Hangzhou Festivals

Several of Hangzhou’s festivals and events are centered around West Lake, like the International Tourism Festival, Fireworks Festival, Osmanthus Festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival Evening Party and West Lake Expo.

There is also the Tidal Bore Festival in September, when visitors come to see the world’s largest tidal wave.

Our Hangzhou tours can be easily adapted to take in a festival or event in the prosperous imperial retreat of Hangzhou.
