What people are saying:

Yuanmingyuan has always been the place that dad wants to go, this time finally achieved the wish. Because the park is bigger, dad is older, so the focus is to see the old Western buildings. Look at those incomplete buildings, as if back in the past years... shocking, heartbreaking. Worth a visit.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Old Summer Palace is a famous imperial garden constructed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries during the Qing Dynasty. It consists of three sections: Yuanming Garden, Changchun Garden, and Yichun Garden. Its excellent view earned it the reputation of "the garden of gardens." However in 1860, British and French troops burned the main buildings into ashes. These days, tourists can only look at the wreckage and imagine its glory during the time of the Qing Dynasty. If your imagination is not good enough, you can learn more about what the garden looked like through the miniature model in Changchun Garden.
