Summer Palace, Beijing: 310 reviews and 617 photos

Originally built in 1891, the southern part of this structure was a two-storey hall with the northern section connected to the Grand Stage. Actors applied their make-up here. It is now a showroom for various forms of transport including stage coaches and a car given by one of the court ministers to the Empress Dowager. It is believed that this car was the first to be imported into China.
