The sun has gradually gone down; the undulating West Hill seems more dignified and dark. During the festival period, the Summer Palace is as brightly lit as in daylight.
The Summer Palace, one of the finest examples of garden architecture in China, is in the northwest suburbs of Beijing.
Situated in the northwest of Beijing City, the Summer Palace is the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China.
Over 60 stores extend from North Palace Gate entrance into a street about 300 meters (328.1 yards) in length.
Beijingers flock here in autumn when the maple leaves saturate the hillsides in great splashes of red.In winter, after a night of heavy snow, the park is even more beautiful!
