I had a really hard time to decide what this post should be about. Maybe Chinese cuisine, maybe typical education or maybe travel sceneries. However, after I saw some pictures sent by my friend I made up my mind to talk something about architecture.
In the old days, traditional buildings were always coloured with red and gold for those two colours represented royal families. In the yard, there was always a long twist veranda surrounded by rockeries and plants.
The most magnificent and famous historical building complex is the Forbidden City in Beijing. This imperial palace has a history of more than 500 years and attracts countless of people from all over the world every year.
However, even though I am a person born and bred in the north, I would like to say that buildings in the south of China are the soul of Chinese architectural culture.
In the south, buildings are following the aesthetic way which is called the beauty of asymmetry. You can never find two buildings look exactly the same. This architectural style is totally opposite with the northern one.
You can sit in the exquisite pavilion standing by the side of the lake, wander along the silent path being surrounded by lush flowers, and enjoy the green bamboos growing outside the gridding window.
You will feel like as if walking in an old fade painting.
