Beautiful Scenery in Summer Palace

Since on business I didn't have much time for traveling, only a half day free time. And I really enjoyed a great Half Day Summer Palace Tour this afternoon.

The tour guide picked me up at my hotel at 1:00 pm and drove me to the destination. On the way, he told me a lot of information about the Summer Palace. It is the largest and best preserved imperial garden of the Qing Dynasty extant in Beijing, as well as a famous classical imperial garden. Based on Kunming Lake and Longevity Hill, modeled on the scenic West Lake in Hangzhou and the Southern Gardens, it is a large landscape park, which is also the well protected Royal Palace Regency.

The Longevity Hill is the main attraction and the majority of the scenic spots are on that hill. From the foot of the "Yunhui Palace" arch, by the row of Cloud Gate, the Second Palace, Paiyun Palace, Dehui Temple, Buddhist Pavilion, until the top of the wisdom of the sea form a layer increasing axis. In the back of the mountain there stand the Tibetan Buddhist buildings and the colorful glass pagoda with green trees. Here the lake, mountains, islands, the embankment and the constructions, with a garden outside by "Borrow Scene" to form an embroidered landscape picture.

While entered the entrance, I was indulged in the charming garden landscape. The main lake-Kunming Lake almost account for three-quarters of park area. Have a view to the west from Kunming Lake, I saw the scenery outside seamless with the inner hills and lake and this is an outstanding example of Chinese garden practice of "Borrow Scene".

In my opinion, Suzhoujie is the place should not miss during the trip to Summer Palace. It is the market with traditional atmosphere and many of them are in low prices. I also bought a small one as the souvenirs.

I really enjoy a happy time this afternoon. And thank you very much to my professional English speaking tour guide.
