The Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower is a TV tower in Shanghai, China. Its location at the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district, by the side of Huangpu River, opposite of The Bund makes it a distinct landmark in the area. At 468 m (1,535 feet) high, it was the tallest structure in China from 1994–2007, when it was surpassed by the Shanghai World Financial Center. It is classified as a AAAAA scenic area by the China National Tourism Administration.
Suzhou Ancient Water Town - Ancient water town is surrounded by water. The village has as many canals as it does roads. No cars are allowed into the village making it very peaceful and quiet. Little gondolas glide through the canals and people can rent one and travel through the village. The village is filled with elderly people and they are quick to smile at visitors. Sitting next to a canal with your feet in the water, or sitting in a teahouse watching the gondolas pass by is an unforgettable experience.
Potala Palace - The Potala Palace, winter palace of the Dalai Lama since the 7th century, symbolizes Tibetan Buddhism and its central role in the traditional administration of Tibet. The complex, comprising the White and Red Palaces with their ancillary buildings, is built on Red Mountain in the centre of Lhasa Valley, at an altitude of 3,700m. Also founded in the 7th century, the Jokhang Temple Monastery is an exceptional Buddhist religious complex. Norbulingka, the Dalai Lama's former summer palace, constructed in the 18th century, is a masterpiece of Tibetan art. The beauty and originality of the architecture of these three sites, their rich ornamentation and harmonious integration in a striking landscape, add to their historic and religious interest..
Drepung Monastery - Founded in 1416, Drepung Monastery (Tibetan: Drepung Gompa; Chinese: Zhébàng Sì) on the outskirts of Lhasa was once Tibet's largest and most influential monastery, with over 10,000 monks. Today, Drepung houses about 700 monks and attracts pilgrims and visitors from around the world.
Drepung Monastery - Norbulingka Park located in the western suburbs of Lhasa was the summer home of the Dalai Lama. The sprawling grounds cover an area of over 360,000 square meters and have over 374 rooms making it the largest garden in Tibet. The area used to be an uninhabited area that the seventh Dalai Lama used to enjoy visiting, and as a result a local magistrate had a palace built in the area. Construction began in 1740's and over the following centuries many additions and renovations took place. The park consists of several palace complexes, water features, gardens and pavilions. The Migyur Potrang, built in 1954, is well known for its exquisite murals and should not be missed by visitors. In 2001, the Norbulingka Park was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List..
