Being the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China, the Summer Palace greatly influences Chinese horticulture and landscape. It is recognized as 'The Museum of Royal Gardens' and ranked amongst the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1998.
Composed mainly of Longevity Hill (Wanshou Shan) and Kunming Lake, the Summer Palace radiates fully the natural beauty and the grandeur of royal gardens. Follow your guide to visit the lakeside pavilion of Marble Boat, the richly painted Long Corridor, take a boat ride on the Kunming Lake, listen to your guide’s commentary of the royal history and enjoy the stunning scenery.
