If you are in the area you must see the summer palace. A vacation spot hundreds of years ago for Royality as an escape from the heat of the Forbidden City, it is truly a work of art and design.
If you go in the early morning or on a rainy day you can escape some of the crowds. The rain adds a ethereal quality to an already magical place.
