Hello Kitty at Xi Hu Tian Di, HangZhou

Posted by - Administrator of Hello Kitty Gifts

After leaving the shore of West Lake (Xi Hu), I stroll along the streets of HangZhou and come to the entrance gateway of Xi Hu Tian Di (meaning world in West Lake). This development was built by a Hong Kong developer and it is a commercial development with shops and restaurants mingling comfortably into the West Lake scenery.
Hello Kitty at Entrance Gateway of Xi Hu Tian Di, HangZhouI am first attracted by the beautiful and colorful flowers. However, when I look closely at the entrance gateway, I see the HangZhou logo in the form of a Chinese character "Hang" (the abbreviated word for HangZhou Province). Moreover, the Chinese character has been designed as a logo with symbols of pagodas, towers and bridges - the typical Chinese architecture along the shores of West Lake. If you see more features than what I describe, please leave a comment to let me know.Hello Kitty studies Logo Design of Xi Hu Tian Di, HangZhouThe most amazing design feature of the entrance gateway is that when I move towards the central axis, I can catch a glimpse of the picturesque landscape behind the gateway. Do you feel that the circular window in the centre looks like a beautiful Chinese landscape painting with trees and a bridge? This is another example of the Chinese landscape design methodology in borrowing views and sceneries. I am totally astonished when I take this picture because I do not realize the real intention of the designer when I first arrive at the entrance gateway.Hello Kitty's View of Picturesque Window in Entrance Gateway of Xi Hu Tian Di, HangZhouAdd to Technorati Favorites

Yes, it's a very peaceful place and the locals are relaxing themselves by the side of the Gold Cow Lake. I also locate a talented artist doing sketches by the side of the lake. Hope that peaceful feeling accompanies you when you leave my blog. See you again soon.
