The Summer Palace

Now that Beijing’s Line 4 subway line has opened, this large and beautiful park is easier to get to than ever. It’s a great place to explore on a pleasant day in the spring or fall. We recommend you going during the week, however, if you can.  On weekends it can be incredibly crowded. Take a picnic and be prepared to walk long distances. The views from the top of the hill overlook Beijing and are simply stunning.
