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.

Summer Palace (Yiheyuan) Reviews
とても広い敷地の観光地です。大きな湖とそれに面する建築物がここの魅力です。西太后などの歴史上の有名人が愛した場所のようで、それは豪華な避暑地だったのではないかと思います。スケールの大きさはさすが中国だなぁと感じる場所でした。 more »It is a tourist spot of a very large site. The big lake and the building facing it are the charms here. It seems to be a place loved by historical celebrities such as Xi Dazai, and I think it was a luxurious summer resort. The size of the scale was indeed a place where I felt that it was China.
נמצא בצפון העיר מחייב שהמדריכה תהיה בקיאה בהיסטוריה של המקום מתפרס על שטח גדול מאד הליכה נעימה לאורך האגם המלאכותי במקום מספר את ההיסטוריה של נשות הקיסרים more »Located in the north of the city, it requires the instructor to be familiar with the history of the place and extends over a very large area of a pleasant walk along the artificial lake instead of telling the history of the Emperors ' wives.
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.
