  • Get off at Wulin square station subway 1 (3), and from 30-40 minute taxi ride and arrives at the China tea Museum. According to the taxi driver, this area many people come seeking a better quality of Longjing tea is. You can learn the relationships between China and Japan at the Museum. I think you do not understand Chinese, Kanji through Japan to explain, but I understand. We stayed in the Museum about two hours. Tea has spread around the Museum, and even the air feels fresh. Beautiful views from high places of tea plantations, is a relaxing place. Taxi (and stop even the sometimes reserved other guests) not too much around here, called the taxi using the wechat. You secure the means of return not familiar moving in China have waiting in the taxi, is recommended.

  • Beautiful and interesting National Museum of tea. Too bad that when I went there was no one who could show me the art of tea or let me taste some tea (which normally is possible). Well structured, General information but complete. Beautiful plantation outside the Museum. Recommended visit!
