China has a lot of UNESCO sites. Unfortunatley I do not receive them very often and that is a pity because China .is a beautiful country. Via the 'you choose UNESCO tag' I tagged mightystar from China. I receveid this lovely card from the Classical Gardens of Suzhou. It looks really peacefull!
Classical Chinese garden design, which seeks to recreate natural landscapes in miniature, is nowhere better illustrated than in the nine gardens in the historic city of Suzhou. They are generally acknowledged to be masterpieces of the genre. Dating from the 11th-19th century, the gardens reflect the profound metaphysical importance of natural beauty in Chinese culture in their meticulous design.
