I passed this hideous monstrosity five times before I could bear to photograph it.
I couldn't possibly get any closer to it than this.
Erm... cockloft? And yes, the quietness is indeed disturbed.
Another stunning example of why we need to protect Chinglish as a distinguished art form.
Quoted from signage: "Left Increased Longevity
The huge stones can be "long life stone".They lean
each other to be thread scenery.It was ever built by w-
orkers,while a coincidence is existence between the nature
and artificial work.Though it is built by works,we can say
it is made by the hands of nature.Anybody who p-
ass through the hole can get more long lifetime,so it is ca-
lled "long lfie stone""
So wait, even though the Long Life Stones are man-made constructions, we can still call them natural
because mankind is natural? (Fourth-grade flashback: When you call me a jerk, you are really telling
me I'm beautiful. Because a jerk's a tug, a tug's a boat, a boat sails on water, water's nature, and
nature's beautiful! Yay sillygisms!)
View from the... cockloft. Yes, from the There Floor of the Cockloft.

Wow, these are obviously baobob trees with an actual volcano in the background.
And these are real rocks!
And if you believe that, I have a camel made out of seashells that I'd like to sell you.
We regret to inform you that this whole park, including everything you saw--
right down to the details on the weeds, was meticulously created by hand by the Chinese army,
who have a post on the island and stop tourists from going beyond the point of scenic fabrication.
