Hangzhou, is the capital and largest city of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China. The entire administrative areas have a population of about 9 million people. The city of Hangzhou has a population of 4 million. Hangzhou is one of the most important tourist cities in China, famous for its beauty and historical and cultural heritages. It is the political, economic and cultural centre of Zhejiang province.

A core city of the Yangtze River Delta, Hangzhou has a position on the Hangzhou Bay 180 kilometres (110 mi) southwest of Shanghai. It has been one of the most renowned and prosperous cities of China for much of the last 1 000 years, due in part to its beautiful natural scenery. The city´s West Lake is its best-known attraction. Hangzhou is situated at the southern end of the Grand Canal of China, on the plain of the mid-lower reaches of the Yangtze River.

It was the capital of the Wuyue Kingdom from 907 to 978 during the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms Period. Arab merchants lived in Hangzhou during the Song dynasty, due to the fact that the ocean going trade passages took precedence over land trade during this time. There were also Arabic inscriptions from the 1200s and 1300s. During the Yuan dynasty, Muslims were persecuted through the banning of their traditions, and they participated in revolts against the Mongols.

Hangzhou has a large student population with many higher education institutions based in the city.
