I had the great oportunity to visit Zhejiang University two times, in 2013 and 2016. The hospitality of the teachers and the pleasure of the students who was sharing with us the beauty of the city with so great emotions was a great surprise!

Strictly speaking, Zhejiang University is not your typical tourist destination but you'll learn a lot about the history of Chinese education system, science & technology if you do visit one of many campuses in Hangzhou.

We enjoyed the visit to this famous Jhejiang University where many famous Chinese scholars were educated. Love some of the old brick building which stood for many different period of the turbulent eras in China.

I took classes here and while it is a very large campus with many buildings and a lot of nature to see, it is still just a university. Spend your time seeing one of the many, many other attractions in Hangzhou (unless you have no money, then you can go here for free and walk around).

One of China's top universities and has lots of history. There are some interesting sights, its pretty peaceful and has good vibes from all the students, even some international students. Worth a look and a good chance to escape the crazy driving and pushy crowds of other areas. They also have a really excellent restaurant at the southeast corner.
