Liuhe Ta (The Six Harmonies Pagoda) is the oldest standing pagoda in Hangzhou. Already along the city's outskirts, the 60-meter high octagonal pagoda is accessible by taxi.  It served as a lighthouse back in the days (1200s) when Hangzhou was the center of commerce along the Grand Canal. Today the Pagoda provides a sanctuary for those who want a relaxing, carefree Hangzhou. The grounds provide a charming walk with its numerous sculptures, bells, and shrines. Climbing up Liuhe Ta costs extra, but it's worthwhile considering the panoramic view of the Qiantang River Tidal Bore (September), some 60 kilometers away.
