Hubao Spring is located in a small park with a few small lakes, a teahouse and chinese pavillions. The area is really nice, there arre beautiful sceneries a bamboo forest and a pavilion with stone carvings of arhats. Nice thing was, that there weren´t many people. The spring itself is just a small lake with weird modern tiger statue, so... More

The first time I came here with a friend, we had planned it to be an hour or so walk around a relaxing park...what we didn't realize was that if you took a turn up one of the path of stairs (surrounded by bamboo trees) after the sculpture of "Dreaming of the Tiger Spring," it would become a completely different...

Hupao Spring is famed for its very water for making classic green tea, as told by the tour guide of Hangzhou. I was expecting to walk around in somewhere cool in Hangzhou this summer, then Hupao Spring jumped into my sight. After the pleasant journey, I am awared that people of all ages highly praise it after tasting a cup... More

Not sure what percentage of first-time tourists coming to this place, but this is my first time among my three visits in the past decades. And I regretted coming late. I truly enjoyed walking on the half-mile long upslope trail to the mountain spring. Filling out my empty water bottle with the spring water. Locals lined up fetching spring water... More

Walk into a beautiful wood land, decorated with cheap plastic birds. Then walk on to the sun and moon pool, which do look beautiful, but why is the water a chemical blue colour? Up to tiger spring, Most of the small spring is covered by a giant plastic tiger!! Then to the statue of the dreaming tigers constructed in 1983,... More

This is where that legendary water comes from which can enhance a glass of Xihu Longjing 西湖龙井茶 and bring out its most subtle and stunning qualities. I've drunk it here and I've drunk it in Longjing Village up on the mountain. Exceedingly worthwhile if you are into green tea. The scenery is pretty, as is the small waterfall. But the... More

Hupao Spring is an interesting place to visit. Small waterfalls can be seen. It was fascinating to see the local people carrying Jerry cans to fill it up with a piped water spring. We were told that an excellent beverage was Hupao spring water with Longjing Tea, they go hand in hand. Enjoyed our walk along the footpaths of Hupao.

Tiger Spring was one of my favourite places in Hangzhou. As soon as you enter there you can hear wildlife and water trickling in the forrest, and it provides a much needed break from the hectic city. The area is also easy to navigate, as there is a single path up to the Tiger Spring and associated attractions. I recommend... More

try a taste of the water used by the king in the old day. Just another park like many other parks in Hangzhou. It has a natural water spring (not hot spring), and is named as the 3rd best natural water spring in the world (in China, they meant). Get in, walk up the path, bring with you an empty... More
