Humane WangHumane WangHumane Wang

Wang's Villa , a famous villa in the West Lake area, was formerly named the Wang Yutai Teahouse. Built in 1927, it belonged to Wang Tiyu, a tea dealer from Anhui Province. The villa, when finished, surpassed all its counterparts in the area with its unique style. At the time, Wang Yutai opened a teahouse on Huaihai Road, Shanghai. In the meantime, he set up a tea factory in Qiantang, Zhejiang Province. His business became prosperous and he soon found himself a millionaire. His villa thus quickly gained reputation among the rich and the distinguished who gathered in the villa to sing and dance. Surrounded on three sides by the West Lake on which flowers and trees were reflected, the villa was brimming with music and joy for a time.

It was not until 1958 that Wang's Villa ,together with Xizhao Mountain, part of Sujia Mountain, Xizhao Temple and Baiyun Nunnery, was rebuilt into No.2 Reception House for Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee, covering an area of 210,000 square kilometers. Since then, it began to accommodate cadres from Central Government. Former Chairman Mao Zedong lived here for 27 times, holding important diplomatic activities, reading and working. He later referred to it as his second home. The Reception House began its opering up in September 1979 and was renamed Zhejiang Xizi Guesthouse. Comrade Cheng Yun inscribed the new title for the hotel.

A large number of ancient spots can be found in Wang Zhuang like the Leifeng Tower, Xizhao Temple, Baiyun Nunnery, Matchmaker's temple and the Fishing Platform of Qian Long, one of the emperors in Qing Dynasty. Having stood up to ups and downs in the past 70 years which has granted it experience and vitality, Wang's Villa , the bright pearl in the West Lake, will surely shine more brilliantly than ever.

In addition, Mrs.Wang was good at playing musical instruments.

Chrysanthemum GardenWang's Villa ,featuring delicate pavilions, halls, chambers, towers, ponds and rockeries, was regarded as the villa with the best novelty at that time.

West Lake
Three sides of the lake are surrounded by verdant mountains and one side of it prosperous city. The beauty of the Westlake lies in the harmonious combination of humanistic and natural scenery. After a large-scale reconstruction, the current West Lake has recovered the panorama over 300 years before when it reached the most prosperous period in history, combining delicacy, elegance and wild natural interest in harmony.

Ten Scenes of the West Lake
Hangzhou's most famous scenic sight. Technically, there are "10 Scenes of the West Lake" and "10 New Scenes," but they are overrated, and often seasonal (Snowfall Over Broken Bridge, etc). Rather than make a checklist and walking back and forth looking for them, simply spend a clear day wandering the circumference of the lake and the causeways, take a ferry to the islands, and you will probably cover most of the sites anyway. The "West Lake" itself can be divided into countless smaller sites, from Mr. Guo's villa to "Orioles Singing in the Willows". The "West Lake Scenic Area" itself is very large. This section only covers areas in the immediate vicinity of the lake. Other spots are covered in later sections.
