    Three famous towers in China.
    Yellow Crane Tower, the most famous tower in China, Wuchang.

    Yueyang Tower is one of the Three Great Towers south of the Yangzi .
    It is said that the site was once a platform for the Wu Kingdom (222-250AD) general Lu Su to train his naval troops. The tower was first built in 716 and was subsequently rebuilt on numerous occasions. The current Qing style structure is over 20 meters (66ft) tall and was last renovated in 1983. The tower was built without the use of a single nail.


    Tengwang tower is built in 653 in the Tang Dynasty,it was burnt down in 1926 and rebuilt in 1989.The song-style Tengwang Tower has a floor space of 130,000 square meters and measures 57.5 meters in height.The roofs are double caved,and the beams and columns are colorfully painted.

    Chinese water torture



    Daily Mail
    4th August 2006

    Somewhere under that lot, there's a beach. This was the astonishing scene yesterday in the northern Chinese resort of Quindao as an estimated 200,000 people flocked to be beside the seaside as temperatures soared.

    As they clamoured to get near the water, almost every grain of sand was covered - so packed that even a German tourist would be unable to put his towel down to claim a spot.

    But summer in China is as unpredictable as here - in southern China, meanwhile, a typhoon was causing havoc.

    What that ^ beach in Quindao (aka Qingdao) looks like on less sweltering days (although not necessarily less smoggy) ...
