We visited this attraction as the last stop on our one-day coach trip to ByHealth’s Transparent Factory and the associated fantastic Nutrition Exploratorium (TA Reviewed) followed by a nice lunch and a quick visit to see (not to travel on) the Macau – Zhuhia-HK bridge.

Our tour-guide told us we had one hour to explore the park. Not long but my wife and I spied a small road train which for ¥40 each offered a quick way to see the park. We bought tickets and within two minutes were on our way. We glided past the biggest dragon ink stone, a few statues, and the Queen’s palace behind locked gates. Then we stopped halfway to as a photo opportunity with a view across the lake, the cable car going up the mountain, and a small arched bridge.

The second half ended at the re-creation of Western Mansions of the Beijing Summer Palace. There’s an information board giving details. Very nice, with plenty of fountains which was refreshing not only for us, but hundreds of others, as we were enjoying the warmest afternoon of the year.

Then it was a short walk to the entrance to the re-creation of the Summer Palace, unfortunately we’d run out of time for a visit. Really, another hour would have been nice to explore the palace.

Was the bus-ride around the park worth it? Let’s say it showed that there’s not much to see once you leave the confines of the palace and mansions. I must admit to a hankering for a cable-car ride up the mountain.

We congregated around the tour guide, who led us back to the coach for the two-hour drive back to YueXiu Metro Station in Guangzhou where we’d departed 12 hours ago.

The night exterior entrance view is beautiful with lights up along the perimeters of the building structure. Entrance is free and there are about 4 main halls of historical relics to view like imperial costume, bedroom, dinning hall, etc and the rest are parks.

Takes about 1-2 hours to visit if you do not intend to walk the park which we did not. There are cute mercedes benz buggy ride for a fee if you are lazy to walk the entire park. Would not say is a must see but do so if you have time or have not seen the one in Beijing.

We went to take photos. 20 minutes were enough to walk a fast round. Spent zero cent. The site was under renovation/construction.

The whole palace is quite big. Other than the palace, you can take a Cruise to sail over the lake. There is a theme park and also a snow park inside the palace. For those who is not convenient to walk far away, you can take the buggy to hang around the whole palace with RMB30 per pax

I had the opportunity to visit such a cute place and be an empress for a day. Wearing the beautiful empress dress and did a photoshoot to remember. I went with chinese friends so they explained the history, culture and all about it. Could't be great than this.

It is a nice an historical place where you’ll not have to pay any entrance fees (was the case when I was there). The palace is split in several buildings showing historical pieces from weapons to cloths.

This is a very busy area so rather go there on the morning.

Stunning reproduction of the imperial Yuanming Palace in Beijing (also known as the Summer Palace).
Other than the replicas, the park has a cable car and holds theatre on scheduled days.
You can also buy feed to feed the huge fish!

Seriously this is called a Chinese palace ? Haphazard design and a bizarre mix of east and west ... I find it appalling . There is even Snow White and 7 dwarfs in this palace . It’s a waste of time . Saving grace - it’s free entry

We self drive in China and planned to go for some tourist attraction in Zhuhai area. We choose The New Yuan Ming Palace because it was free to visit. Down the road from nearby with the aid of GPS, we arrived our destination smoothly. Parking spaces was huge and with charges. The entire place was a bid faded yet the outlook was acceptable. The Palace buildings were still in shape and the lake inside was beautiful too. For boat ride or hiring an electric car touring around was a good idea since walk around was quite exhausted. We stayed there for two hours and took few pictures with the environment, it's worth for a tour if you got nowhere in Zhuhai.
