One of the largest stores on 5th Avenue, it is clearly identifiable either day or night by its elaborate exterior design, which at night features lights throughout the store windows. Which is only fitting for a brand that has become synonymous with style and class around the world to be seen by everyone any time of the day. The four-story behemoth, which takes up 43,000 square feet, opened its doors in February 2009. It was designed by the architecture firm of Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas (also responsible for the design of Armani stores in Hong Kong and Japan). There are two distinctive features that separate the 5th Avenue Armani store from the other fashion stores, one being the high-end restaurant that sits atop the store. It gives a reason for people to visit the store even if they are not particularly interested in shopping and it remains open after the retail part of the store, with an express elevator that runs to it after the rest of the store has closed. The other standout feature comes courtesy of the store’s architects, which is the dramatic spiral steel staircase sitting in the center that echoes in its sweeping curves the design of the Guggenheim Museum. This alone makes it worth a visit. If the brand name, Armani were not enough, these unique factor make the Armani store on 5th Avenue one of the top stores in New York City. Besides the architectural aspect there are also the stylish offerings in men's, women's and children's clothing plus home furnishings and chocolates. It has just about everything one would need to dress themselves in some of the finest clothes on the planet and live the Armani experience of style. 10 BEST STORES is a series featuring, in the editor' s opinion, the top 10 stores in a given City. less

The complex was visited by the Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties for annual ceremonies. It has been regarded as a Taoist temple, The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests is a magnificent circular building, built on three levels of marble stone base, where the Emperor prayed for good harvests. The building is completely wooden, with no nails. The Summer Palace is mainly dominated by Longevity Hill and the Kunming Lake. It covers an expanse of 2.9 square kilometers, three quarters of which is water. Longevity Hill is about 60 meters (200 feet) high and houses many buildings positioned in sequence. The front hill is rich in the splendid halls and pavilions, while the back hill, in sharp contrast, is quiet with natural beauty The central Kunming Lake covering 2.2 square kilometers was entirely man made and the excavated soil was used to build Longevity Hill. In the Summer Palace, one finds a variety of palaces, gardens, and other classical-style architectural structures. In December 1998, UNESCO included the Summer Palace on its World Heritage List. It declared the Summer Palace "a masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design". The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China in part to protect the Chinese Empire against intrusions . Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century BC While some portions north of Beijing portrayed in this video and near tourist centers have been preserved and even extensively renovated, in many locations the Wall is in disrepair. The Great Wall is a World Heritage Site. less
