When asked about the impressions of Quanzhou, Academician CUI Kai, above, said he likes the city with not only long history and deep culture also very beautiful natural surroundings. He gladly saw well-preserved objects of primitive ecology in Luo-Yang Ancient Stone Bridge constructed in the year of 1053 and those old streets, which is distinct from other tourist places.


“Tribute to Chinese Classics” the 20th-century Chinese Architectural Heritage exhibition opened at WEI YUAN LOU built in about 1300 years ago on May 17 until the month end, which displayed 198 items of classic Chinese architecture works and 50 architects behind it by means of graphics and documents.
