Top 4 Chinese Gardens

When talk about Chinese gardens, gardens in Beijing are most well-known for foreign friends, while Chinese Jiangnan gardens are more famous at home.

Top 4 Chinese gardens include gardens both in North China and also those in South China, namely: the Summer Palace (Yihe Yuan in Chinese);  Emperor Kangxi's Summer Mountain Resort in Chengde (Chengde Bishu Shanzhuang in Chinese); Humble Administrator’s Garden (Zhuozheng Yuan in Chinese) and Liu Garden (Liu Yuan)

1.the Summer Palace: Beijing

2.  Summer Mountain Resort in Chengde: Chengde, Hebei Province

3.Liu Garden: Suzhou, Jiangsu Province

4. Humble Administrator’s Garden: Suzhou, Jiangsu Province

It is easy to find that gardens in North China and South China are in different, those in north are more magnificent and grand, while those in South China are much more gentle and soft, however, they share one similarity that all of them pay special attention to the construction of buildings, those designers would spend much time in make a blueprint to make sure that from every point, the garden can display its charm.

As for me, I am used to soft South China gardens, and I am interested to see sth. different--the magnificent style gardens in North China. If you are planning for a China visit, you can put all these wonderful gardens in your list, they indeed worth a tour, and esp, if you are interested in South China gardens, you can go to Suzhou--a paradise on the earth.

What will you do when your rights is been torted? Go to the law, ask for compensation ......what's your choice?

Look at this man, he does something different from what we've used to in safeguarding his right:

Can you read these Chinese characters? It reads: Volvo is good, but not as good as me.

It happens on August 24, 2011, in Jingde County, Jiangxi Province,  he bought a Volve in May at the cost of 480,000, while there has always been stoppage on the car during these monthes, so he came up with such an idea to express his anger--to lead an ox to pull the Volve.

Do you think it helpful in solving the problem?
