"Another day, another location,..." Summer Palace Tip by jmoore

Summer Palace, Beijing: 311 reviews and 620 photos


Another day, another location, and different weather. Always pack your 'brawlie'( or however one spells unbrella for those in England) where you can carry it with you easily. [I have a list of things which one should always carry upon their person.] This was a lovely and gentle walk. An added attraction was a brief cruise on the princesses' lake in a barge. Too bad that there was not a no smoking sign on the boat because several men seemed to feel that this was a smoking area. At this site each locatiion had its own story/history and our female guide did a good job of both hearding her group along and of answering many questions.
