The assembly of lakes, palaces, gardens, and pavilions that make up Summer Palace (Yiheyuan) dates back to the 12-century Jin dynasty. This World Heritage Site served as a residence for members of the Qing dynasty in the 18th and 19th centuries. The complex contains an exemplary collection of landscaped royal gardens, temples, bridges, and palaces. Look out for the 96 m (315 ft) stone boat constructed entirely from marble, and for the elaborately painted and decorated corridor connecting the Hall of Joy and Longevity to the Shizhang Pavilion.

On ne peut pas rester insensible au charme de ces lieux chargés d'histoire. On voit peut etre quelque part la mégalomanie de l'homme...mais quelles beautés ils nous ont laissées... more »We cannot remain insensitive to the charm of these places laden with history. We can see somewhere the megalomania of man... But what beauties they left us...
Beautiful park in the center of the city. Apparently much of it has been restored but the long walkway is stunning and has lots of beautiful designs on it. In the winter, there is a lake that is frozen over that you can pay to do winter activities on; like ice skating or sledding etc. It's a nice walk and a good contrast to the forbidden city and to hear more interesting stories about the key historical figures.
