Summer Palace

Relax at the largest loyal park at Summer Palace

The Summer Palace is the largest and best-preserved imperial garden in China. Its Chinese name, Yi He Yuan, translates as ‘Garden of Nurtured Harmony’ or ‘Garden for Maintaining Health and Harmony’. The Summer Palace is virtually a museum of traditional Chinese garden arts that blends rocks, trees, pavilions, terraces, lakes, ponds, waterside gazebos, paths, stone bridges, and other features to create a poetic effect between different scenes. As you meander around the Summer Palace, you will frequently find the vista changing.
