ISAC Hangzhou Food Tour
When you arrive in a foreign country, it is fun to explore the new culture and the new food! ISAC has a vibrant community of foreign teachers in Hangzhou, and we invite more teachers to join our Hangzhou food tour. We shall meet at the ISAC office and do a short workshop. After that we will visit the Hangzhou City Planning Exhibition Hall and Hangzhou City Library; you don't find these two places in most travel books, but they are very worth visiting especially for new comers to Hangzhou. We will then go to the restaurants and vendors which Trevor James visited in Hangzhou.
