The poem Farewell to Lin Zifang at Jingci Temple at Dawn, written by Yang Wanli during the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279), is one of the most famous poems depicting Hangzhou lotus flowers. It is said that the lotus in Hangzhou has a history of 1,000 years and here's a show that will give you a thorough exploration of the aquatic plant's presence in the city.

While in Qingshan, a historic village in Huanghu town, Yuhang district, an increasing number of young people are going there to join local forces for environmental protection and devote their youth to accomplish their dreams. In this place, the natives live in harmony with newcomers, and traditional industries draw inspiration from its creative culture. When you see their happy faces, you will know what it will be like for future villages.
