The Summer Palace is one of Beijing’s most popular landmarks and one of the best examples of an imperial garden in China. With its hilltop views, lake and different monuments, it merits an entire day’s exploration.

Visit: Summer Palace (Yiheyuan), No.19 Xinjian Gongmen Road, Haidian District, Beijing 100080 China

The Summer Palace is located 9 miles (15 kilometers) from downtown Beijing, and can be reached via subway by Beigongmen metro station. First built in 1750, it is the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China and was used by the emperors to rest and entertain.

The site, which covers a total of 2.9 square kilometers and incorporates a huge lake, was considerably enlarged during the reign of Empress Dowager Cixi who effectively controlled China for 47 years between 1861 and 1908. Besides the lake and the main hill, this impressive complex includes several pavilions, towers, bridges, corridors and even a marble boat.

This is the main entrance ticket to the Summer Palace. For 4 extra attractions: Tower of Buddhist Incense; Dehe garden; Suzhou Street and Wenchang Tower you should pay extra fee at spot.

In order to access the park, please scan the QR code you will receive by e-mail 5 days before your travel date at the entrance turnstiles. Please use the QR code on that e-mail, as the Viator's voucher is not accepted.

Another reviewer mentioned that the tickets purchased online was unusable. We found this to be true. We purchased the tickets in advance and received a notice that the voucher cannot be used, tickets will be sent separately. I received a separate text notification for vouchers. When I presented it at the summer palace they said they know nothing about it and that I had to buy tickets to enter. The cost of the ticket is less in person than online. We paid 30 RMB each. We only purchased them in advance because we were arriving during Golden week. However we went on the last day of Golden week in the afternoon and there was no line at the ticket office. Here is what the tickets should look like.

VAle muchísimo la pena. Es precioso. En cuanto a la entrada fue relativamente sencillo, me llegaron varios emails, y al final en uno de ellos había un pantallazo de un móvil con el código QR. Cmo allí no podía utilizar mi correo de Google me hice un pantallazo de esa imagen y me sirvió sin problemas para acceder al recinto.

Cet endroit est magnifique, un peu à l'extérieur du centre ville (facilement accessible en métro). A voir sans hésiter, ça vaut le déplacement!

Posto fantastico fra colline, fiume e perfetta armonia.....come la sua collina E un luogo incantevole possono trovare i templi con il Buddha, il fiume nel quale si può navigare e godere del panorama delle colline, e un ponte strapieno di persone
