Hangzhou news: Local lane takes on new life during holiday

China’s big cities are starting to feel a whole lot emptier as residents return to their hometowns for the Chinese Lunar New Year, which started in the end of January. The same can’t be said for Shiwukui Lane in Hangzhou. This bustling commercial and residential strip is a hive of activity during the holiday. Its grocery market is drawing shoppers looking for nianhuo (New Year goods), while its many eateries and restaurants are luring diners with their tempting Hangzhou treats.
Shiwukui Lane links the city’s Drum Tower and Chenghuang Hill, and was traditionally a residential area. It used to house many families known for their kungfu skills. According to local lore, the lane produced 10 martial arts scholars who attained the imperial rank of wukui. Thus, with shi meaning “ten,” we can see the origins of the lane’s name.

Choose Hangzhou for your Chinese studies and have real nice nianhuo!
