Situated in the Haidian District northwest of Beijing, Summer Palace is 9 miles (15 kilometers) from the downtown area. Being the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China, it greatly influences Chinese horticulture and landscape with its famous natural views and cultural interests, which also has long been recognized as ‘The Museum of Royal Gardens‘. – http://www.travelchinaguide.com

The combination ticket price is 60 yuan.

Summer Palace can be divided into four parts: the Court Area, Front and Rear Area of Longevity Hill, and Kunming Lake Area.

I had so much fun donning Empress royal dress and taking a boat in Kunming Lake. I will let the pictures speak for themselves this time.
