Fuchun Resort

Shanghai may be on the sea, but when rich locals want to really unwind, they head three hours inland. A five-star retreat for the city's captains of industry, the Fuchun Resort is nestled in a tea plantation on the outskirts of Hangzhou, one of China's ancient capitals. There's golf, there's tai chi, there's Himalayan yoga. Best of all, there's quiet, the one commodity missing in Shanghai. Rooms start at $400 per night. Get here by train or hire a car and driver in Shanghai.
