  Situated in western outskirts of Beijing‘s Haidian District, the Summer Palace is 10 kilometers from the central city. It is China's leading classical garden which enjoys a worldwide reputation. It was opened to the public in 1924 and included in the UNESCO world heritage list in 1998. A whole day is needed to view it in detail.

  After a night of heavy snow, the Summer Palace is even more beautiful than usual.
