Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Diaoyutai State Guesthouse is a historic hotel and guesthouse complex in Beijing, China. It includes a number of buildings, houses and gardens. The name "Diaoyutai" means "angling platform," and is so named because the site was a favourite fishing spot of Emperor Zhangzong of Jin China. It is not directly linked to the Diaoyutai Islands. The hotel complex was also mentioned as one of the Ten Great Buildings, a list of landmarks constructed in 1959 for the 10th anniversary of the People's Republic of China. The Guesthouse is used to house visiting foreign dignitaries and provincial government officials. During the Cultural Revolution, it was the permanent residence of Jiang Qing, or Madame Mao. Recently, the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse has been opened up to paying customers.show more
