  • This is a building built by the dream of the red building, according to the Canon books in the country. The work of the Red Dream is a bit deep, but the whole view is very good.

  • The Red Chamber has seen several times still foggy, the Grand View garden but can let you feel, feels, as if returns to the book to see the story the character and the development. In Beijing, the scale of the Grand View Garden is not small. Pavilions, Waterside Lake Bridge, full of the eyes of the Lotus, full of lotus tree, the style of its elegant and childlike clear is a good place to do morning exercises.

  • It a must-see sight for those who are into the Chinese classic novel - Dream of the Red Mansion.
  • Lovely Chinese Garden
  • I and my nine year old daughter enjoyed this place. She thinks this is the best place in Beijing (she has watched the TV series more than 10 times).
  • For the price of ¥40, there isn't much to see. The place is badly maintained. Not much is being mentioned at all regarding the characters from the novel "Chamber Of the Red Mansion". So basically you are just strolling in another garden which you could actually do it for free. Most business in the premises were closed.
  • The red dream is not the sadness and joy of youth, the growth of life, the plastic of the mind, the wisdom of the Chinese people to be centered in childhood, into the external world into the external interaction, become part of the group is no longer its own center, no longer is its own "dead" important, became a self-grown person, called transformation Change, Today's spiritual language is called caterpillars change butterfly. The love of Chinese people, called eating, is rich in the red dream, should not please days to hate the sea fool Love, is beyond the fool love to How to do, there will be China's own Valentina-style expertise, romance, carrying, love, the "love" to move to have the "rationale." There are also Chinese Maslow ' s hierarchy, the need for life to grow, through the test has a new identity, such as the clan through the experience of the warrior identity, to re-enter the group, no longer with the identity of children, also out, transformation become a new identity, new status, as a group of believers. The Jewish people are cut, the United States is a boarding university, Hong Kong is a new profession, the Chinese people are the crown, the girl is a wedding ceremony is no longer a little girl, no longer with tears to protect their warrior identity, tears to become a big sad heart such as Alda Buddha gave birth to the green mother and the voice. Youth is just the first stop of life, doomed to fail to know many failures began to conclude, experience/knowledge/compassion/wisdom, the entertainment of the industry the worship of youth can also be seen as a little bit of life, do not see the large accumulation of life, it is only a very limited part of the stage of life, the youth is worth looking back is not worth to stay. China's own standards: the human self is beyond the reality of the United States (from the red dream of the inspiration. )
