Hangzhou: the best city for lovers
Hangzhou Daily Reporter: Du Yue, Li Zhong
No city like Hangzhou has so many love legend. Xu Xian and Bai Niangzi meet on the broken bridge, Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai made a three-year friendship in Wansong Academy. Besides, in the stories of Su Xiaoxiao and Ruan yu, Yu Dafu and Wang Yingxia, Shi Liangcai and Shenqiushui, Xu Zhimo and Lu Xiaoman, the young men and women meet each other, know each other as well as stay with each other in the very city --- Hang Zhou, making their love stories eternal for the future generation.
There is endless love beside lakes since ancient times. Hangzhou, a place fit for love, is overwhelmed by the surrounding atmosphere of love. In spring, the willow on Baidi tells the unlimited linger; in summer, the lotus in Beili Lake blossoms just like a passionate lover; in autumn, the osmanthus fills the city with a fragrance as if the air were full of honey; yet in the winter when the snow covers the broken bridge, the bridge floor is just like the chaotic love.
