years, Hangzhou is one of the cradles of China's
civilization. Hangzhou used to be the capital

the Five Dynasties period. It developed rapidly
in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) to become the nation's
cultural, economic and political centre in the

Dynasty (1279-1368), Marco Polo (1254-1324, Venetian
traveller to the court of Kublai Khan) described
it as the most graceful city in the world.
