黃鶴樓 (Yellow Crane Tower) really reminds me of a few classical Chinese poems I read in the past! :D
Yellow Crane Tower is a famous and historic tower, first built in 223 AD. The current structure, however, was rebuilt in 1981 at an one kilometre distance from the original site, and bears little resemblance to the historical Yellow Crane Tower. (TOO BAD the historial building couldn’t survive the warfare in China T-T) The tower stands on Sheshan (Snake Hill), at the bank of Yangtze River in Wuchang District, Wuhan, in Hubei province of central China.
2 famous classical Chinese poems related to this building… :) [sorry for not including English translation :P Classical poems are for experts to translate! >_<]
李白 (one of my fav Chinese poets in the Tang Dynasty!!!)
