Qingyan Stone Boat, Beijing

(4/5 based on 100 reviews on the web)
A lakeside pavilion, Qingyan Stone Boat incorporates lavish Western flourishes in its design, alongside typical Chinese dragon heads. Smaller structures like this were at one point quite common, and provided people with dining and drinking spots, accompanied by picturesque views. The original pavilion was badly damaged by Anglo-French forces during the second opium war of the late 19th century, and was rebuilt by the empress, ironically by using funds embezzled from the navy. At 36 m long and 8 m high, the two-story wooden structure is painted to look like marble, intricately decorated, and provides striking photo opportunities. Be aware that at this stage, tourists cannot board the pavilion for closer inspection.

  • It's a nice sight to see but you won't need a lot of time to see everything about it. I bet it doesn't even really float. ;) 
  • K. Matthew Hou in Beijing yiheyuan is marble made for Keita after the Qing dynasty Western ships. Will be mistaking it for a real ship near the ferry terminal, and do not know. Real estate in big presence, has become a photographer.
