An official delegation from Beijing presented a gift to its friendship city, the Thai capital of Bangkok on Saturday – a Chinese pavilion located in Bangkok's Lumpini Park, after two years' building.
The "Sino-Thai Friendship Pavilion", sitting on the green lawn of Bangkok's most-visited downtown public park, is a Chinese classical-styled, double-roofed pavilion of 8.8 meters high. Built with 300 tons of pale marble and golden-color glazed tiles, the pavilion is a work of Chinese designers and builders to present one of the most typical buildings in classical Chinese gardens.
