What travelers say:

Good place to visit. Needs atleast 4 to 5 hours to visit all. Far from the main city. Lots of things to do for kids too. Nearby you can find many restaurants and souvenir shops.

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.
