Check In: HOMA, The Hotel Of Modern Art in China

Today in conjunction with Chinese New Year we pay tribute to a masterpiece of architecture in Southern China: Yuzi Paradise. The splendid 1320 acre-park was founded in 1996 by Taiwanese entrepreneur Tsao Rhy Chang to promote contemporary arts and culture in China and to host a series of sculpture symposium. Its gardens, open to the public since 2006, feature work by commissioned artists from around the world.
