Throughout the day, we tried well-known Hangzhou dishes at the snack bar Haozhekou, the century-old Hangzhou Restaurant and Yao Bude Gaozu Shenjian. We visited landmark architecture Urban Balcony to get a feel of the marvelous Qiantang River, and stopped by at Hangzhou Urban Planning Exhibition Hall to see the future plan of information technology development for Hangzhou city. Southern Song Dynasty Imperial Street is one of the top places to go to in Hangzhou. Dazzling lights from all types of shops along the street against ancient architecture showed the perfect combination of the present and the past.
