Web page Design Ideas

corporate2.1

  1. On this design near the bottom where you see the ‘Category’ title and links, I was thinking of putting links to products. Second, where you see ‘Archives’ I was thinking of putting recent news/blog posts. But we can also put a product and discription on each column. Here’s an image of what the ‘About’ page could look like. In the blue boxes to the left of the page, we could put links and images to products, recent news, a newsletter sign up, etc.–almost anything you can think of.
  2. design2Design #2 is similar, however, I was planning on having the home page include more products instead of text. So, as you see the peach images in the boxes to the right and left, just underneath, we can include product images and descriptions (with links to more info).

Forbidden City

Once the exclusive city for the emperors and off-limits to the public for 500 years, the Forbidden City is the largest collection of ancient Chinese architecture and culture in one place. It’s well worth the Y60 entrance fee.

What to see inside the Forbidden City

Meridian Gate – the southern ceremonial hall was restored in the 17th century was a massive portal for the Emperors use.

Divine Military Genius Gate – the Northern ceremonial hall

Supreme Harmony Gate – Across the Golden Stream, which overlooks the massive courtyard that once held imperial audiences up to 100,000 people.

The Three Great Halls – the heart of the Forbidden City, which are raised on a marble terrace, Hall of Supreme Harmony, Hall of Middle Harmony, and Hall of Preserving Harmony.

Hall of Supreme Harmony – the most important building within the Forbidden City is also the largest. Originally built in the 15th century was later restored later in the 17th century. The Hall of Supreme Harmony was once used for ceremonial occasions like the Emperor’s birthday and nominating high-level military officials. Inside the hall is the lavishly decorated Dragon Throne where the emperor would preside.

Hall of Middle Harmony – Located behind the Hall of Supreme Harmony, the Hall of Middle Harmony was once used as a transit lounge for the emperor.

Hall of Preserving Harmony – mainly used as a banquet hall and later used for imperial examinations. Look to the rear to see a 250-ton marble imperial carriageway carved with dragons and clouds.

Palace of Heavenly Purity – was the residence for both the Ming and Qing emperors, was also later used as an audience hall for foreign officials.

Hall of Union

Imperial Garden – a classical Chinese garden might be the most beautiful part of the Forbidden City with fine landscaping, rockeries, and walkways.

Clock Exhibition Hall – isn’t one to miss, its an exhibition of gifts to Emperor Qing from overseas. Many of the 18th Century clocks are imports from Guangdong, the southern port near Hong Kong. These imports are mainly form England, America, Switzerland, and Japan.

Notes:

(1) Starbucks is no longer inside the Forbidden City; (2) Some of the best views of the Forbidden City are away from the bustling crowds out to the outer sides of the city.

Summer Palace

The 17 Arch Bridge at the Summer Palace

It’s a nice escape from the chaos of Beijing, and is one of Beijing’s most visited sites. The immense park of the Summer Palace is dominated by the Kunming Lake. Admission into the park is Y30 for entrance or Y60 for entrance and entrance into all other sites within. Be sure to take at lease three hours to half a day for a decent tour of the Summer Palace.

Address: 19 Xinjian Gongme
Phone: 6288 114
Open: 8:30-5:00pm

The Summer Palace was once the royal family’s escape from the Forbidden City during the summer heat. The site was royal garden before Emperor Qianlong, 18th Century, used 100,000 laborers to expand the lake.

During the second opium war, 1856-1860, the Anglo-French troops left their mark on the Palace, damaging buildings and plundering various treasures. Empress Dowager Cixi refited the palace in 1888 with money budgeted for a modern navy, but the Marble Boat on the North end of the park, was her only naval concession.

Foreign troops during the Boxer Rebellion had another round of looting in the 1900’s.

Sights to See Within the Summer Palace

Hall of Benevolence and Longevity – the main structure of the Summer Palace, with a hardwood throne, a courtyard littered with bronze animals.

Long Corridor – an abundance of paintings and dashing woodwork along the Northern shore.

Buddhist Fragrance Pavilion


Cloud Dispelling Hall

Temple of the Sea Wisdom – tiled with statuettes of Buddha, but many have been obliterated.

Qing Boathouses – where you’ll see Cixi’s marble boat, and some fine boathouses from Emperor Qing.

South Lake Island – There’s not much on this Island, but the journey to the Island is worth the trip. Either take the ferry for Y10 or walk around the lake to the 17 arch bridge.

Dragon King Temple – It’s on the South Lake Island

Suzhou Street – mimicking the famous southern town Jangsu, Suzhou Street impersonates the water canals, shops, and eateries.

Propaganda: The Best Student Spot in Beijing

Like any great club should, Propaganda serves up the best dance and drinks for the student crowd. Students fill the downstairs floor almost every night, but dance is only as good as the drinks behind it. And Propoganda hits the drinks on price as well.

Most of the drinks come in the 20-50 RMB price range, as for their signiture drink the Propaganda, is the most expensive. For those dancing budget lovers, Wednesday night Propoganda is the place to be with all you can drink for 50RMB for ladies and 70 RMB for guys. But, go before a crowd shows up because Wednesday nights get insanely busy and later in the night it’s almost impossible to grab a drink.

As for the music, don’t expect anything but the latest great dance music. Hip hop/rap blasts through the lower floor with local students loving every minute. It’s frequent visitors show a nice blend of local Chinese with foreign students.

Apparently, as I’ve been told, look for the skecty, old white guy who will be dancing by himself in the corner — he’s even made it to YouTube.

With the great hits, the cheap drinks, and the young crowd Propaganda gets the Students Spot award.

Walking in Wulumuqi (Urumqi) in Xinjiang Provence

After coming back to Shanghai from a trip out to Western China, you can really feel the difference. In Shanghai Westerners are stared at, but in West China, Westerners aren’t welcome in some parts.
