Xihu Tiandi

Written by Kelly PangUpdated Feb. 3, 2021

Situated at the southern bank of West Lake, Hangzhou Xihu Tiandi is a leisure destination embracing the deep history and culture of the city of Hangzhou. Combining the superlative natural beauty with modern living elements, Xihu Tiandi has become a brand new landmark in Hangzhou, whereboutiques sell international brands, up-market restaurants serve a variety of local flavors and bars fill the area; it’s a blend of nature and fashion.

Highlights of Xihu Tiandi

Built in April 2003, Xihu Tiandi covers an area of 50,000 square meters (538,196 square feet), with 60 percent of it being a garden area. As a matter of fact, Xihu Tiandiis partly hidden in the garden area, and it is near Yongjin Pond, south of West Lake, and it’s very close to the Orioles Singing in the Willows, with a very relaxing atmosphere. The architectural buildings of Xihu Tiandi fully take advantage of modern and traditional elements: they are decorated with carved beams and painted rafters as well as white walls and dark gray roof tiles matching one another in tranquil elegance, and you can appreciate the fine outdoor scenery through French windows.

A number of cafes, clubs, restaurants, entertainment venues and stores are also available in Xihu Tiandi, and you can enjoy a sip of tea in Yichayizuo Teahouse when you are tired.

After visiting Xihu Tiandi, you are also recommended to visit Suti Causeway, Leifeng Tower, the Three Pools Mirroring the Moon and the Pagoda of Six Harmonies during your Hangzhou trip.

Background Information of Xihu Tiandi

Invested in by the Hong Kong based Shui On Group and designed by an American architect called BenjaminWood (who also designed Shanghai Xintiandi), Xihu Tiandi is very different from Shanghai Xintiandi in style. Shanghai Xintiandi has a rich commercial ambience, which is a masterpiece of a combination of Western and Chinese architectural styles. Xihu Tiandi brings the mountain and water scenery of Hangzhou into full play, which has become a magnet for the urban trendsetters and petty bourgeoisies. As a matter of fact, a fine view of theWestLakescenery presents itself before youanywhere you place yourself at Xihu Tiandi.

In addition, Xihu Tiandi is very convenient for shopping owing to the neighboring Darunfa Supermarket in the east and Baida Shopping Center in the west.
