There are several campuses and we went to the one with the Law School. It is very beautiful in a forest like area but also very hilly. Located about 40 minutes from downtown. Not good for someone with limited mobility.

Strictly speaking, Zhejiang University is not your typical tourist destination but you'll learn a lot about the history of Chinese education system, science & technology if you do visit one of many campuses in Hangzhou. At ~120 years old, it is one of the oldest...More
