Hangzhou (Hangchow) lies in the north of Zhejiang province, in the Qiantangjiang delta, about 40km/25mi west of Hangzhou Bay, at 12012'E and 3015'N.
The rather tranqil town of Hangzhou, popularly known as ''Silk City'', is one of China's most beautiful towns; in the words of the well-known Chinese proverb ''In Heaven is Paradise, here on earth are Suzhou and Hangzhou''.
The famous ''Dragon Well'' tea (Longjing cha) which is hand-picked twice a year is grown in this region. More Hangzhou info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangzhou

Hefang Old Street is a historical cultural street area located at the foot of the scenic Wushan Hill of southern Hangzhou and quite close to the famous West Lake.
As usual, snack food widely available.
