Since he was responsible for the support of his brother and sister, he was unable to go abroad for study.

to tour Shanghai. Hangzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan, and Xi'an. Many senior officials considered Hu's efforts extravagant, since Japan had only invited 500 youth to Japan the previous year. Hu was criticized internally for the lavish gifts that he gave to visiting Japanese officials, and for allowing his daughter to privately accompany Japanese prime minister Nakasone (Yasuhiro Nakasone)'s son when they visited Beijing. Hu defended his actions by citing the importance of strong Sino
(Reign Year 15 of Qianlong Emperor). Artisans reproduced the garden architecture styles of various palaces in China. Kunming Lake was created by extending an existing body of water to imitate the West Lake in Hangzhou. The palace complex suffered two major attacks—during the Anglo-French allied invasion of 1860 (with the Old Summer Palace also ransacked at the same time), and during the Boxer Rebellion, in an attack by the eight allied powers in 1900. The garden survived and was rebuilt in 1886 and 1902. In 1888, it was given the current name, ''Yihe Yuan''. It served as a summer resort for Empress Dowager Cixi, who diverted 30 million taels of silver, said to be originally designated for the Chinese navy (Beiyang Fleet), into the reconstruction and enlargement of the Summer Palace. * G56 Hangzhou-Ruili Highway from Hangzhou, Zhejiang to Ruili, Yunnan, Local classifications Generally, when referring to a local dialect in everyday speech, the speaker will refer to the dominant city in the region as a marker of the dialect as a whole. For example, a Wu speaker would not ask a fellow Wu speaker if they speak "Wu", but would rather ask whether or not they speak the dialect from Suzhou or Hangzhou, known as ''Suzhouhua'' and ''Hangzhouhua (Hangzhou dialect)'', respectively, in Chinese. Generally dialects are branded according to cities, geographical regions, or provinces. This method of informal classification is commonly used in spoken language. Provinces whose dialects are more homogeneous within its boundaries, such as Shaanxi, Shanxi (Jin Chinese), Shandong (Ji-Lu Mandarin), Hebei, Hunan (Xiang Chinese), Jiangxi (Gan Chinese), Sichuan (Sichuan dialect), etc. tend to refer to their own dialects by the name of the province (although sub-dialects exist and can be referred to locally by the name of a city). In more diverse provinces such as Fujian, dialects are informally classified by mutual intelligibility into Min Nan (闽南话), Min Dong (闽东话), and Min Bei (闽北话); in Zhejiang, where there is vast variance in spoken language, dialects are generally classified by cities or counties – as such, no singular "Zhejiang dialect" exists. An area with widespread homogeneity in spoken language is the three provinces of Northeastern China, whose spoken language is collectively known as Northeastern Mandarin, or ''Dongbei Hua'' (东北话) in Chinese. * '''龙井 Longjing (Longjing tea)''' : Maybe the most well-known green tea in China.

Dynasty many people started linking Shi Hui and Shi Nai'an together, suggesting that they are actually the same person. An unnamed writer wrote in ''Chuanqi Huikao Biaomu'' (傳奇會考標目) that Shi Nai'an's given name was actually Hui, style name Juncheng (君承), and he was a native of Hangzhou. Sun Kaidi (孫楷第) also wrote in ''Bibliography of Chinese Popular Fiction'' that "Nai'an" was Shi Hui's pseudonym. Later studies revealed that ''Water Margin'' contained lines in the Jiangsu

to the amateur scholar style. A nonconformist, he generally painted more traditional images laden with symbolism (such as orchids, bamboo, chrysanthemums, and mei blossoms) and preserved his independence by selling works in an open market, rather than adopting an individual patron. Later styles included Buddhist (Buddhism) imagery. However, Jin was the first artist in the Chinese tradition to paint a large number of self-portraits and did earn money through the patronage of wealthy individuals in Yangzhou who, in addition to buying works, were possible publishers for his numerous writings. Jin probably understood these contradictions as he argued that living off of painting should not be considered dishonorable.
