ShangHai, China - 27th April 2015

By: papa_always

HI~
Today we went to the Shanghai Museum of natural history.

This is a new museum,so We're curious.
Its unique architectural form of a round top with a square base, symbolizing the ancient Chinese philosophy that the square earth is under the round sky, is a distinguished architectural combination of traditional feature and modern spirit.


The museum there are a lot of interesting

XiTang, China - 28th April 2015

By: papa_always

Today we leave Shanghai to Xitang.
It takes about 90 minutes to drive down to Xitang from Shanghai; from a 21st-century megalopolis to an altogether dreamier slice of history.

To call this lovely water-village an oriental Venice would be wildly over the mark, yet it shares similarities with its more famous Italian counterpart.Canals dissect twisting narrow lanes and pathways, rendering the community traffic-free and boat friendly.  Worn stone steps lead down to the waters and hopelessly pretty bridges span them.

Even though the place is small, it's chock-full with museums, temples and places of historic and cultural interest.

Night we live in the town,Here during the day and night is not the same.
In the morning,water flows beneath bridges,thin mist is like silk,pinkish walls on both banks stand tall and erect and tiled houses are reflected inversely in the water.In the evening,the setting sun shines slantwise,songs come from fishing boats,lamps flicker and the fragrance of wine drifts.The whole old town is like a poem and a picture.In this town,people will feel that they are seemingly in an earthly paradise.

Even though Xitang is small, it's something of a centre for the arts. In summer, traditional folk operas, concerts and a local cinema play by the waterside in the open-air. And all year-round, young artists from the cities come to paint the alleyways and canals.

It is an exquisitely beautiful spot.

WuZhen, China - 29th April 2015

By: papa_always

HI~mum

We leaved Xitang to Wuzhen.We  arrived WUzhen one hour by car.Wuzhen is also a old town,There are like with Xitang, but not the same.

Situated in the north of Zhejiang Province, the beautiful water town of Wuzhen is one of those ancient towns. It is a charming place full of ancient bridges, traditional hotels, boutiques and restaurants all built around an amazing water network that is part of the Beijing-Hangzhou Canal, the longest canal in the world.Over the past thousand years, Wuzhen has not changed its name, water system, or way of life. It is a living museum for an ancient civilization's history, food, and traditions.The buildings of Wuzhen are all a century or more old and built using traditional wood and stone architecture with tile roofs.For centuries the local people of this area have been building their homes and markets along the river's edge. Spacious, beautiful courtyards are hidden by the thousands in between the buildings, providing a delightful discovery at almost every turn.

In this ancient town there is plenty to do, or nothing at all if your aim is to relax. The place is quiet, yet also offers wine bars, pottery and glass workshops, theaters, and an open-air film pavilion.Take in the delightful town from the water on a traditional wood boat, and stay in one of the many luxurious hotels or guest accommodations in residents' homes for a true taste of Chinese village life. :cyclops:

  The wine brewing industry is prosperous in Wuzhen. In the Ming Dynasty, there were over 20 brewing workshops in Wuzhen, and the three most famous ones were Gaogongsheng, Shunxing and Yong Sheng Workshops.

  The Woodcarving Museum, formerly the residence of local rich people Xu Family, also named Hundred Flower Hall, is well-known for its exquisite wood carvings. Itís carved beams and painted rafters, especially the human figures, birds and four-feet animals on the doors and windows by various carving skills.

HangZhou, China - 1st May 2015

By: papa_always

Mum~

We came to Hangzhou. :cyclops:
Hangzhou is one of the most famous tourist cities in China, not only famous for its natural beauty, but also famous for its history.
.Legend has it that the lake used to be an aus'picious pearl hewn into its sparkling shape by the Jade Dragon and the Golden Phoenix ,but it was later stolen by the Mother Queen of the West. When Jade Dragon and Golden Phoenix scrambled with the Mother Queen, this pearl acci'dentally fell onto a land that was known as Hangzhou.

It means just as there is paradise in heaven, there are Suzhou and Hangzhou on earth.  Lying on the west edge of Hangzhou city, West Lake is the symbol of Hangzhou as well as one of the most beautiful sights in China.  West Lake has all along been praised as a sparkling pearl.the whole lake is divided into 5 sections, namely the Outer Lake, North Inner Lake, West Inner lake, Yue Lake and Little South Lake, by Gu hill, Sudi Causeway, Baiti Causeway and Ruangong Mound.
And  the beauty of the  West Lake lies in its lingering  charm  that survives the change of seasons in a year and of hours in a day. Among its beautiful sights, the most famous sites are the Ten Sights in West Lake .

We  board and enjoy the beautiful scenery.The placid lake reflected the image of the trees.The breeze is on my face and body.I feel so good.

We also went to the  Lingyin Temple.It's sacred  and quiet .

This is a nice place. :D

Beijing, China - 15th December 2015

By: papa_always

Today we went to the Olympic Park.

Due to the stadium's outward appearance, it was nicknamed "The Bird's Nest".
It looks like a bird's nest woven with branches. It contains a bowl-shaped stadium which is red. The whole building is related through the giant reticular structure, without one column in the interior.
It has been a landmark and a longstanding symbol of the Olympics. During the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the opening ceremony, closing ceremony, track and field meets, and men's football final will be held here.

It is the world's largest steel structure and the most complex stadium ever constructed. Its design had to be inspiring and be able to withstand an earthquake.
After the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the stadium will become a sports and entertainment facility for the residents of Beijing.



The Beijing National Aquatics Center,also officially known as the National Aquatics Center,and colloquially known as the Water Cube,is an aquatics center that was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green for the swimming competitions of the 2008 Summer Olympics

Despite its nickname,the building is not an actual cube,but a cuboid (a rectangular box). is a shape very similar to the structure of "H2O",

In the evening it will make a colorful light, Much better than the day. PAPA said she had the chance to bring us here again at night.

Boracay, Philippines - 3rd January 2016

By: papa_always

We're going to the white sand beach in the sun today.
White Beach, Boracay's biggest tourist attraction, stretches some four kilometers on the western side of the island, mostly within the barangay of Balabag. It is largely because of the pristine, white powdery sand of White Beach and the crystal-clear blue water of the surrounding sea that Boracay is often called "the world's most beautiful tropical island."


The northern end of the beach is "lorded over" by Fridays, the southern end by Lorenzo South. In between you will find all kinds of accommodation, from native bamboo-and-nipa bungalows to Western-style concrete buildings.

The most famous view of Boracay is the sunset. We sat on a sailing boat to see the sunset.
But I can't take a picture. The sailing is too exciting. I was wet all over. We'll play on this again tomorrow.

Boracay, Philippines - 4th January 2016

By: papa_always

We're still at the beach today.
I really like the sea. Seeing it makes me relaxed and peaceful. My home is near the sea and I love walking on the beach. After sunset, the sea becomes so different from daytime. The sea breeze makes me comfortable. Walking without shoes feels great, because the sand is so soft. Sometimes, we will play games on the beach or make some sand sculptures. It's really funny.
