9. Do you recommend driver/guide (driver and guide are the same person) tour or driver and guide tour (driver and guide are separate)?
We would highly recommend driver and guide tour (based on 2 people),There were some serious traffic accident caused by a driver guide because the driver guide was giving the explanation to tourists and driving at the same time from another travel agency in Hangzhou in the past. Besides that, 1, the traffic in china is not very satisfying, the quality of the tour experience will not be as good as the one guide and one driver option. 2, not easy to find a parking lot at at the senic area in hangzhou. Driver/guide tour, have to find a parking lot first then start the tour. Driver and guide tour, the driver drop you off at the entrance of the senic spot starting the tour with guide. Driver and guide tour options saves you a lot of time if you only have one day in hangzhou or tight on schedule. Time is money!!!
10. Which water town is the best near Hangzhou?
Wuzhen is the best Water town you should visit during your stay in Hangzhou since it's a historic water town which lies in the center of a triangle formed by Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai.It is 80 km from Hangzhou, with its thousands of years of history and culture; its honest and beautiful scenery of rivers and lakes; its unique flavor of the cuisines, colorful folk festivals, deep heritage and timeless lifestyle, Wuzhen has become a living fossil of ancient oriental civilization.
