A clean and modern city, Hangzhou is also an emerging tech hub and is home to Alibaba, the famous e-commerce giant.

Other industries that are actively encouraged include biological medicine, manufacturing, food processing, electronics and machinery.

Despite being one of the wealthiest cities in China, Hangzhou never tops the lists of the most expensive cities in the world for expats to live in.
