Orientation Services

Orientation Services

Our services here fall in to three sections:

As early as possible, often when the move is only a possibility, we take you on an City Tour, during which our Orientation consultant visits the various residential areas, passing schools, shops, hospitals and so forth. We also go a little into the basic geography and history of the region, and discuss the practicalities of living in Hang Zhou. We can also schedule specific school appointments  - the programme will be devised to suit your specific needs and requirements.

Once the family are here to stay we then focus on getting you familiar with the main streets and shopping areas. We like to point out that we receive no commissions from any of the shops or services that we recommend - our advice is based on our own personal experience and satisfied client feed-back.

--West Lake is located in the western area of Hangzhou City's historic center. There are dozens of lakes called West Lake worldwide, but "West Lake" usually refers to the Hangzhou West Lake. It is surrounded by mountains on three sides with the capacity about 14,290,000 cubic meters. The beauty of the West Lake lies in its charm that survives the change of seasons in a year and of hours in a day. Among its beautiful sights, the most famous sites are the Ten Sights in West Lake and the Ten New Sights in West Lake, which are known as the Double-Ten Sights in West Lake.

West Lake is not only famous for its picturesque landscape, it is also associated with many scholars, national heroes and revolutionary martyrs, thus embracing many aspects of Chinese culture. In addition, many ancient buildings, stone caves and engraved tablets in surrounding areas are among the most cherished national treasures of China, with significant artistic value.


-One of the most significant seneries in Xi Hu is Three Pools Mirroring the Moon, It is the largest isle in the West Lake. The isle is elegant, harmonizing nature and man-made landscape. The beauty of the scenic spot is the moon in the sky, in the water and in the heart of onlookers. The three stone miniature pagodas standing in the lake off the isle are presumably the best place for moon viewing. On the night of the Autumn Moon Festival, the isle and its three miniature pagodas are the best attraction for moon spectators.
The view of the three stone pagodas is printed on one yuan¡¯s Chinese RMB paper currency.

- Hangzhou Xihu Tiandi, located at the southern bank of West Lake, is a leisure destination embracing the deep history and culture of the city of Hangzhou. Combining the superlative natural beauty in this area with modern living elements, Xihu Tiandi aims to create a public space. Boutiques selling international brands, up-market restaurants serving variety of local flavors, bars fill the area.

Capitalizing on the area's stunning natural beauty, Xihu Tiandi's designers innovatively combined modern elements and Hangzhou's traditional garden architecture by perfectly utilizing large-scale glass, which allows the setting's natural wonder to be fully on display for visitors to enjoy year-round. Virtually anywhere you place yourself at Xihu Tiandi, a glorious view of the West Lake scenery presents itself before you.

Most of the old houses have been transformed into attractive commercial venues- international standard restaurants, clubs and cultural spots -while maintaining their original charm.

A leisurely walk at night around this area will prove a surreal experience. Most of all it is one of the best place to enjoy the night scenery of the West Lake.

10. Cafes in Hangzhou normally fit a Hangzhou norm and do not always resemble a cafe in the West. Places like Liangan and UBC serve Western food, which is pretty inedible to a Western palette. Coffee is expensive and usually made over a candle, more for novelty than for good coffee. Some of the more 'international' style cafes are listed here.

Costa Coffee, located in the West Lake Tiandi, serves coffee drinks, sandwiches and pastries in a suave atmosphere with free Wi-Fi. Try to score one of the incredibly comfortable couches.

Linglong Town, located on Nanshan Road to the west of most of the bars. Has large smoothies that are excellent for hot days. The restaurant also has many types of tea and good-tasting Taiwanese fare.

Jamaica Coffee, in West Lake Tiandi, is owned by a Spanish company and has high quality coffee and tea and some snacks.

Fotoyard, Nanshan Rd and Qianwangci, is managed by a bunch of photographers who are better at photos than managing a cafe, but the pizza is good, and the coffee by Illy. When the weather permits, it's an open air cafe and quite nice in the spring time.

Chamate, Wulin Square / Yellow Dragon Stadium / West Lake Tiandi (south), is a Taiwanese version of Starbucks where tea replaces coffee as the beverage of choice. An excellent place to sample a wide variety of green and oolong teas from the comprehensive picture menu. Each tea is served in its own characteristic style teapot along with plentiful hot (mineral) water. If the tea isn't enough, shaved ice red bean dessert, stinky tofu and Wi-Fi access are all available too.

11. Life in Hangzhou is colorful, if you want to entertain , some bars or clubs with different tastes and styles are suggested as follows:

You To, Shuguang Rd. One of the most successful bars in Hangzhou, run by a man who has made several bars popular. You To is busy every day with a local drinking crowd. Loud live music, busy atmosphere, and cheerful, friendly staff.
