Summer Palace

The Summer Palace

Timeout Beijing magazine says: It’s not hard to understand why the Summer Palace is one of Beijing’s most frequented and well-loved sights. It’s not just its picturesque setting at the foot of the western hills, surrounded by the expansive Kunming Lake; it also offers beautiful architectural examples from the later Qing Dynasty all of which can be enjoyed from ground level or at a bird’s-eye view by climbing up to one of the temples or pagodas dotted across Longevity Hill.

Purple Bamboo Park

The Purple Bamboo Park

The Fragrant Hills

The Fragrant Hills

Timeout Beijing says: Just 25km (15.5 miles) from Beijing’s city centre, “Xiangshan” (Fragrant Hills) draws crowds of visitors every day, particularly in autumn, and for good reason. This is when all the leaves on the mountain’s smoke trees turn a wonderful shade of red. Xiangshan is also a pleasant place to visit during the summer months since, thanks to its elevation and leaf coverage, which offers cooler temperatures and provides a refreshing reprieve from the sizzling heat of the city.
