Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang province, embraces the West Lake with the Qiantang River passing through it. Every summer, the Qiantang River attracts large crowds of spectators to witness the tidal bore, a custom which dates back more than 2,000 years.
The annual Qiantang autumn tidal bore, which occurs on the 18th day of the eighth lunar month, is considered the world's largest of its kind, with sweeping waves fiercely thrashing along the river banks, making it one of China's most unusual and spectacular sights.
