The night market of Wushan Square in Hangzhou (Photo Essays)

Wushan Square Hhanghzou

It’s funny, here at SDC we published 139 articles so far and none of them talks about Hangzhou. Why I think it’s funny? Because Hangzhou is the city where I spent more time in China, is the city where I’ve learned to speak Chinese (well… cha bu duo), is the city where I took more photos and is the city where this website was born.

So, after more of two years of article, I guess it’s time to talk a bit about Hangzhou. The problem is that I have so much to say and I don’t know where to start… so today I’ll let the images speak for me.

This article is a photo gallery of the night market in Wu Shan Square (吴山广场, Wu Shan Guang Chang), one of the most touristic place of Hangzhou.

Wushan Square is located at the South extremity of Yan An Road, which cuts the city center of Hangzhou from North to South. Behind Wushan Square there is a hill with a pagoda on the top. To be precise, the night market isn’t on the square; it’s on Hefang Street, a pedestrian street that departs from the Square.
