Riverside Street blends culture, nature and charm in Hangzhou

Complexes housing restaurants, gyms and shops are everywhere in Hangzhou, but Xiaohezhi Street is one of the few that blends the natural and cultural landscapes. Here, restaurants, flower stores and fashion boutiques are housed in traditional black-roofed, white-walled houses along the Xiaohe River, a branch of the Grand Canal. Criss-crossed with lanes and bridges along the river, visitors can do everything from experiencing traditional country life to consulting traditional Chinese medicine therapists to tasting French pastries.

Despite its tourist bustle and trendy renovated traditional buildings, scenic Xiaohezhi Street is still a living residential area, with a long history. People have lived on this commercial and residential street since as early as the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907). With the recent mild and sunny days, locals put tables outside to play poker, Chinese chess and mahjong, eat dinner or just to enjoy a watermelon.
