Spotlight: Le Passage Mohkan Shan

In case staying in a French mansion and visiting Chinese tea plantations are both on your bucket list, this one’s for you. Located in the Zhejiang province and surrounded by rolling tea hills, Le Passage Mohkan Shan is a stunning escape.

Le Passage Mohk Shan
Le Passage to decadence. Yes, please!

There are 28 rustic rooms, a restaurant, big banquet rooms, tea-picking excursions, French cooking classes and even an underground wine cellar—perfect for team-building events, birthday bashes and envy-inducing weddings. It’s not totally out of the way either: the high-speed train makes it a two-hour trip from Shanghai and an hour from Hangzhou. Take that, smog!

Rooms from RMB3,200 (US$515). Entire house from RMB98,000 (US$15,767). Xianrenkeng Tea Plantation, Zhejiang Province, China (+86) 572-805-2958, www.lepassagemoganshan.com.
