A central highlight of the event was the Grand Canal Culture Club, with multiple calligraphy workshops and bamboo basket demonstrations taking place each day. Guests proudly shared their creations of Lunar New Year, and the top calligraphy participants got to take home a Hangzhou Bamboo Basket made by the master, Hong Liping.

The event was equally popular on Hangzhou’s official Facebook page, as fans from around the world engaged with the event virtually.

Among all precious tourism resources, the commission proudly emphasizedthe prominent Liangzhu culture and the two UNESCO cultural heritage sites in Hangzhou – The Grand Canal and West Lake  to friends from around the globe. The event put fans in time machine on a 5,000 year journey of Hangzhou, manifesting the rich tourism resources of Hangzhou online and offline.
