Old Summer Palace
Adjacent to the Summer Palace, it is composed of the Yuanming, Changchun and Qichun three gardens. It is a large-scale royal palace established and operated by the emperors of the Qing Dynasty over 150 years.
·In 1860, the British and French allied forces burned the main building to ashes. Now tourists can only hang their feet among the wreckage and look for the glorious empire.
· There are many small scenic spots in Qichun Garden, which is a large collection of small waterscape gardens. Today, it is the main venue of the annual lotus festival in Yuanmingyuan.
·Changchun Garden takes large-scale waterscape as the main body, and the well-known “big water method” is located here
