Amanfayun China

Amanfayun, China

The romanticism of Old China endures at Amanfayun, an ancient village surrounded by seven temples and swathes of tea plantations near West Lake, the World Heritage Site that has intoxicated poets and emperors for epochs. At the heart of the property, a 200-year-old former temple hosts daily cultural activities, and cobbled paths connect guests with authentic eateries, a traditional bath house and one of China’s most significant temples. Easily reached from Shanghai, this is a nurturing retreat for body, mind and spirit.
