Photos taken in the Summer Palace in Beijing in October 2006. It's a relatively short taxi ride from town and it is very much recommended. Please click on the image to enlarge it.

Kunming Hu
Note: there is a lot of walking uphill on trails and steps - if you would like to get to the top instead of staying on the shore of Kunming Hu (where most people are). As it can be seen from the photos, the climb uphill is well worth it, as the crowds are left below and one can enjoy the beautiful views from the top in a relative tranquility...
