Besides these palace in different sizes and effects, it show various articles for daily use made from the valuable materials such as jade, emerald, coral, gold, etc. Don't you think this was a luxury tour?

According to the tour guide, the Emperor Qianlong loved the jade deeply. In his life, he wrote 800 poems to described and praise the jade. Of course, he ordered workers made different furniture, appliances and decorations from jade. Loved jade had become his special hobby in that time.
