    Don't forget to register with the local Public Security bureau. make sure your friends know the system and where you need to go to register. You don't need to do it at hotels as they do it as part of the check in procedure. This is why they scan your passport.
    Hangzhou is a very clean city but I am not sure about your friends area. West lake is a very relaxing place and I relaxed around there are the bustle of working.

    Hi, I am a local in Hangzhou and working as a travel conslutant. Welcome to Hangzhou! It is really a nice city, although winter is not the best time here, but it is still worth your visit. Yes, the lake, like everybody mentioned, a must to see. It is not just a lake, many sites of Hangzhou are around the lake, it is like a natural open park. And don't forget to rent the red bicycle to tour around the city. You need to pay 300 yuan as deposit at the bicycle center located at Long Xiao Qiao, they will give you a card to rent the bicycle. Everywhere nears to scenic spots have the places to rent and returen the bikes.The first hour is free, the second hour is 1 yuan 1 hour, the third hour is 2 yuan per hour. But you can always ride for free, if you return each 1 hour. This will be a low season for hotel, so don't worry about the cost. Feel free to contact me for anything I may help. Wish you enjoy the holiday.
