The New Yuan Ming Palace is now free. There is no entrance fees and visitors are allowed to enter a secondary performance area for hobbyists or club members to sing, dance and make merry for all to see. We were told that tickets are required for the night performance at the main theatre, where I had visited twice before over... More

Sorry folks, but total misery. Maybe I should have ventured further in but I didn't get passed the tatty entrance area before turning and running away. I was happier spending my spare hours at the airport than here. Avoid unless desperate, at least it's free to get in.

This is a park with exceptional views and landscapes, it is really nice! I recommend to go in the evening, when you can see the sunset, it is even romantic!!

This is a well-known attraction. The first time you come it is amazing, after that it is a little boring. It is a must see place in Zhuhai though. I heard night shows are excellent but I never tried them yet.

We visited in December and practically had the park to ourselves. It was a great break from the crowds and traffic of China. Don't miss the live show in the evening. It was excellent, with horses, dancers, pyrotechnics, and music.

My visit last November 2014 was my second time in the park. Before that i had last visited over 2 years ago. In the two years, the park has become more run down. A lot of the fountains no longer appear to work or are in disrepair. Either that or they shut them down during "winter". I get that it's... More

The place exudes tranquility especially the lake and although replicas are rather crude but managed to date the place to imperial China historically. Hope that the place is not enveloped by too much commercialization in future.

This park is a copy of the summer palace in Beijing. It's pretty crowded but also large. You can rent a little electric car for about 80kuai which is kind of fun.

The New Yuan Ming Palace is replica of China Summer palace in Beijing. It is very beautiful place and good for learning about China's Kingdom life. We love about the detail of each room arrangement. We can also hire China King and Queen Costumes and take picture with it. Enjoy the place, enjoy the event, and learn about Chinese History.... More
