At present, China Highlights converts US Dollars to Chinese CNY at a rate of US$100 = CNY650. This is the answer to your question below. It is a approximate calculating for your reference.
CNY40 = US$6.15

I'm trying to write a paper on the Forbidden City and it has to be 3 pages. I 'm on page 3 a I' try to fing cool facts but every site I go to it is the same thing. So do you have some cool 6th grade facts i could use? Thanks!!!
Hi. I searched on our Chinese search engine and found some interesting facts. I translated them into English for you and hope they are of use to you. Note that they are for reference only, and I am not responsible for their authenticity.
1, Why did the Forbidden City use yellow color as its fundamental color.
In ancient China, there was a theory about five elements, among these, green, red, white and black respectively represent the four directions, while yellow symbolized the center. Ancient Chinese used yellow to symbolize a country, and it is the exclusive color for the emperor and a symbol for imperial power. If a common subject were to be found to dress in yellow, he would be killed. The buildings in the Forbidden City used lots of yellow glazed tile, and together with the red walls, red pillars and multi-colored paintings, created a magnificent imperial air.
2. How many dragons are there in the Forbidden City?
Images of dragon were used exclusively by ancient emperors, and ancient emperors thought they were the embodiment of dragon. If we assume that there are 6 dragons on the roof of each hall, the total number of dragon is estimated to be 60,000. If by adding the dragon images on other buildings and daily commodities, the number is countless.
The best way to know a place is to visit it in person. If you plan to visit China in the future, feel free to send us your inquiry to email@example.com, our travel advisors will reply within 24 hours. Mia Yang replied on 2010-11-23
