Summer Palace, Beijing: 14 reviews and 15 photos


Fondest memory: Here at the Summer Palace: A glimpse of the Imperial sleeping quarters of Her Imperial Majesty -- Cixi, the Empress Dowager. In case some of you don't know much about her, she was a real mean person. Her devilish feats included poisoning her son, the weak Emperor to death; forced her son's favourite concubine to commit suicide by jumping into one of the Palace's wells.
