Temple of Heaven
In early part of the day I visited two of the must do attractions in Beijing of the Temple of Heaven and Yonghegong (Lama Temple). Temple of Heaven is located close to Tiantandongmen Station on Line 5 of the subway. The temple is surrounded by a huge recreational park and has the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests as the center piece attraction. The park is a good breather from busy city where you can see lot of local performers, opera recitals and picnicking. Lama Temple can be reached by Line 2 (the loop line) from the station named after the temple. The temple houses a 26 meters tall Maitreya Buddha statute carved from a single piece of White Sandalwood included in the Guinness Book of Records.
Famous being Beijing street which is a big street completely dedicated for shoppers. One thing I must say Guangzhou is a Foodies delight. From dim sums to many Chinese specialties. It basically gives you a chance to experience the real authentic Chinese food. One thing which every one needs to be careful while travelling to Guangzhou or may be any Chinese city is that THEY JUST DON'T KNOW ENGLISH there will be hardly any people who can help you with English . During my stay i kept Mobile translator on and did take help from the hotel staff . otherwise it was very difficult to communicate in China Hope you will like my Blog!This post was originally published on Traveller Insight.
Jade on 36: The gleaming restaurant jewel of the Pudong Shangri-La is this 36th floor stunner, with sweeping views and a dining room by Adam Tihany. Next door is the jewel box-like bar, and both are nearly as breathtaking as the view: a private elevator whistles you to the top of the tower and you disembark in a hallway with ornate Venetian marble floors and eccentric design accents. Chef Paul Pairet’s unique food is the ideal complement to such rarified surroundings, and has been garnering attention worldwide; expect nouveau fine dining with a deft, playful touch. The foie gras lollipop, a creamy foie gras terrine coated in crunchy caramel and served on the end of a chopstick, melts in your mouth, served with a shot of hot spiced tea that is then cooled by a final layer of fluffy champagne foam. The lemon tart, a whole candied lemon stuffed with lemon curd, sorbet and citrus sections with a precarious sliver of sablée for a crust, makes a beautiful finale to one of the four degustation menus.
