Would you like to spend some quality time with your empire-toppling love—without all the empire-toppling drama? Look no further than the Huaqing Hot Springs, where between the hours of 7:30 AM and 6:30 PM, you can visit the site where the romance between Yang Guifei and Emperor Xuanzong first blossomed.
Huaqing Hot Springs is located about 25 km east of Xi’an (formerly Chang’an, the western capital of the Tang dynasty), and was constructed at the behest of Xuanzong himself in 723. The site enjoys not only naturally-occurring hydrothermal springs that are said to cure disease, but also beautiful, scenic views of mountains and flower gardens to set your mind and soul at ease. A statue of Lady Yang herself graces this historic site, adding a hint of invigorating tragedy to your romantic getaway.
What’s more, while in the area, you can also hike or take a cable car to the peak of Mount Li to find a spectacular panoramic view of Xi’an, or hop on Tourist Bus 306 to see the famous Terracotta Warriors of Qin Shi Huang only 10 minutes away.
No matter what you choose to do, you and your love are sure to have eyes only for each other. Watch out!
It’s the classic dilemma: you look in the mirror and suddenly notice a blemish. Maybe it’s a zit. Maybe it’s a wrinkle. Regardless, you’re tired of any imperfection. Why can’t we look perfect all the time?
Look no more, because now you can look so perfect that you may even jeopardize a man’s future and be called evil! Don’t worry though, because everyone else will just say this out of spite. . . or might they have some merit? Find out by purchasing this limited edition Yang Guifei Beauty Kit for only 4 instalments of $9.95. The kit comes equipped with ivory foundation to make you pale and pure, eye-liner to bring out your beautiful and tantalizing eyes, a concealer to cover blemishes and ensure your grace, and a sweet-smelling spray to help you sweep anyone off his or her feet.
And all for $9.95? Think about it: that’s the equivalent to a cup of coffee a day for a month! Practically nothing!
