Fun Children's Attractions
Along with its many more serious attractions — it's famous for its fine pagodas and temples — Hangzhou also offers a variety of fun kid-centric points of interest. Few youngsters would want to miss the opportunity to visit Hello Kitty Park, a theme park located an hour away in Anji, focused exclusively on one of Japan's most famous animated characters. The first of its kind to open outside of Japan (and the biggest so far), you can enjoy exploring six areas, each with its own uniquely themed kids rides, character meet and greets, and, of course, merchandise.
The Hangzhou Zoo is another attraction that's sure to please kids. Located just a short distance from West Lake, the 50-acre site is home to more than 2,000 creatures representing some 200 species. While the highlight, of course, are the zoo's adorable giant pandas, you'll enjoy the opportunity to see other native animals, including South China tigers, golden monkeys, red-crowned cranes, and Asian elephants.
Finally, consider taking the kids to the National Wetland Museum of China,near the Xixi National Wetland Park. Here, you'll be able to experience numerous displays related to the area's unique environment, as well as wetland area's from other regions around the globe. Other notable features you'll discover as you wander the sprawling site are displays of historic dragon boats, a traditional fishing village, rare lotus flowers, and plenty of bird watching. There's also an on-site restaurant.
