    What to Expect
    After central Beijing hotel pickup, travel by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the UNESCO-listed Summer Palace, on the city’s outskirts.

    Framing Kunming Lake, this complex of pavilions and lawns was the summertime retreat of China’s 19th-century emperors, and is regarded as the world’s most beautiful classical Chinese garden.

    On arrival, set off to explore this exquisite retreat. Follow the lakeside pathways, seeing attractions such as Longevity Mountain, the Hall of Benevolence, and the Marble Boat, together with temples, pagodas, and bridges.

    From here, drive to the imperial mansion-style garden restaurant for dinner. Absorb the exotic architecture and air filled with the scent of flowers and classical Chinese music, and be welcomed by a beautifully costumed maid of honor, complete with a traditional silk handkerchief in hand.

    Exchange the greeting of 'Nin Ji Xiang,' meaning good fortune and welcome. Then, if you wish, choose to dress in imperial costume (additional cost) — donning the robes of an emperor or empress before being shown to your table.

    Savor a royal-style Chinese dinner, and as you dine, enjoy an imperial music and mask-changing show performed by richly costumed artistes.

    Your experience then finishes after your meal with a hotel drop-off.
