If you are ever in Beijing try and make time to see the Yuan Ming Yuan ..............

It was a wonder of the world before the British under Lord Elgin VIII trashed in 1860 ........

The park had many different types of palaces with English, French, Italian styles etc., ....

It is a massive complex and parts of it are still standing ........

But the wooden building were raised to the ground and the stone ones pulled down .......

The Empress ci xi did try to rebuild it but it was trashed again in 1900 by invading foreigners ....
