Xiaoshan - The City.
Xiaoshan (pop. 1.2 million) is a district of the city of Hangzhou. It is a very affluent city, and is clean and modern in the centre, with a large number of shops and privately owned businesses. Despite this it has, as yet, remained relatively traditional and has managed to retain much of it?s character. There are many parks, rivers and canals and it is definitely unpolluted by Chinese standards.
Xiaoshan itself is quite small, although it does have a number of bars and restaurants, including a few 'Western-style' ones, and Hangzhou (pop. 6 million), with it's university population, is a simple 30 minute bus ride away if you are looking for brighter lights.
Xiaoshan isn't what you might call 'cosmopolitan', but if you are looking for other western faces you will certainly find them in Hangzhou, as well as other Western comforts such as the huge Carrefours department store, which stocks pretty much everything that you might need.
If it is nature and culture that are looking for then Hangzhou has the famous West Lake and a beautiful Buddhist temple, as well as a fantastic silk market where you can buy silk at rock bottom prices and have it made up by one of the many tailors in the area.
Shanghai is an easy 2 hour train ride away if you fancy a short trip on your days off, and Xiaoshan has its own airport for easy domestic flights to other cities in China.
