Summer Palace

Summer Palace was built for summer  vacation when the weather was hot in Forbidden City. Meanwhile, China was close to being changed into a republic. The Emperor pretended everything was fine but a majority of the country was in poverty. The longest walkway is over 870 meters long. Inside are over 10,000 paintings from four traditional stories. Stone boat cost over a million ton of silver.

  3. Years ago, when I was at Summer Palace, I spent half day to see all the paintings. All of them are from four famous books, which every child knows in China.
