The beautiful Summer Palace offers tranquility in the heart of the city

The Summer Palace

Amongst the modern buildings and crowded streets of Beijing you'll find this haven of tranquility. The Summer Palace in Beijing's northwest boasts some of the most beautiful flora you'll ever see and is the perfect place to rewind after a busy day roaming the city.

Built in the 1700s the Palace was a place of royal residence and is incredibly significant for its number of wonders. Spanning over 300 hectares, the expansive grounds include gardens, a vast lake and ancient pavilions, temples, towers, bridges, corridors and more. 

A listed World Heritage site, The Summer Palace is the place to go for peace and serenity in the heart of the city.
