China is a huge country and maybe you won’t be able to develop your understanding by just landing in one city for the whole 6 months. That’s one of the reasons why we have chosen Hangzhou as your first stop to embark on your journey. We would like to give you a warm welcome by having you participate in our Arrival and Orientation Training Camp (AOTC), we also offer au pairs a half day tour of Hangzhou, one of the most beautiful cities of China!
Although Hangzhou has been through many recent urban developments, it still retains its historical and cultural heritage. Today, tourism remains an important aspect of Hangzhou's economy. One of Hangzhou's most popular sights is the West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The West Lake Cultural Landscape covers an area of 8,210 acres and includes some of Hangzhou's most notable historic and scenic places. During the city tour, you could take a traditional sculling boat on the West Lake to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the city. After all the sightseeing, you will also be rewarded with a taste of local cuisine at the end of the trip!
LoPair picks up a different orientation venue depending on the season changes and group size, making sure that each arrival group benefits at its best from the orientation tour.
