What to Expect

As its name suggests, Summer Palace used to be a retreat for the royal family to spend summer time. Being one of the best examples of Chinese imperial gardens and a landmark in Beijing, it is almost included in all tours of Beijing. Why not book a ticket and spare half a day for a tour in Summer Palace to please yourself?

The site features the court area, Longevity Hill and Kunming Lake.


In the court area, you can see zigzag corridors, pathways, pavilions, bridges, gardens, rockeries, and palaces where Empress Dowager Cixi interviewed officials and conducted state affairs in her late years.

The Longevity Hill and Kunming Lake emphasize more on natural beauty. You can admire hilltop views or take a boat ride to find a way for more stunning photos.

    The place was wonderful, the whole visit will take you 6-7 hours. Tickets (with QR code) were really easy to use, it is a way to avoid long queues.
