These ruins are all that remains of several grand palaces that made up a summer retreat for Chinese emperors from the 15th to mid-19th centuries. Occupying a space the size of Central Park in New York, the Old Summer Palace (Yuanming Yuan) is now a collection of marble chunks, crumbling statues, and broken columns.

Full day visit to the UNESCO Imperial Gardens - The Emperor's Disneyland

Full day visit to the UNESCO Imperial Gardens - The Emperor's Disneyland

Beijing Summer is not a joke, we didn’t have air-conditioning 110 years ago unfortunately, so our smart majesty built himself gardens to cool himself down, to make this outdoor air conditioner looks pretty, he sent 100 imperial painters travelled to the most beautiful places in Southern China, painted the view down and built the same back here into his imperial gardens, in this way, he could enjoy the wonderful landscapes of his country just in Beijing, how creative! In this tour, we take you to the New Summer Palace where you can get the experience feeling like an emperor indulge himself in the past + the Old Summer Palace, where was invaded, robbed, burnt. You are more connected with its incarnation, to see what’s it like during the most prosperous time, to imagine if you would feel heartbreaking like the emperor when he saw his favorite garden was burnt and gone forever. And what’s more, you will get the idea of their fantasy life and royal family’s gossips from us...
