Wow i am amazed at the beauty of this place.. get here early so you walk around. You can also reach here using boat.

If you have ever though a huge Palace, multipy that times 10 - that is what the Summer Palace looks like. An impressive place with impressive structures. Beautiful and huge, you can find a place to relax for a while while admiring all the temples around. Be ready to walk a lot, but also have your camera ready.

Absolutely beautiful place to spend the whole day . I wish I could have spent more time in here but travelling with a huge group we did only a few hours and I'd love to go back there again one day . This is the sort of place you see on tv and think this can't be real . Pure... More
This place was a great one to hide out from the crazy streets of this city. We felt very relaxing and comfortable. Just walk around the lake and garden and enjoy the great atmosphere. Do not miss this place!
