Quite facinating

Chinese must be one of the most difficult languages to write. You can learn how to write a couple of symbols and watch the experts too.

Visited back in November 2013, here's one of the best landmarks for Chinese Calligraphy and finding out how to write with the paint brush! You can take calligraphy class here as a trial for 100+ yuan then there are also different exhibits of the calligraphy works of those renowned figures in history. Very good!
