12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Scarlet Border

In the middle of this bustling life, it's precious to take a break and travel back in time. To be aligned with the flow of history, to experience the Feudalism era, to witness the rapid changes and to treasure the residues that remained. After decades of wars, blood, and bombs, the Citadel City has lost numerous of its sight. Nonetheless, grandiose beauty is still remained after years. Those scarlet doors drew the designated border for imperial maids. They came in with the blooming youths, they left with the faded beauties.
