Hotels in Shaoxing - a booming business city
Shaoxing is a thriving business hub. Many of its businesses are experiencing rapid growth, helping to put the city on the map. As a business traveller, your hotel in Shaoxing gives you access to some of the greatest delights afforded by modern China. A provincial or prefecture-level city, as it's termed by the People's Republic, Shaoxing encompasses a well-developed and pristine urban centre and expansive rural areas. After a hectic day in the city, it's a pleasure to divert to the scenic countryside, which is easily reached.
What unique experiences does Shaoxing offer?
Today, business travellers to this 2000 year-old region can look forward to the famously smooth and delicate flavours of the local cuisine. After closing a business deal, it is common to partake in a toast with your new associates - do try the Shaoxing wine, which is considered the best rice wine in all of China. Everything western business travellers require in terms of modern shopping, from clothing to electronics, can be found on the commercial street of Jiefang Lu.
What can I expect as a business traveller to the region?
Shaoxing is not only well-established as a business centre, but its industries are seeing growth, with economic development over the past decade being steady and significant. The textiles industry accounts for approximately two thirds of the city's total exports, although service and technology are expanding sectors. Impressively, foreign trade has been increasing consistently, suggesting this is a city with global ambitions. Of Shaoxing's three districts, the most important for business are Yuecheng, the seat of the city's government, and Zhuji, the largest city in the province, with a population of one million.
What sights can I reach from my Shaoxing hotel?
If you have time to spare outside of business hours, there is much to see nearby to your Shaoxing hotel. The Shen Garden is both a restorative retreat and a window into traditional Chinese culture. If you fancy delving into some Chinese history then head to the Dayu Mausoleum, tomb of the legendary Yu the Great, founder of the Xia Dynasty. This 4000 year old monumental palace was built to honour him after his death on Mount Xianglu on a hunting trip, so the story goes. It remains a listed and cherished monument.
