Unfortunately, if you're traveling with a tour group, you will not see much or go far. You'll only see one section of the palace. You'll need at least a whole day to see everything. Get here early!

Make sure to plan your visit since all temples inside close their doors at 5 pm. However, you can walk around til 8 pm. There are beautiful spots to watch the sunset. Don’t buy the map! Not worth it.

It is SO big. Definitely try the paddle boats and instead of walking to each corner of the palace, take the boats! It's 15 yuan for one way. The further corners are quieter with less people

Artificial lake looks like a small sea, and all these big hills are made of excavated ground. Forethought and accuracy of medieval chinese landscape design could impress anyone. Come for a whole day.

Wear comfortable shoes and prepare to stay for at least half of the day. There will be a lot of walking, a lot of stair climbing, but it will be worth it. A must see for anyone visiting Beijing.

Here you can climb Longevity Hill (must buy ticket) and have a great view of Summer Palace and Kunming Lake. You can also visit marble boat or watch seniors singing and playing traditional songs.
