Hire a guide, hire a guide, hire a guide! It's a stunning place and we learned so much! Our hotel organized a taxi for us that waited for about an hour while we enjoyed this amazing house museum. Don't miss this!

The summer Palace, has been partly restored, and certainly worth a visit, Many part of the buildings are showing major signs of deterioration, and do need major work Worth a visit for sure

It would be great if someone invested money in maintenance of this magnifficent site. It is truly beautiful. The interiors are fantastic. Lots of ornate stucco outside and great ornate ceilings and opulent mirrored interiors. Well worth a visit.

This was clearly once a magnificent palace. We were impressed by the beautiful ballroom and the collection of Chinese and Japanese porcelain. There are a number of peacocks outside the palace.

It is worth visiting although you can see better elsewhere. The style of the building is more European and there are some nice interior decorations.
