I still think it is large enough to call it a resort !!!!One has to venture all around that amazing lake. It is a new dimension as one goes around that palace !!!!!!

The Summer Palace in Beijing ? first built in 1750, largely destroyed in the war of 1860 and restored on its original foundations in 1886 ? is a masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design. The natural landscape of hills and open water is combined with artificial features such as pavilions, halls, palaces, temples and bridges to form a harmonious ensemble of outstanding aesthetic value This place was really fun to venture around at!!! !! A place that one could spend time and see so much that you wouldn't have realized existed there.....
Directions: I again took a # 15 bus for 1 rmb to the bus terminal and then transfered to a # 332 bus for also 1 rmb that went right onto the grounds of the Summer Place
