“good day trip”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

The summer palace is beautiful but sprawling.we were caught up in traffic on the way there(on public buses)via the zoo so we were pretty tired getting there but managed to take most of it in, there are great temples and views of the lake. Make sure to give your self the whole day there.

“Nice place for an afternoon getaway”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

The place is very big & you could still feel the grandeur of its past as you walked through the Summer Palace. You would not feel like you have to squeeze with everyone as you walked as there is plenty of space for everyone to move around. Go there early morning if you want to avoid the crowd & heat. You would probably need to spend at least 2-3hours there if you want to take your time to cover the whole place.
