托...的福 tuō…de fú to benefit from something because of someone else
人间天堂 rénjiān tiāntáng heaven on earth
不是盖的 bùshì gàide when something turns out to be true
流连忘返 liúlián wàng fǎn to enjoy yourself so much you forget you need to go home
真是托了G20的福,我才有机会再次来到人间天堂杭州啊。
zhēn shì tuō le G20 de fú ,wǒ cái yǒu jīhuì zàicì láidào rénjiān tiāntáng Hángzhōu ā 。
I'm really grateful for the G20 giving me an opportunity to come to Hangzhou, this paradise on earth.
可不是吗?都说“上有天堂,下有苏杭”,杭州的美可不是盖的!欸,这是你第二次来杭州?那第一次呢?是什么时候,很不一样吗?

That's so true, right? That's why they say "the heavens above are matched in beauty with Suzhou and Hangzhou below". The beauty of Hangzhou is not overblown! Ah, this is your second visit to Hangzhou? Then when was your first visit? When was that? Was is very different?
哦,您说的对,杭州真是美极了,第一次来就流连忘返,我印象最深的就是西湖十景了,这说起来也已经是十多年前了,如今杭州发展可真快,变化可真大。

Uh, you're right. Hangzhou is extremely beautiful. The first time I came I didn't want to leave. I remember my deepest impression being of the ten historic sites around the West Lake. Now that I think about it, it must have been over ten years ago. Now Hangzhou is developing very quickly, and the changes are really dramatic.
杭州占尽天时地利,自古就是不少朝代的帝都,历史文化积淀下来的那份大器再加上杭州本身的山明水秀就形成了它独特的气质。

Hangzhou has a great strategic location and has served as the imperial capital of several historical dynasties, as well as historical relics and the enchanting scenery of Hangzhou itself, which form its unique features.
