The Summer Palace: China's Top Attraction from Beijing

The Summer Palace

The Summer Palace

No visit to Beijing and its attractions will be complete without walking through the vast expanse of the Summer Palace. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest and best-preserved royal garden in China dominated by Longevity Hill and Kunming Lake.

The Summer Palace was the refuge of the royal family during the hot summer months in China because of its beautiful gardens, pavilion, and temple that were designed to create harmony with nature.

The Summer Palace was originally created to provide a consistent water supply to Beijing. The Qianlong Emperor expanded the Western Lake creating Gaoshui Lake and Yangshui Lake.

These three lakes are what is known today as Kunming Lake, the best one in all of Beijing. Longevity Hill, on the other hand, stands 60 meters high offering a panoramic view of the entire complex and it is filled with beautiful pavilions and halls that showcase intricate Chinese architecture.

Since the Summer Palace is one of Beijing’s most visited attractions by tourists, it’s best to book a tour that comes with a guide who will take you through this vast complex and the rest of Beijing’s top landmarks. Get in touch with us to know more about the different options you have for your trip to majestic Beijing.
