As Spring descends upon us, a get-away to Hangzhou – a city known for its beautiful West Lake, fragrant Longjing tea, and historical temples (and just a 50-minute train ride from Shanghai!) – seems almost obligatory. While looking up accommodations for this mini trip, I had my eyes fixed on Amanfayun, an Aman Resort restored from a centuries-old village surrounded by tea plantations and bamboo groves – sounds surreal, no?
這次杭州兩日小旅行，住在法雲安缦。與其說是因爲想去杭州而住安缦，更准確地說應該是因爲安缦而選擇了杭州。之前曾住過北京的頤和安缦，對這個酒店集團稍有了解 － “Aman” 是梵語裏和平、庇護的意思，而安缦酒店的特征，就是對甯靜、和諧、私密的注重，選址多在文化和曆史結合的地方，如坐落于麗江古鎮的大研安缦，與頤和園一牆之隔的頤和安缦，還有我這次入住，改造于古村落法雲村的法雲安缦。
Amanfayun lies hidden in a valley to the west of West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famed for its idyllic scenery, and is surrounded by 7 temples – Yongfu Si, Lingyin Si, Faxi Si, to name a few. One cannot help but be effected by its calming ambience upon entering the site, and all worldly troubles, whatever they may be, are left at the gate.
