Praktische Infos über Hangzhou

Wie finde ich mich in der Stadt zurecht?

Like many cities in China, a good way to get around in Hangzhou is by bicycle. A public bike system is available, giving travellers access to bikes located across the city for a small fee, plus a deposit. Buses are another good way to get around the city, as the networks are extensive; however, all signage is in Chinese. There are different kinds of buses that range in cost from CNY 1-4. Tourist routes are prefixed with a 'Y'. A metro system was opened in 2012. Line 1 is the first of eight lines that are planned to operate in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, and the surrounding suburbs. Taxis are also available and trips within the city start from CNY 11. The bright turquoise city taxis are easily spotted on the streets, and are more reliable than those offered by touts at tourist spots. Few drivers speak English, however, so travellers should have their destination written down or be able to point it out on a map. Visitors in Hangzhou are not advised to drive, as the traffic is known to be chaotic and road signs confusing.

Währung

Die Landeswährung von China ist der Renminbi Yuan (CNY). Ein Renminbi Yuan entspricht 10 Chiao/Jiao or 100 Fen. Stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie Ihre übrig gebliebenen Yuan vor der Rückkehr nach Hause tauschen, weil es problematisch sein kann, diese Währung außerhalb Chinas zu tauschen. Geld wechseln können Sie bei den örtlichen Filialen der Bank of China. Banken sind an den Wochenenden geschlossen. Die größeren Hotels und insbesondere die „Friendship-Stores“ für Ausländer akzeptieren die meisten westlichen Währungen für Einkäufe. Die gängigen Kreditkarten werden in den wichtigsten Großstädten akzeptiert, aber in ländlichen Gegend kann die Akzeptanz eingeschränkt sein. Geldautomaten sind außerhalb der großen Städte selten.

Kommunikation

Die internationale Vorwahl für China ist +86. Telefonkarten sind weit verbreitet und Anrufe können von Postämtern und Hotels aus erfolgen. In den Telefonzellen auf den Straßen sind in der Regel nur Ortsgespräche möglich. In den Hotels sind Ortsgespräche in der Regel kostenlos oder werden nur zu einem geringen Preis berechnet. Die Mobilfunknetze sind sehr gut ausgebaut und chinesische Netzwerke haben Roaming-Vereinbarungen mit den meisten nicht-nordamerikanischen internationalen Betreibern. Internetcafés gibt es in den meisten Städten.

Klima

+

Hangzhou has a humid, subtropical climate with generally warm and mild conditions all year round. The pleasant and temperate weather is an advantage for tourists and is probably one of the reasons the city is so popular with foreigners. As with most of China, the four seasons are distinct: summer is long, hot and humid; autumn is cool and clear; winter is dry and cold; and spring is warm, rainy and short. There are two rainy seasons in Hangzhou: the first is a brief period between late June and early July when Hangzhou experiences the Asian monsoon season; and the second is Hangzhou's typhoon season which brings heavy rains in August and September. Although the area is prone to typhoons during this time the storms very seldom hit Hangzhou directly so it is usually less dramatic than it sounds. The best time to visit Hangzhou is in autumn (September to November) when the average temperature is a mild 63°F (17°C). Summer in Hangzhou is also a fairly popular time to visit but the heat and humidity can be uncomfortable if travellers are not used to it. Spring is stunningly beautiful because of all the blossoms but it is too rainy to be a peak tourist period.
