What to expect
Pick up service is arranged at your hotel lobby or Hangzhou train station. First, visit the Chinese Hangzhou Cuisine Museum, which is the only themed museum with food in China. This place makes us starving!" This comment in the visitors' book left by an American speaks for many visitors of Hangzhou Cuisine Museum. The museum consists of three sections the exhibition zone, the experience zone and the operation zone. The experience zone and operation zone are the main parts. The museum exhibits some 110 cultural relics related to the Hangzhou cuisine, a branch of the broader Zhejiang cuisine, as well as nearly 200 lifelike artificial dishes. The museum also features Hangzhou cuisine workshops and restaurants to demonstrate the food culture of Hangzhou to a greater extent. Next stop is a visit to the Local Wet Market, which was traditionally selling the freshest produce, meat and other food products, because a majority of the goods sold are locally grown in the region.
