  • Hi everyone and hello to all my friends. Happy to talk to you again. This is modern recreation of a 'traditional' Chinese garden. It is quite different to any other Chinese gardens I have seen either in the Forbiden City, Beijing or in Suzhou, Shanghai, Hangzhou etc. This garden is by far, the most 'open' in comparison. Most traditional gardens are sub-divided into themes and sceens. Finally thank everyone for your comments. I do read everyone of them. I am planning to update and to do a few more slideshows on Chinese architecture.
