 2014

Morning on sixth day, we were go to Longjing Tea Plantation. The tea farm in Hangzhou is the hometown of the number one Chinese green tea – Longjing.

Longjing literally "Dragon Well” is a name applied to a number of locations and products from the southwestern region of the city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, China. Most notably, the name refers to the titular Dragon Well itself, located near Longjing village in Xihu District, as well as the area encompassing the well and the longjing tea famously grown there.

A man is showing to us the way to cook tea leaves.

The Dragon Well region consists of a number of villages, tea plantations, tea houses, parks, and a temple. The area is popular for tea drinking and buying as well as visiting the Eight Scenes of the Dragon Well (龙井八景).

Now the tourism of Longjing Village is being developed and the tourist number is boosting.

First time, I drink green tea are not really have bitter taste. I like this tea and we also can eat Longjing leaf after drink it. It’s so delicious.

Then, we were going to Shanghai, China by bus and this journey takes almost 3 hours. But we take our last lunch at Hangzhou before continue the journey. Shanghai really busy city among the China.

After we arrive at Shanghai, China – we continue our tour at Oriental Pearl TV Tower (2nd Deck). The Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower is a TV tower in Shanghai, China. Its location at the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district by the side of Huangpu River, opposite The Bund, makes it a distinct landmark in the area. The tower is brightly lit in different LED sequences at night.

I totally scare when I try to stand at the glass floor. I can see so clear the view at below the glass floor – everything looks so small but it is fun too.

The tower has fifteen observatory levels. The highest (known as the Space Module) is at 350 m (1148 ft). The lower levels are at 263 m (863 ft) (Sightseeing Floor) and at 90 m (295 ft) (Space City). There is a revolving restaurant at the 267 m (876 ft) level. The project also contains exhibition facilities, restaurants and a shopping mall. There is also a 20-room hotel called the Space Hotel between the two large spheres. The upper observation platform has an outside area with a glass floor.

Before we check in room, we take our dinner first. We were stay at Rayfont Shanghai Xinhui Hotel for 2 nights. This hotel room is like condominium concept for me because it’s have corridor and we got room at 27 level, so high.
