What To Expect

Summer Palace (Yiheyuan)
Meet your guide at Beigongmen Subway Station Exit C (Line 4), and follow him or her to the Summer Palace where you’ll get a rare look at some parts of the palace that you wouldn’t have thought of visiting yourself. Make sure you enjoy this opportunity to ask your guide as many questions as you have.

The Summer Palace is one of Beijing’s most popular landmarks and one of the best examples of an imperial garden in China. The site, which covers a total of 2.9 square kilometers and incorporates a huge lake, has long been a royal garden and was considerably enlarged during the reign of Empress Dowager Cixi who effectively controlled China for 47 years between 1861 and 1908.

After the tour your guide will take you back to the subway station to make your own way back to your hotel.
