Hangzhou is the political, economic, cultural and financial capital of Zhejiang Province. It is also a kernel of the Urban Agglomeration on the Yangtze River Delta, a vital node of the Ninghang Eco-economic Zone, and a hub of Chinese e-commerce.

The city first acquired a name over 2,200 years ago thanks to the rise of the first emperor in China, Qin Shi Huang. It later became the capital of the Wuyue State and Southern Song, and is known as one of China's Seven Ancient Capitals. Stunning scenery earns it the reputation as "Heaven on Earth". West Lake and its surroundings are home to countless natural and cultural relics. Highlights of Hangzhou include West Lake Culture, Liangzhu Culture, Silk Culture and Tea Culture.
