北京: 颐和园

Thursday Travels is a weekly column featuring sights and sounds from my wanderlust adventures. Come, fly with me, and we’ll explore strange cultures, exotic eats and everything in-between.

建于乾隆年间的颐和园,因为理政与居住性质的建筑极少,所以乾隆皇帝从未在园中居住。遭英法联军的烧毁和八国联军的破坏后,颐和园还曾一度被共产党圈占,终于,在1998年被列入世界文化遗产名录。

我试着以局外人的身份理解中国历史。但历史就是如此,无论谁对谁错,就算时间倒退,他还是会照着自己的轨道前进。或许,如果中国当时的政治与社会情况并非如此,我可能就不会生长在新加坡了,所经历的也会变得很不一样。
