Some pictures of Zhuhai, where i currently live. Risking a bit of "China overload" after Ron Engels' post about Chengdu.
The symbol of Zhuhai is the Statue of the Fisherwoman:
(Why Fisherwoman? And whats that she's holding above her head? A pearl? See here: http://www.zhuhai.gov.cn/english/360...5/1036933.html)
Zhuhai's main attraction is the New Yuanming Palace (园明新园):
It's called New Yuanming Palace because it is a 1:1 reconstruction of the original Yuanming Palace. The latter stood in Beijing, but was destroyed by British and French troops in the mid 19th century.
A small pavillon (亭) in the Haibin Park (海滨公园):
A view from our balcony:
Partial city overviews:
(The hills and power plant in the far background belong to Macau)
Gate to the Mingting Park (名亭公园), note the traditional writing direction on the gate - right to left, modern Chinese is written left to right.
Thanks for viewing!
