At this angle, you might have thought i am going to enter into a traditional Chinese pavilion.
Wrong! It's actually the entrance of a bridge unique to the Dong minority tribe in China. Its design embodies two elements; to allow people to cross without exposing themselves to the weather elements and permitting them to rest along the way!
Insides of the bridge - benches are found by the sides where you can sit down to take a breath, if necessary. Now, for such a long structure, it was impressive to hear that not a single nail was used in its construction!
Resting your feet in the bridge also means giving your eyes a feast! Okay, maybe this isn't applicable to every single wind-rain bridge in China but it does apply to the one at the Forgotten Wonderland attraction!
The drizzle added a layer of mystic to the karst formations on the background even though the purpose built traditional buildings remained crystal clear. If you ask me, i would very much prefer a clear sky for better photos!
