I was in Beijing for the weekend, so I took a few friends to visit the Summer Palace. I've been here multiple times, and different times of the year. I must say that if you plan to visit the Summer Palace, the best time to do it is NOT in the summer. Everybody else will have the same idea. There are LOT'S of people who visit in the summer.

If you visit, make sure to have your transportation to and from the palace arranged beforehand. You will not be able to catch a taxi anywhere near this place!

Plan on getting some walking done at the Summer Palace. There is a scenic lake, with lots of historic buildings. Read up on the history of it before visiting, to maximize your visit. I logged about 4 miles of walking here today - much of it on stairs.

Great views. Tough to take photos with all the people who frequent the site.

If you get the chance to hike the Great Wall (especially on a rare blue-sky day), you do it. 10/10 amazing.

This trail is rather easy. One can say there is nothing spetacular about it. However, the waterfalls and the ponds in the area make the trip worthwhile. Beijing lacks wather and waterfalls.
