        • I spent hours walking these paths. Walk the bridges and covered walkways, watch the boats pass, and enjoy the architecture and landscaping. In the spring the cherry blossoms bloom and so do the crowds. Totally worth a visit. This was made for the emperor to enjoy, so you will likely find it impressive! It is more natural and casual than the Forbidden City.
        • We went in the winter months so it was chilly but we had a great time nonetheless! The audio guide that we bought at the front gate was fantastic. Spent hours walking around and never got bored!
        • Stunning place, even in winter and despite the bitterly cold weather. We had a guide, who really brought the palace's fascinating history to life, and I definitely recommend doing the same. Plus wear very very warm clothes in winter!!
        • Fantastic Experience Quite a view into Chinese Culture/History!! One of the longest covered walkways in China as you walk to different sights. The pagodas are Beautiful. I loved the dragon boats that traveled across the lake. The Stone Dragon Boat is a must see.
        • This place is huge. If your tour devotes an hour or less here there is not time to see everything. You need at least 3 hours and that still won't be enough time to see everything! The lake and scenery is beautiful. We went in February and it was cold and grey, this would be a place to visit in summertime if that is an option, but if not it is definatley still worth coming to see!
